COVID-19 has galvanised the industry into a new way of working and opened our eyes to what is possible as we imagine the future of the workplace.

ASFA’s future of the workplace series seeks to answer the questions remote working has raised around organisational outcomes, such as productivity and culture, and beyond the workplace itself, how superannuation funds should invest in commercial property.

Should work ever be the same again?

Does the ‘remote working’ mindset have any real longevity? Join this virtual briefing to hear a panel of thought leaders—from inside and outside the industry—discuss whether workplaces should ever be the same again.

You will gain insights into the innovations, technologies and opportunities behind remote working as the panel explore questions such as:

  • what have we learned from working in virtual teams?
  • is it possible to maintain an agile workforce remotely?
  • what does remote working mean for call centres and other member-facing resources?
  • what more do we need to do in terms of digital technology, automation and AI to build on what we have started?

Finding investment opportunities in commercial property

The global pandemic has galvanised a new way of working, and some commentators are suggesting that remote working is here to stay.

Changes in the way people work will have profound implications on commercial real estate. At this critical juncture, super funds need to start thinking about what the future of commercial real estate will look like.

At this virtual event, an expert panel will provide insights into the viability of commercial real estate as an asset class, answering questions such as:

  • which areas of commercial property are likely to be the biggest losers?
  • what will be the most resilient types of commercial property?
  • where will the best opportunities be found?
  • will COVID-19 mark the end of property as a relatively defensive asset?
