As the spread of the pandemic is beginning to show signs of slowing down, the world economy has changed drastically. Notably, it is more pressing when they prepare to reunite employees in the office. Spatial and physical distance, collaboration, and health are suddenly all becoming leading concerns.
All of these are significant issues. Every company is finding its way to the new normal and bring back its workforce safely and effectively. We know that companies need to develop and nurture employee engagement and commitment, no matter where they are because only those engaged will care about the company and do their best to achieve their goals. To come back stronger, companies should re-imagine their workplace layout, which means that they should create a workplace around employees’ needs and suit their specific roles. Thus, we lay our focus on people and prepare new spatial strategies to support organizations to attain an adaptive advantage and get ahead of the competition.
Re-organize your Office Spatial Set-up for Workplace Safety
Remote working undoubtedly became essential to business continuity, but office life – in some manner – will, too. The challenge lies in how companies can transform their existing offices into places adaptable for the post-COVID workplace.
There are FIVE strategic areas to focus on:
1. Added Spatial Effectiveness
Spatial panels are a powerful tool to meet possible specifications that require a systematic approach to estimation. Various panel combinations are available to create ample or compact spaces.
2. Free Switch between Different Working Modes
A shared space that features desk systems with desktop screens protects you at work and limits exposure from neighboring workstations. The movably mounted desk screen can be put on any side as per the requirement.
3. Invite Nature to Office
According to a 2014 Study by the University of Exeter, placing plants in the office can enhance employee’s working efficiency by 15%. The setting-up of potted plants have a positive impact on the psychology of employees. It breaks the rigid sense of environment and brings a wisp of vibrancy to it. It helps to relieve working pressure and eyesight fatigue and reboots the body system with higher working efficiency. Such movable design also enables the plants to enjoy more sunlight.
4. Partitions Promote Focus Work
High screens between people create boundaries on demand. Especially, the immersive space with upper panels offers employees a quiet individual place for focus work and brings privacy & productivity back to open-plan layouts.
5. Safe Resting
A revolutionary sofa system with partitions creates a pleasant and safe rest area for employees who still have safety concerns to relax, nap, and meditate.
