The shock of quarantine has already passed, business and employees have managed to evaluate the pros and cons of remote work and come to the conclusion that a return to the offices is inevitable.
One recent large-scale study by Morning Consult on behalf of The New York Times found that the majority of employees, 45%, want to work full-time in the office. 31% of those surveyed said they want to work remotely full-time and 24% chose the hybrid option.
Experts emphasize that in order to maintain business efficiency, managers cannot leave only the remote format, it is necessary to ensure the return of the team to the office.
This issue is especially acute for employees who do not have the conditions for an ideal home office and those who need face-to-face communication to be successful.
The tasks brought by COVID 19 have not left the agenda – management must ensure work in the conditions of quarantine uncertainty.
Each owner must find answers to many difficult questions. Is vaccination required to return to the office? How often to monitor the condition of employees who are in the office? How and where to provide regular testing for Covid for those who are not vaccinated (for various reasons), regardless of whether they work from home or in the office?
All these challenges must be taken into account when adapting office spaces.
