Given the massive, recent changes in the nature of office work, it’s more important than ever for office building owners, operators, and occupiers to have every tool at their disposal to provide the best experiences at their properties, including the end-user data and insights to demonstrate that value to tenants, employees, and investors alike.
To that end, HqO, in partnership with Commercial Observer, has announced an innovative new program for honoring those that are exceeding on this front.
The Commercial Observer Power Properties list, powered by HqO’s Real Estate Experience (REX) Platform, will recognize the top buildings, offices, and amenity spaces across the country that provide tenants and their employees with innovative, engaging, and productive spaces to work in.
To be eligible for inclusion on the list, office properties and spaces must earn an HqO Best Spaces to Work certification, the only recognition that validates end-user real estate experiences in spaces across the globe.
To do this, they need only launch the REX Assessment. This digital questionnaire takes no more than 10 minutes for a space’s end-users to complete and focuses on the importance of three categories of office experience: cultural aspects, activities, and physical & service features. Scores that beat the REX Index benchmark earn the Best Spaces to Work certification and are automatically eligible to be considered for the Commercial Observer Power Properties list.
“Real estate is transforming into an experiential business. Office space was once a required cost of doing business. But given how work is evolving, properties need to evolve as well to provide exceptional employee experiences to enable occupiers to get hard ROI from talent attraction, engagement, and retention,” said Chase Garbarino, Co-Founder and CEO of HqO. “Real estate not only needs to be more flexible to meet the needs of end-users, but it must also connect with them through experience, putting the customer and their experiences of space at the center. We are so proud to partner with the Commercial Observer to recognize the distinguished owners, operators, and occupiers alike who are taking the lead in this critical market transformation.”
