Office sentiment survey results 2021

Does the office still have a critical role to play in the New Zealand workplace environment? 

December 13, 2021

Quick takes:

  • The office remains integral to corporate strategy
  • Sustainability is of most importance for owners
  • The office market is now defined by strong collaboration
  • Flight to quality is an ongoing trend
  • Medium lease terms continue to be the norm

We received 218 responses split between employees, occupiers (employers) and property owners in our survey so that we could compile a report based on the unique viewpoints of each party.

The message is loud and clear that the office continues to have a critical role to play in the workplace environment, however it will need to evolve constantly to ensure it meets the needs and requirements for occupiers and their employees.

‘Increasingly, employees are becoming more vocal about their workplace expectations.’

This creates an opportunity for employers to gather information and work with landlords to create an environment that assists their attraction and retention strategies.

With more than 85% of our respondents wanting to return to the office at least 2 days a work, read more about the opportunities for New Zealand office occupiers and owners in 2022.
