Shortly - and one hopes it’ll be very shortly! – employers will be welcoming hundreds of thousands of employees back to work across the world. Depending on what each company’s back to work policy is, it’s likely that not all employees might work out of designated workspaces in the office. As well, it may even be that some employees opt for a gradual transition – working few days on-premises, and a few days off-site.
The challenge for line managers and facility administrators is: How to keep track of these transition plans to make back to work effective and efficient? The answer: Use transition back to the office software.
As employers strategize their back to office approaches, they’ll have a myriad of choices to make regarding how to go about easing into the transition. Obviously, returning employees will still need to maintain social distancing in the workplace. So, how will managers enforce that? And then, there’ll likely be need to shut down parts of the workplace for regular (and more frequent!) cleansing and decontamination. So that too will impact transition planning.
Most importantly, because working from home is likely to still be in vogue, how do facilities managers make use of unused (or temporarily vacant) desks, cubicles and workstations. Clearly, there’s no one-size fits all solution to transition planning. With so many moving parts to the puzzle, office administrators need highly flexible workplace software to aid them.
