Seven-day weeks and half empty offices for a year after lockdown, staying sane in a tough week and why you might be surprised to find out who really owns UK retail

In this week's episode of EG's We're Still Here podcast, host Emily Wright is joined by editor Sam McClary to reflect on a tough week and tentative signs of a return to relative normality.

As lockdown continues, the duo discuss the benefits of the office as a hive environment before delving into this week's comments from CBRE's new head of technology around how a return to work might look 6-12 months post-lockdown.

From half empty offices to seven-day weeks and a potential move away from big offices, it will be infrastructure around the working week most likely to change the most dramatically, rather than the aesthetic of the office itself.

They also cover some of EG's biggest stories of the week including a piece of data that reveals just who the true owners of UK real estate are. The answer might surprise you and it provides clear evidence as to why government needs to rethink its latest measures to crackdown on landlords in favour of retailers during the current crisis.

Tune in for this and much more including some open, honest chat around the pressures and strains of the continued lockdown.
