Will the talent ever properly return to the office? Find out why one former BBC boss thinks not. Plus EG’s 2020 Rising Stars hit back at claims of “entitlement”
On this week’s episode of EG’s We’re Still Here podcast, host Emily Wright is joined by EG’s deputy editor and head of content Tim Burke.
The pair kick of the episode with a review of our EG Talent Special out this week. From catching up with some of our original Future Female Leaders to introducing the 5th cohort of EG Rising Stars, it is an homage to all things fresh, bright-eyed and future-focused.
Wright reveals what she thinks it takes to be considered a Rising Star in today’s real estate market highlighting the fact that, ever since EG started putting together the annual list in 2015, there has always been as much of a focus on people impacting the industry who do not have a traditional real estate background as those who do. This year is no different with an array of Rising Star finalists from the worlds of property, tech, finance, retail, sustainability and well-being.

Listeners this week are then treated to some highlights from Burke’s interview with former BBC real estate boss Chris Kane on the post-Covid workplace. Now heading up his own workplace consultancy Six Ideas after stints at NHS Property Services and Networking Housing Group, Kane reveals why he doesn’t think young people will necessarily return to the office and why the pandemic has “poured high octane fuel” on workplace trends.
