it's the people

This quote from Herman Miller’s first director of design Gilbert Rhode has never been more appropriate. COVID-19 has had a profound affect on the intersection between people, place and purpose. The way we think about the workplace is rapidly transforming and will continue to evolve as we move forward. There is an astonishing amount of research and thought to digest on how we will move forward in a post COVID-19 world. Most experts agree the return to our professional life will be measured, gradual and phased as we grapple with what comes next.

Prioritize health and wellness:

  • Prevent the spread;

  • Create safety protocols;

  • Maintain your environment

Prioritize communication:

  • Listen to the concern’s employees
    may have about returning to the office;

  • learn what employees will need to feel protected in the newly occupied space;

  • Communicate and manage protocols
