Open plan, space saving desks, hot-desking and workstations have been fashionable in offices for many years. Employers have provided fun areas including slides and snooker tables, bar areas and fully fitted, and stocked, kitchens. With an imminent return to work, will the homeworkers expect a change in their new work environments?
More than likely; primarily for their safety and wellbeing.
Since the UK Government announcement on Sunday, many businesses have been looking at ways to create a safe and efficient return to work, whilst trying to understand how that will look and when it might happen.
Suggestions for one-way systems, dividers and plexi-glass between workstations may be inevitable. Apps and thermal tracking technology to track the wellness of staff are being considered by some blue-chip companies, with cleaning and hand sanitisers being installed and deep cleans taking place as a minimum in the commercial office environment.
