The COVID-19 pandemic has and will continue to radically shift the workplace. An increasing percentage of the workforce desires flexible working options and, as such, firms are likely to require less office space going forward. Additionally, the economic downturn caused by the pandemic provides an opportunity for companies to secure favorable rent rates on new lease agreements. This project aims to evaluate and measure Company X’s potential cost savings from terminating current leases and downsizing office space in five selected cities. Along with city-specific real estate market research and forecasts, we employ a four-stage model of Company X’s real estate negotiation process to analyze whether existing lease agreements in these cities should be renewed or terminated.

A Virtual Frontier: the Analysis of a New Workforce Entering an Unprecedented Business Landscape

Description

This thesis intends to explore the virtual working environment that this country’s future workforce will encounter, with an emphasis on my experience as a Procurement Financial Analyst Intern at Boeing

This thesis intends to explore the virtual working environment that this country’s future workforce will encounter, with an emphasis on my experience as a Procurement Financial Analyst Intern at Boeing this past summer. The events that have unfolded this year, due to the global reach of the novel CoronaVirus pandemic, have led to an unprecedented change in the way in which a majority of America’s corporations have been forced to operate. Businesses have told their employees to stay home and this has dramatically changed the workforce’s paradigm. The uncertainty of the duration of this new paradigm affects everyone from top-level management in decision making, to global recruitment teams, to college students searching for their first jobs in a worldwide market downturn.

COVID-19 brought so much uncertainty into the world and has molded this project into what it is today. The first project journey that was chosen was meant to show the impact of how much plastic waste was being produced at Starbucks. Then due to COVID-19 yet again, it changed into how much paper waste there was within the State of Washington Department of Licensing (DOL) Business and Professions Division (BPD). DOL BPD is a state agency division that licenses over forty plus professional and business licenses to the residents of Washington state. Due to the pandemic, the project transformed into how the three pillars of sustainability impacts remote work within BPD. BPD is in this new and unique paradigm where the deliverable that was brought forth as this project completed are, “The 9 Benefits of Sustainability through Remote Work” (Appendix D) where this specifically showed DOL why remote work is sustainable and how it should be implemented even further throughout the agency. This list was put together with the benefits that best fit DOL BPD.
