In the war for talent, real estate is your key weapon.

​Competition for talent is a major challenge in markets around the world, as demand continues to outpace supply. Although the arms race to provide employee amenities garners the most media attention, corporate real estate leaders are also rethinking location, physical environment and key programs. With four generations now in the workforce, there has never been greater expectations of a company’s physical environment, workplace services and amenities.

JLL has been tackling these challenges for years. By blending research from areas such as workplace mobility, green building design, social networks, location optimization and employee services, we developed a framework to take a comprehensive view of a corporate real estate department’s impact on talent attraction, retention, productivity and engagement (TARPE).

Using the TARPE framework, our consultants help clients answer key questions, such as:

  • What real estate and facilities programs matter in the war for talent?
  • What are competitor companies doing in this area?
  • How do you compare to these companies?

Real Value. Delivered.

JLL works with clients to generate a pool of relevant data, including customer satisfaction, service provisioning and costs. We also make direct comparisons of our clients’ real estate offerings to those of other companies in target geographies, outlining whether they are in a leading or lagging position, and make detailed recommendations for improvement.
