As workplaces around the world are slowly beginning to re-open in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, there are measures that need to be implemented before anyone is able to take their seats. One of the major aspects is social distancing; as space is at a premium in many offices, a rethink on how it's used will be required for businesses to operate safely.
By using intelligent office refurbishment methods, any business can get the most from their current space; creating a safe and functional environment for employees to work in. In this blog, we're going to cover some of the benefits that can be experienced by refurbishing the current office space; both in the short and long-term.
The benefits of an office refurbishment in a post-COVIDworkplace.
Offers the best balance between office and home working.
There's no doubt that COVID has changed the way we work; but it's also changed how we will view 'the workplace' in the future. Despite the vast majority of us having been working remotely for months, growing used to the practice, it's unlikely that we will give up on the idea of going to an (external) office altogether.
Whether it's for better connectivity,inclusion amongst colleagues or for a separation of our home-work life, there are many benefits that a centralised office has on the home one. The structure and community of the office is a particular aspect that many home workers have been missing out on; whilst working from home may help with some things,there's undoubtedly plenty of other aspects that make a centralised office worth having around.
As such, employers should treat the returnto work as an opportunity to combine the best of both worlds through an office refurbishment; the comforts andconvenience provided by the home, with optimal connectivity and community ofthe central office.
