The COVID-19 pandemic crisis changed the world forever. This virus has altered our personal lives, travel plans, and work habits. The time to return to work is nearing, and many companies are worried which are the right measures to accommodate their working environment. Olympia can assist your organization with office social distancing, changes, and essential services for opening your offices and physical locations again.
Relocate Employee Workstations, Contents, and Computers To Right-Size Your Business
To respect social distancing norms in your company when people come back to work, we can re-arrange the equipment your workers use. For instance, workstations or computers should be placed at a more significant distance from each other, as well as other furniture in your office. We will help you move each workspace to a minimum six-foot distance apart. Many companies are also planning to stagger desks to achieve distancing. The goal is to properly space employees in the workplace.
You may also want to re-configure common spaces in your workplace. Kitchens, conference rooms, and lounges may need furniture rearranged or removed to create more space between employees. Arrangement in warehouses, labs, and other workplaces may also require changes to meet these new needs.
Install High Panels at Existing Cubicles
Many companies utilize cubicles to separate workers. While this might be an efficient measure, you will have to consider the size of your cubicle panels. A taller or larger panel will create a stronger barrier between employees and minimize risks.
Our professional installation team can help you keep the existing floor plan of your office by installing high panels to the existing framework of your cubicles. This addition division of space will create more confidence and minimize health risks in your office.
Re-Configure Office Furniture to Fit Social Distancing Needs
Your office set up may completely change when right-sizing. Some companies might need to invest in smaller furniture that allows more space for distancing. Other offices might be able to just rearrange the office settlement with minimum investment. Olympia can help assist with both these scenarios by disassembling and reassembling workstations. Along with old workstations, you may also need to liquidate miscellaneous furniture, file cabinets, and more to create space to distance desks. Regardless of your needs, Olympia can help you develop a strategy according to your situation. As we assist you with the reconfiguration of your office furniture, we will consider not only the new social distancing norms, but also the comfort of your employees and your budget.
Temporary Storage for Office Furniture Not Needed During Right-Sizing
During the reconfiguration phase, you might end up with some excess furniture. We have to consider that this phase may not be a permanent one. If you are planning for full restoration to your previous office set up down the line, our warehouses can pack and store excess furniture for the interim. This will help to create space and alleviate any clutter right now, and allow your company to return to a productive workplace sooner.
Delivering Content, Computers, and Furniture to Home Offices
Some offices are opening their doors while some are extending their work from home policies. We are seeing a progression of more companies implementing a work from home option as a new standard business practice.
Overall limiting the size of people in your office is recommended as office distancing will remain relevant, whether the new schedule it is a time split between in-office and at-home work, or a full push to remote, your employees must have the adequate equipment furniture and resources to effectively perform from their new remote work stations.
