The Future of the Workplace

What does the future office look like, what kind of changes can we expect to see?  We have explored this a lot over the past few weeks, not only as an office furniture manufacturer but as people sharing the same concerns and thoughts as everyone.

The need for protective measures has never been so great, in recent days we have seen many companies racing to get orders in to meet compliance standards.  We know this complex issue, as we are implementing these same practices in our facilities.

When the workforce begins returning there will be many changes and there is no time to waste in getting solutions to accommodate this new era.

  • Social distancing will be enforced/encouraged/expected (studies show well into 2022).
  • High-density offices will phase out, as the demand increases for personal space.
  • Higher demand for non-porous materials in high-touch areas, that can be cleaned/sanitized numerous times a day (glass/metal/laminate).
  • Conference tables and collaboration areas accomodating fewer people.
  • Open plans/concepts will need to have additional screens and dividers to ensure space.
  • Working from home will increase as fewer and fewer people are required to be “in-office” enabling more room to accommodate the workers needing to be in the office regularly.
  • Hoteling, “hot desks”, coworking spaces and/or temporary seating will lose popularity as the fear of contagions holds increased relevancy.

 


Recently our CEO Gregory Schneider spent some time with Smart Business Magazine's Publisher, Dustin Klein, and discussed Managing Through Uncertainty.
