According to a study published today by Deutsche Hypo from the “Global Markets Real Estate” series, the “new work” megatrend is making the boundaries between personal and professional life less clear. Our professional lives are becoming increasingly integrated into our personal lives and vice versa. Properties with a multifunctional structure including space for restaurants, retail and fitness offer employees tangible added-value, increasing their comfort level and, as a result, their productivity. At the same time, our homes continue to undergo a transformation into workplaces with many people no longer being bound to one location in today’s knowledge society. People are able to decide for themselves where they want to work.
