Office Space vs. WFH? Prepare Your Office for Post-COVID
Many companies are wondering if and how their workplaces should be adapted to the new “working from home” (WFH) reality. After all:
- How many colleagues will return to the office when COVID-19 crisis is over or the 6-foot rule is lifted?
- What should the office offer above all? A quiet workplace, a meeting place or a mix of these?
- What impact does this have on the size – and therefore costs – of your office?
To help answer these questions and more, Solved developed a workplace survey using their years of experience and insight into the current pandemic situation. The results provide insight into the extent to which the work, company culture, and employees’ home office arrangements allow them to work from home — and what this means for the office. It shows the average and a number of striking cases.
Their approach to the results provided in the linked whitepaper is mainly to come up with a practical translation:
- What is the impact at the office?
- Can we get rid of workplaces, and what do we do with the space that is freed up?
- Is a consultation with the landlord necessary?
- How do we adjust the floor plan?
- How can you save costs on your accommodation?
Exis global partners help companies with these follow-up steps – not only giving advice, but helping to implement it. In this way, the knowledge of such a tool, among other things, is retained until the end result.
