Ever since the pandemic appeared, business leaders worldwide have been figuring out how to safely guide people back to the office. The fear of having too many people in a building that can't keep enough distance has kept many of us awake. So how can you coordinate this in a safe and easy way?
To guide you through the challenge of reopening your office doors, we collected the best practices for you to learn from. Experts, customers, data scientists and workplace strategists shared their experience.
Mapiq’s Office Shifts enables large organizations to reopen their offices again, by coordinating who can come in when, and where. You stay flexible and minimize manual work while welcoming people back in. And when regulations change, you can easily adjust your approach.
Nothing is currently more important than the safety of your employees. The key to ensuring your employees’ safety is to guarantee workplaces on a safe distance from each other. In most cases, the required distancing recommended for workplace safety is at least 1.5 meters.
When certain days per week are assigned to work in the office, employees may lose their freedom and sense of autonomy. Especially now that it is harder to check in with one another, this can negatively impact your employees’ well-being.
Collaboration and the ability to fuel creativity is crucial for businesses to be successful. Employees spend a lot of time working remotely. Thereby, they come to the office individually, without knowing if anyone will be there.
Neither you or your employees want to complete loads of paperwork and manage endless Excel files to allow people back in. As schedules can change frequently, manual processes quickly become a time-consuming and cumbersome way to manage your office capacity.
To stay on top of the game, Mapiq provides you access to your own analytics dashboard. By analyzing booking behavior, you can evaluate your back to the office strategy. If anything should change, you have the data to base the your decisions on right here.
If you're looking for a solution that truly brings your teams back in the game, you need to look further than just a desk reservation tool. COVID-19 gave you the opportunity to rethink your workplace strategy. And to get your people back in, you have to grab that chance.
Mapiq is more than just a booking-app. It's the beginning of the next chapter of work. While safely guiding your employees back to the office, we offer the best workplace experience possible. And by analyzing booking behavior and occupancy rates, you stay on top of employee needs for a future-proof workplace strategy.

The global influence of hybrid working is inevitable. As more employees work from home, the question of how to use a physical office space becomes crucial. It is essential to have a solution that organizes who is coming to the office, when they are coming, and where they can work. Desk booking is that solution.
