How To Retain Top Talent

A survey by Colliers says office space design and location have become increasingly important for Canadian companies to attract and retain top talent. The 2014 Canadian Tenant Survey spoke with 225 real estate decision-makers across Canada who are responsible for their company’s office space plan and design, with things like cost control, business growth, staff well-being and team collaboration emerging as key factors (10-minute walking distance from public transportation was another big factor in choosing a workplace location). “Fifty-nine percent of respondents identified that in their next relocation or renovation they will be adding more collaborative space or common area space,” Vancouver-based Colliers market intelligence analyst Curtis Scott tells us.
