Coming up: key trends affecting the European market

From automation to changing work styles, Aki Stamatis, chairman of Fourfront Group, looks at the trends he is seeing affecting the European workplace market this year

In this video, Fourfront chairman Aki Stanatis identifies what he believes are the three core trends affecting the European market today.

The trends include the imminent introduction of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) into buildings. As part of this, the collection and interpretation of big data will have an impact on how we see, use and interact with buildings.

Aki Stamatis touches on the workplace as a destination and the rise of co-working. The success of organisations such as WeWork is a testament to this rising trend across Europe, and also globally.

The final trend addressed in this video is employee engagement. A new social contract is developing between an organisation and its employees that changes the way people interact and feel towards their company.
