As offices reopen, health and wellness strategies will become a crucial part of design and operations
Never before has implementing strategies to benefit occupants’ mental health and physical well-being been more critical than now. Will this place make me sick? That will be the question on the minds of anxious occupants as they begin returning to your facility. It will be up to you, the fearless facility manager, to allay those fears. Health and wellness strategies will be inextricably linked to the new normal of office design and operations. The new normal of the immediate future of social distancing, more-frequent cleaning, and limiting exposure to high touch surfaces will be crucially important as occupants return to the work place.
Much of the new normal, both in the immediate future and in terms of long-term shifts in office strategy, will run counter to how things have always been done. In this new reality, proper cleaning will have a great impact on businesses, facilities, schools, consumers, and individuals more than ever before. According to a survey by GP PRO, 73% of employees are concerned about an outbreak in their office. This translate to almost 3 out of 4 people in the building being worried about the person next to them. Cleaning is essential to promote confidence in a return to operations and provide a safe and healthy environment for us all. Whether cleaning plans are executed in-house or with contractors, they should be integrated and transparent.
