Sharing our Stories
We’re all spending more time at home than ever before. Despite the uncertainty that we’re all experiencing we have also been given more time with the people we love, as well as greater opportunity to go after those ambitions that life got in the way of us pursuing.
Here at Cushman & Wakefield we’ve seen employees across Asia Pacific seize the opportunity that staying home has presented them. From green fingers in the garden to sore fingers on the guitar, morning meditation to evening workouts, we hope that you can share in our goal of making the most from being at home.
As you turn your mind to returning to your workplace, refer to our Recovery Readiness Guide to help you navigate the difficult task of returning to work in a safe and sustainable way.
