Return of Employees: How to Prepare Your Office

​A lot of people have spent the last year working from home. While the allure of taking meetings in your slippers or being able to snuggle with your dog between tasks was at first exciting, many employees are looking forward to the social, interactive, and productivity benefits of working in an office again.

With increasing access to vaccines, an in-person workforce may be possible sooner rather than later, and it’s important that offices are ready for the realities of a post-Covid world.

Whether your employees are working in the office full-time or just a few days a week, here are three ways to ensure a smooth return of employees back into the shared workspace:

1. Return of Employees: Set Clear Expectations

This is an awkward and unprecedented time for everyone. The more that you have specific guidelines for the return of employees, the more comfortable your employees will feel coming back to the office. For example, if you are going to be checking employee temperatures or spacing out work desks, let everyone know ahead of time. If there will be rules around shared snacks or a limit on how many people can congregate in shared spaces, it’s best that these expectations are explicitly communicated.

2. Return of Employees: Stock the Necessities

While a “well-stocked” office used to refer to a refrigerator full of flavored beverages, the new priority with the return of employees is a healthy supply of items that will make employees feel safe, including face masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes. It’s a good idea to keep a basket of these items in each conference room, on the sink in the bathrooms, and at the front desk.

3. Return of Employees: Keep It Clean

With employees more conscious than ever about cleanliness, it’s vital to have a great cleaning crew that regularly sanitizes and disinfects your spaces. A high-quality professional cleaning company, like Nashville BHS, ensures that your office space is spotlessly clean for all employees.

Whenever you choose to reopen your office space and invite the return of employees, you want your employees to feel safe. By setting clear expectations, stocking the necessities, and keeping your space immaculately clean, employees will welcome the return to office life. Learn more about our Covid-19 policies here!
