COVID-19 has forced many office landlords and operators to face a question they have never had to before – if the office is opened, will they come? Safety is at the heart of convincing companies and employees that it is appropriate to return to work and technology will play a vital role in making offices safe again. Join us on this webinar as we explore a number of innovative technologies that will help provide occupier assurances as we transition into the new phase of the lockdown.
