The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Middle East Council of Offices (MECO) will share the findings of their Middle East Office Productivity Survey at two events in the UAE.

The seminars, which will take place in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in May, will address various issues related to workplace design in the Middle East.

Topics on the agenda will include whether or not open plan offices increase productivity, the flexibility of workplaces in the region, and the biggest environmental issue affecting workers.

Speakers at the events will include Nottingham Trent University’s Professor Nick Nunnington and MECO’s Christopher Seymour.

Commenting on the aims of the Middle East Office Productivity Survey, Professor Nunnington said: “The output of this landmark study will answer the question of how the physical environment affects the productivity of workers, identify the opportunities to improve the return on investment in corporate real estate, and act as a valuable tool to guide future office design.

“Published by RICS in conjunction with MECO, the report will consider corporate real estate as a business enabler and will have widespread appeal to practitioners across the industry,” he added.

The Abu Dhabi and Dubai events will take place on 11 May, 2016 and 12 May, 2016, respectively. For further information, contact Lynne Fraser, marketing and communications manager at RICS.
