Although we’re still in the throes of COVID-19, business managers are naturally wondering what’ll happen when things return to normal. Or at least, back to a new normal. The latest research from Gartner shows at least 41% of employees will continue to work remotely at least part of the time after workplaces reopen.
This presents a unique challenge to Facility Managers and Space Planners. We’re facing a different type of workplace environment, one where physical floor plans and furniture layouts haven’t changed, but our need for social distancing has. A conference room that could hold 20 people now must be used as an enclosed workspace for three or four employees. Planners need a new way of managing these occupancy restrictions and new solutions that allow everyone to prepare for a new return-to-office paradigm.
Introducing: Space On The Go! Mobile App
