The Ultimate Guide: Workspaces During COVID-19

Sep 24, 2020

Covid-19 office safety

The world, as we once knew it, has changed dramatically since the inception of COVID-19. And in many ways, that change is most evident in the workplace. The pandemic has forced the adoption of new ways of working, and many organizations have adapted — acting swiftly to safeguard employees and mitigate risks where possible. As we continue to evaluate the safety and well-being of employees in the workplace, it’s more important than ever for businesses to remain open to change. Here’s why.

 

Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe workspace. 

Though open concept spaces provide a progressive and modern layout, it can be difficult to take social distancing measures with the design. However, shifting your company’s floor organization can have a profound impact on workplace safety. Employees with families may have anxiety about being around other people in the workplace, and this type of adjustment may help them to feel more at ease. 

With a redesigned workspace, employers can offer an environment that affords distance between team members while still promoting collaborative in-office interactions. Physical barriers like cubicles and modular walls are a great way to provide space between employees — allowing for physical safety and peace of mind.

Employees will soon be returning to the office. 

While remote work may be ideal for some businesses, it’s more difficult for others. As employees return to work, you hope and expect for them to be productive. Consider how your office space can encourage, promote, or hinder collaboration and productivity.

It’s important to consider all of the ways in which employees may be distracted from their work by the lingering concerns that come with a global pandemic. And a key component of productivity is the ability to feel safe. When employees understand your commitment to their overall health and well-being, they will be less likely to fear returning to the office. 

 

 

Employees want to work for organizations that care about creating the best work environment. 

As an employer, are you offering the best workspace to recruit and retain top talent? Potential candidates consider many things when choosing a new role or career path. Beyond requisites like work-life balance, employee engagement, a sense of purpose, and flexibility, employees are also interested in working in a well-designed, versatile work environment. 

The overall aesthetic of your space can contribute to productivity and morale just as much as the team dynamic, and it could be an important factor in an employee’s desire to join — and return — to the office.
