COVID-19 has proven to many businesses that most employees can be productive while working from home. Yet meeting, collaborating, and complex problem solving is still often more effective when your employees meet in real life. It doesn’t matter what your company does, what products or services it provides; face-to-face teamwork is essential to your company’s success. Smart technology and smart office integrations clear the way to a safe office reopening.
Returning to the office will give employees back the feeling of being part of the team. As a result of interacting face-to-face, a sense of community resurrects, employee happiness increases and work-life separation restores.
Seeing each other in real life and looking teammates in the eyes promotes an atmosphere that motivates your employees to go that extra mile and be supportive of one another.
Creative thinking is an essential skill in any business today. When a group of diverse individuals comes together, they tend to be more creative, compared to the same people working alone.
Personal matters or sensitive topics are often most successful when discussed face-to-face. Giving your employees the opportunity to meet in real life can help turn many challenging conversations into trust-building interactions.
With smart office technology, you support the flexible use of space and maximize utilization during and after the pandemic. As a smart offices specialist, we’re here to guide you through the three vital steps towards a safe office reopening.
Organizations are required to ensure their office design complies with the 1.5-meter social distancing rule. Based on this, our data shows that available desk occupancy will have to decrease by an average of 43%. Consequently, only about half of your employees can be in the office at the same time.
Mapiq’s Office Capacity Calculator allows you to use the space as efficiently as possible. Based on the floorplan of your office and the location of the desks, the calculator determines your optimum office capacity. From this you can see precisely how many workplaces are safe to use for your employees. Our Office Shifts functionality then helps guide your employees to the available space.
Once your safe office capacity is calculated, Office Shifts allows you to fairly and safely distribute when employees can work in the office. This web application easily coordinates when groups of employees may be in the office and where it's safe for them to be seated. Simply let employees match their workdays in the office with team members.
Once the exact office and floor capacity is calculated, Office Shifts allows you to fairly and safely distribute when employees can work in the office. This web application easily coordinates when groups of employees may be in the office and where it's safe for them to be seated. Simply let employees match their workdays in the office with team members.
Once your office capacity is determined and you have coordinated who can come to the office, it is crucial to spread employees evenly over your available space. To ensure social distancing in multi-level buildings, it's best to spread employees evenly over the different floors.
Our narrowcasting solution visualizes the exact crowdedness on any level. Mapiq’s Building Occupancy Display specifically indicates how occupancy levels on the floor allow for the required social distancing rules. You can place Mapiq’s Building Occupancy Display at the entrance of the office to enable employees to find the safest workplace on arrival without wandering around.
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.
