“Our team has been working closely with ABSL since its inception. Over the last ten years we have had a chance to observe how much the business service sector and the profile of employees of companies in this sector have changed and how much they influence the office market in Poland. Today, business service centers can have employees from four generations, all characterized by different attitudes towards modern technologies, new work models and the way office space is designed. And we already know that the office is one of the strategic elements influencing the brand image and contributing to employee satisfaction. We are glad that we will be able to support ABSL along with member companies in this area for another year,” said Anna Młyniec, Head of Office Agency and Tenant Representation, JLL.
“The mission of ABSL is to develop the potential of the modern business services sector and create conditions for its continuous growth throughout Poland. Our goal is to build a competitive and sustainable economy, supporting the development of both business and investments. In such implementations we are accompanied by JLL, a leading real estate consulting agency. The industry is developing rapidly, all thanks to the involvement of our strategic partners, such as JLL. Together we are able to define the challenges facing the market and try to meet them by offering innovative solutions. Furthermore, it is also worth noting that thanks to JLL, companies from the business services sector, which face the necessity of leasing office space and locating a team, are able to receive reliable data and analyses related to the design of working environments,” said Marcin Nowak, President of the Board, ABSL.
