READY TO GET BACK TO THE OFFICE? 

We are here to offer Post-COVID workplace design considerations to help keep you and your employees safe.

WELLBEING AT WORK

We’ve been designing workspaces to support the cognitive, physical and emotional wellbeing of workers.  Now safety is at the forefront and is foundational to your staff’s overall wellbeing, and key to a successful return to the office space.

As we enter back into the workplace, providing space that still supports the dynamics of wellbeing, while keeping your workplace safe, is paramount.

Your space needs to adapt and provide resilient business continuity.

We can help you provide safer space and help you shape behaviors.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  • Enact safety guidelines​
  • Enable safe behaviors and cleanliness protocols​
  • Create physical and psychological safety​
  • Support effective and safe human interactions

TODAY’S WORKPLACE CHALLENGES

  • Open Plan
  • High Density
  • Shared Spaces
  • High Mobility
  • Communal Spaces
  • Residential Aesthetic

These characteristics created a competitive advantage for organizations – a means to foster new work styles, build culture and attract talent. While many organizations prepared for employee safety in other ways, the workplace was not designed to mitigate the spread of disease.

Open conversations about the FAR: What does the future of our workplace look like? What permanent changes will your company be implementing? We are here to help!


THE FUTURE OF THE WORKPLACE

We know that the future is uncertain during a pandemic, but as people start to come back to the office space, it is evident that things need to change.  Our office spaces need to adapt to keep our people safe and feeling comfortable to return.  How can we adjust our spaces NOW to immediately create a safer space?  With more sciences-based research and information, we start to understand how we may need to look to adapt our spaces for the NEAR future.  And as time progresses, the “new normal” will look different.  We start to get a perspective on how are spaces will need to adapt LONG-TERM (FAR), to keep people safe and comfortable.
