Offices may never look the same in the post COVID-19 era. Open offices may be a thing of the past, as social distancing is expected to last in some form through 2021. While many office workers will delight in the demise of the open floorplan, that means businesses are left to redesign their office spaces. In some cases, this will be essential to their ability to reopen and serve their customers.
The professional office movers at Apex Moving & Storage can help. We have moved hundreds of companies throughout Washington State, and we are in tune with what the business community needs, including safety procedures. During this pandemic, we have been keeping abreast of the latest office design guidelines, and we are ready to help you reconfigure your office or commercial building so your employees can return to work quickly and stay healthy.
Commercial Movers Ready To Help
While the vast majority of people are working from home during quarantine, office life will return. Students will return to schools and universities. Plants will reopen. Apex can help you design a plan for your office space that allows for both collaboration and distancing. We have studied government and public health regulations and social distancing protocols regarding office space, and we are poised to help devise a moving plan for you.
Following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, local health departments across the country have required employers to take steps to make employees and the public safer. Their recommendations to employers include:
- Minimize the number of employees working within arm’s length of each other.
- Cancel all large, in-person meetings and conferences. Hold them instead by video conference or conference phone call.
- For service or retail industries, ensure access for frequent handwashing, clean high-touch surfaces and provide adequate disinfectant wipes, paper towels and other hygiene products.
- Consider telecommuting options for employees.
- Consider staggering start and end times to reduce large numbers of people in the building at the same time.
- Tell employees who are sick to stay home from work. Consider a flexible sick leave policy so that employees can stay home when sick without having to visit a doctor’s office to obtain a note.
Not only will adapting to these changes preserve the health and vitality of your employees, in some cases, changing with the times will be essential to the survival of the business. Companies that can demonstrate how they meet federal, state and local guidelines may be allowed to reopen more quickly than those that haven’t implemented changes.
Customer-facing businesses will find that reconfiguring commercial and retail space will gain the public’s trust and make them feel more comfortable returning to your location.
