Corees Polska and The Instant Group join forces

1st July, 2021, Warsaw, Poland: Poland’s leading commercial real estate advisory specialist, Corees Polska has joined together with international flexible workspace expert, The Instant Group. The newly formed partnership will provide strategic real estate advice to organisations that enable them to achieve lease and licence agility within their real estate portfolios.

With 69% of companies stating that workspace design will need to change to reflect the new purpose of the office in a post-pandemic world*, the new partnership will consultancy through real estate portfolios of all sizes; from individual office assets through to portfolio wide transformations both domestically and internationally.

The partnership comes as over 80% of corporate real estate and business executives expect to see a fundamental change occurring in their workspace strategy over the next 36 months to adapt to the new reality. In a recent survey conducted by Corees Polska and Antal**, 56% of employers plan to maintain the current use
of office space, and 77% of employers said that although the hybrid model is not an ideal solution, it will have a place in their companies in 2021, showing a visible shift in real estate requirements.

Together, Corees Polska and The Instant Group will offer expert advice to corporate clients on future workspace strategy, looking after the real estate interests
in what is typically the third largest cost item of any business.

As the world’s largest aggregator platform of flexible space, with over 20,000 flexible office listings across the world, The Instant Group uses in-depth cost and availability data to procure cost effective workspaces and manage the property and facility operations on behalf of corporate clients. With extensive on-the-ground knowledge and local experience, Corees Polska will provide consulting and advisory services on the optimal use of real estate assets, maximising the value
of properties, and carrying out legal and technical reviews on individual properties.

 

Marek Ciunowicz, CEO, Corees Polska Commercial comments: “The situation in the commercial real estate market is totally dependent on global conditions, which determine the overall market situation – both in terms of its growth and stagnation. Change is ahead of us and it’s centred around a people-first approach.
People are at the core of every business and we recognise that it’s the employees that have the power to create effective businesses.

“By joining together with The Instant Group, our current and future clients will benefit from a more in depth real estate experience, enabling them to make more informed decisions about their workplace solutions that are centred around their people. We are excited about the broad scope of possibilities we can now offer
in the Polish market.”

 

John Duckworth, Executive Director, The Instant Group comments: “We are at a crossroads, accelerated by the COVID 19 pandemic, where key shifts are shaping the future of workspace across the world. The operational reality for business today is defined by volatility and uncertainty and the rise of flexible solutions
is a consequence of this demand side shift. Modern businesses already demand agility from people, technology and finance – and now, more than ever, business leaders are looking for agility in their approach to workspace to enable them to achieve new ways of working and move forward.

“The market needs to come up with more alternatives and creative workplace environments. This is not just about collaboration (though that is key) it is about
task-orientated activity that makes the workplace function better which is why we’re excited to be working with Corees to create a truly unique and differential real estate service in Poland.”
