Top occupier clients weigh in on talent migration trends

In case you missed it, Colliers’ Workforce Analytics team used recently-collected data to frame a discussion with three top occupier clients during a live virtual event on Thursday, February 25. The panel — moderated by Gregg Healy and Bret Swango — explored the talent movement taking place within U.S. markets and the implications of these shifts on key labor pools around the country (with some global influence as well, as one panelist joined from Tel Aviv and provided that perspective).

More than 300 attendees joined for a 60-minute session that could have easily unfolded into an hours-long discussion, given the nuances and multidimensionality of the topic.

Panelists Ethan Chernofsky of, Clint Kofford of Johnson & Johnson and Roger van Overbeek of Autodesk touched on everything from the concerns of the “us vs. them” mentality that could be inspired by the dichotomy of blue collar vs. white collar WFH employee groups; salary implications of suburban-bound talent moving out of higher-priced metro areas; maintaining both culture and trust in a remote work environment and more.
