The global shift to telework, enhanced by the Covid-19 crisis, cannot be unseen. Surveys tell us that employees will want to work more from home in this new normal and combine it with days in the office. The reason to have an office still remains the same: to bring people together around a shared purpose and cooperative work. So it makes sense to use a people-centric approach in planning the return to the office. These upcoming workplace transformations should improve flexibility, social connection and user experience.
As your strategy evolves, make sure it is informed by data. Using technology, like Tribeloo to collect and analyse data on how people are actually using the workplace to make a building perform better for people.
Whatever the strategy, also strive to engage early and over-communicate. Share the guidelines and the reasons behind them in a transparent way on the Tribeloo newsfeed to keep people up to date and understand what is going on.
