What's Next for the Office with Kieron van Rooyen

In this episode, we discuss how work boundaries are blurring, real estate impacts of Covid-19, and how the office may change forever.


This episode features Kieron van Rooyen, Managing Director and Property Strategist at Turnkies. Kieron has extensive knowledge and experience in property strategy. Using property science, analytics and market research, Kieron has assisted clients from listed property funds, to emerging retailers with building effective property strategies. During his involvement with the Gauteng Chapter of the South African Council of Shopping Centres, Kieron lead the team responsible for creating a leasing standard document for the industry.

Our conversation focuses on the short and long-term impacts of Covid-19 on office real estate. We talk about how employers can make working from home more comfortable, how the office will change once employees can return, and the potential to shift to different office models such as co-working spaces.

We also spend time reflecting on how the present moment will reshape employee expectations. “We’re putting trust at the forefront of what you should expect from your employer when you return to work,” said Kieron.
