CBRE announced a new mobile application called Host Connect, which supports employees and employers, as well as landlords and tenants as they gradually return to the office as government stay-at-home restrictions begin to lift across the country.
Host Connect offers features that help companies and building owners support a connected, safe and healthy workplace with key features such as re-entry readiness checks. Companies can use it to enable their go back to work strategy.
For example, Host Connect gives users easy access to their office or building with touchless entry, eliminating the need for a physical badge or key.
To enable social distancing, occupancy tracking tools offer employers and building owners data on how many individuals have entered their workplace or property.
Other features include registration and attendance for virtual events; curated content and perks; and news, podcasts and other materials about maintaining normalcy during a public health crisis, such as tips for stress reduction when working from home.
“This ongoing crisis has placed even greater importance on fast and efficient communications, and facilitating virtual, touchless interactions,” said Alex Andel, Global Lead of CBRE Host. “Host Connect was initially created for CBRE to communicate efficiently with our own employees across hundreds of locations, and help manage the careful transition back to the workplace.”
Host Connect is based on CBRE’s proprietary Host platform, which enables critical “Return to Work” functionality that employers and building owners can deploy for a single location/building or for an entire portfolio of locations/properties.
