Here Parmi Lally shares some tips on how you can better prepare for the post pandemic workplace. • Re-arrange the desk layout to ensure a 6ft gap (at least) between workstations • Small meeting rooms could become temporary individual offices • Larger meeting rooms could be used as hot desk rooms • Ask staff to gauge who would like to continue working remotely, and action on the back of a potential partial return to the office. Make plans for a potential long-term work from home initiative. • Implement floor markings and transparent shields to ensure social distancing • Implement temperature checks on staff when they enter the building • Provide face masks for staff to use during their commute to and from the office • Provide hand sanitiser in communal areas, such as next to printers, and in kitchens • Hold an online team building event just before the planned return for the wellbeing of staff • Review communication infrastructure on an ongoing basis and be proactive in addressing any issues • Above all, maintain regular communication across the team. It’s important in this uncertain time to ensure a strong platform for the business moving forwards.
