EG People


As part of our EG People programme for 2018 we will be providing the ideal platform for people who make strategic ‘people’ decisions, to share best practice on how we tackle some of the biggest issues around skills and talent; in an increasingly competitive industry.

The EG People - Workplace of Tomorrow is your opportunity to hear from your peers about the measures they are taking in order to successfully attract the talent that will add the most value to their businesses, both now and in the future.

EG People The Workplace of Tomorrow

How to get a job and keep it in the age of automation

As university students settle into their real estate careers the property world is being transformed by technology, with around 90% of the core tasks that surveyors currently train for being altered.

Will this spell the death of the agent? No. But will it mean they will need to perform some roles with a greater deal of emphasis in order to advance their careers?

In this tech panel discussion at Oxford Brookes University in November 2017, in partnership with CBRE and KPMG and presented by EG, experts discuss what those roles are and how to sharpen your skills in an era of automation to secure your job.

Plus find out the shape of things to come for the rest of the built environment.
