James Mulhall on how COVID will change how employers manage commuting

James Mulhall, Murphy Mulhall

For companies to be able to return to the office, first they need to be able to travel there. We sat down with global real estate expert James Mulhall of Murphy Mulhall to explore how COVID has turned the world of commuter management upside down and what this means for the real estate community.

In conversation with Wayleadr’s Daithí de Buitléir, Mulhall who represents some of the world’s leading occupiers and landlords discussed:

  • The traditional attitudes of real estate professionals to commuter management.
  • How COVID is leading businesses to re-evaluate how they manage commuting facilities.
  • The long-term impact of COVID and increased work flexibility on the environment.

Short on time here’s four key super quick takeaways:

  • The importance of leveraging commuter management to get staff back to the office. Employees need confidence that they can return safely. By providing access to facilities occupiers and employers can enable their staff to travel without fear for their health & wellbeing.
  • Parking needs to change and fast. For too long certain employees have “owned” parking spaces. With greater variability of who will be in the office and when, this is going to change with a much greater emphasis on sharing mobility facilities.
  • Flexible office based working will be a key feature of the return to offices. This will free up capacity of parking spaces, shower facilities etc. to cater for greater numbers of staggered workers.
  • The success of flexible working is good news for the environment. Moving away from a hard 9-5 culture gives people the freedom to streamline their commute, ensuring they make more environmentally conscious decisions.
