Creating a Destination Workplace: Technology

We’ve come a long way technologically in the last decade, with many new technologies being introduced that only a few years ago felt like they’d been plucked straight from a sci-fi film. The global Covid-19 pandemic has taken this technological revolution to a new level, with many businesses being forced to fast-track new products, features and technology to help customers navigate the post-Covid world.

Creating a Destination Workplace: Wellness

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the health and wellbeing of the workforce is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. 6 months of working from home, without a commute and with the ability to spend more time with family and friends, have moved the goalposts when it comes to a work-life balance, and employee wellbeing is more important than ever. For others, months of working from home may have had a detrimental impact on mental health.

When the time comes, one simple way to encourage your team to make the move back to the office is by showing that they are cared for and safe at work. Investing in the wellbeing, both physical and mental, of your staff will make the transition back to the workplace much more smooth, and may help alleviate stress if they know they will be looked after at work.

Creating a Destination Workplace: Culture

After months of virtual meetings and only being able to connect with colleagues digitally, it has become apparent that although we can work from home productively, it is starting to impact the relationships built upon “real life” communication. Office working provides a vital thing that most of us working from home have missed during the pandemic: human connection and interaction. 

The current situation, with home-working set to be part of our lives for the foreseeable future, gives businesses a great opportunity to assess whether their workspace is fit for purpose in the post-Covid world, and presents an opportunity to implement meaningful long-term change if necessary.

Creating a Destination Workplace: Sustainability

Sustainability is already a hot topic in the workplace, but in the post-Covid world it will play a more important role than ever before. The global lockdown had an unexpected silver lining by dramatically improving global air and water quality and bringing our relationship with the environment to the front of our minds. After months of the associated sustainability benefits of home-working due to Covid-19, some employees may feel that a return to the office may hinder their environmental goals, but knowing that their employer’s doing their bit for the environment may be a driver in encouraging employees back to the workplace.

Creating a Destination Workplace: Experience

It has been over 6 months since the majority of the UK workforce transitioned to working from home, but we now have a prime opportunity to plan our eventual return to the office and champion meaningful changes to the workplace experience that are sustainable and long term.

We spend 8-10 hours per day at work, so if we want to get the best out of our people, we need to provide a productive, comfortable and enjoyable environment to encourage staff to head into the office. With some kind of home-working set to be part of our lives until at least the beginning of 2021, now is the opportune time to start thinking about what  long term positive impact you can make to the office environment and to start putting those changes into place. We now know we can work from home effectively and productively, so in order to entice the workforce back into the office, businesses will need to offer a destination where their team will actually want to be.
