Nearly two-thirds of office occupiers in Bulgatia’s capital Sofia expect that the coronavirus pandemic will have a negative impact on their business, real estate consultancy MBL said. As many as 19% experience no noticeable effects caused by the coronavirus, 7% hold a pessimistic view on both short and long term outcome, while 11% see the pandemic as a chance to grow, MBL said in a statement on Wednesday, citing the results of a recent survey conducted among a hundred office occupiers in Sofia. “The majority (42%) of occupiers do not plan any changes in terms of headcount while 30% are still unsure whether they will increase their numbers or a shrinkage will be required,” MBL also said. According to MBL, one-fifth of the tenants give a negative feedback regarding their headcount projections, while only 9% plan to grow the number of their employees in the future. The survey showed that the office of the future will be more flexible, with 57% of workstations situated in a conventional office and one-third of employees working from home, MBL added.
