In February 2021, The Boulos Company released the results of the “Where’s Maine Working” survey – which detailed the impacts of COVID-19 on Maine’s Commercial Office Market.
The factors that impact the market now include staggered office-reopening plans, a tightening labor market, and a full spectrum of hybrid work plans incorporating both office and remote work.
As Maine’s commercial real estate leader, we conducted the “Where’s Maine Working V.2” survey to gain additional insight into the shifting workplace landscape, and to enable Maine’s business community to make decisions on this impact, now and in the future.
The survey data is broken up into sections based on responses regarding company demographics, current work locations and office reopenings, return to work plans (WFH vs office work vs hybrid models), workplace sentiments, preferences and incentives, and office size and plans for reconfiguration.
140 professionals from across Maine participated in this survey. The respondents represented a range of company sizes and geographic markets. Most identified themselves as decision-makers regarding their office lease, as displayed in our demographics section.
Thank you all for your participation in this survey. For those who need help determining how to move forward with their workplace, please contact The Boulos Company to hear how we can assist you.
We’ll send you a concise email newsletter once per month featuring CRE market updates, and a transaction report telling you who’s buying what and who’s moving where in Maine & New Hampshire.
