COVID-19 Tech for Workspaces and Conference Rooms
Preparing the Office for Workplace Re-Entry
COVID-19 forced many organizations to transition to remote work. This may be a suitable interim solution, but many jobs require being on-site, and there are certain benefits to the office that you can't replicate remotely. In fact, according to a 2020 survey released by Gensler, people still prefer the office when given the choice of where to work.
While your home might be the go-to place for deep-focus work, the office is still the best place to meet, collaborate, and interact with coworkers. However, we can't expect employees to return to the workplace until we make the necessary changes to make them feel safe. The following technology systems help create an environment that promotes health and wellness so you can begin transitioning back into the office.
