Return to Work(place)
Like most of you, we all left our workplace in March, uncertain when we could return.
We’re coping with new ways of working at home, new coworkers—like dogs, spouses, kids, and cats—while trying to stay connected with our teams. Physical distancing norms, health, and safety concerns are an elevated state. How will we find a balance between personal interaction, virtual collaboration, and well-being when we return to the workplace?
Navigating the New Normal
Organizations are seeking to understand what short- and long-term workplace changes to implement—from facility needs, to work rotation and the sequenced return of the workforce. We have identified three critical areas of focus to help you navigate a return to the workplace in a COVID-19 environment:
Supporting people’s physical and psychological health to build confidence and enhance performance
Understanding and preserving your culture to empower your workforce and leverage your space in new ways
Transforming the Floorplate
Addressing facility requirements, density, and exposure while mitigating risk
From Floorplate to Workpoint
Organic Workspace is our perspective and process for understanding the work environment and how people use it. Leveraging our global knowledge, unique design point of view, and product expertise, we have developed best practices to help you balance the needs of your people and space as we navigate returning to the workplace. We start by looking at the entire floorplate—where interaction and collaboration take place—right down to the individual work point.
