Office Furniture Warehouse Explores How We Can Return to Work Safely

Marley Lentz, Office Furniture Warehouse

The necessity and sensibility behind businesses closing makes it no less burdensome. As lockdowns around the country are simultaneously protested and adhered to, extended and expiring, we’re looking toward the future at a question that’s on many people’s minds: “How will we return to work post-COVID-19 safely?”

We believe it’s prudent to address how businesses can leverage work environments to keep employees healthy and prevent future pandemics as the paradigm of post-COVID-19 offices evolves. We don’t have all the answers, and every component of this conundrum is dynamic. So, in addition to offering you what resources we have at our disposal right now at Office Furniture Warehouse, we want to open a dialogue about what it will take to return to work safely. Our Return to Work Summit explores expert perspectives surrounding the built environment to strategize how we can reoccupy as safely as possible.


RETURN TO WORK SUMMIT

PART 1: Michael Walton and Steve Hunt share their expertise on how the built environment will evolve in response to the pandemic, what to expect upon return and the importance of seeing it through together.

 

PART 2: T.W. Francescon and Jim Exum lean in with perspectives from HR and legal, how their companies are responding to the pandemic, the importance of communication and predictions for policy.

 

PART 3: Rae Bond and Amanda McKenney impart wisdom from the arenas of health care and industrial hygiene for businesses strategizing the safest possible return to work.

 


WORKSPACE MISSION

We hope this is useful to strategizing your safe re-occupancy of physical work environments. 

Our mission is to make your workspace work as hard as you do and, during this unprecedented time, we’re trying to make sure that best reflects how work will inevitably evolve in response to the pandemic. Returning to work? We feel that our partners should be confident in our response, as well as take advantage of opportunities to boost immunity and resilience in the physical workplace. Remaining remote? Consider these 3 musts for your home office and our resources for the rise of the remote worker

Need a partner to walk you through the process? Help come up with the process? Tie up loose ends on your process in progress? Regardless, we’ve got you covered.
