Office revival: 4 aspects to consider
Going back to office
Life in the offices is gradually starting. Colleagues meet again for coffee, or bump into each other in common areas, chill out zones and during lunch breaks. Meeting rooms awaken, causing information to spread faster and work being done more efficiently.
However, home offices are still relevant, therefore it is necessary to keep both work location fully equipped. Avoiding the unnecessary transportation and carrying the ''whole table'' back and forth. To make your employees glad to return to the office buildings and have everything they need during the work day, read through our overview.
1. Renew your office supplies
You will often find out that you are desperately missing something for your work only when you are in the biggest hurry, when you can't find it, or you are disturbed by the lack of it. The shortage of coffee or tea in the kitchen is for sure not happy news, but somehow a negligible problem compared to dead batteries in your PC mouse, dried toner, zero office paper in your printer, or a missing USB key. It is such outages of consumer goods that can disrupt an otherwise smooth work day, increase your heart rate and cause delays in your deadlines.
If you have returned to your desk after a long time, you may be surprised by the safety upgrades. Dispensers for disinfection, plexi- glass panels dividing the workstations or even a little "stay safe" present from your employer in form of antibacterial gel and respirator.
Welcome back at your desk!
In addition to the most important things like a chair and monitor, restock your stationery, a notebook, a lost headset and webcam, a docking station and a PC mouse. To complete the comfort and a smooth transition to off-line work environment, check the level of paper and toner in the printer, the expiration date of refreshments in the kitchen and at the same time sufficiency of hygienic products throughout the entire office building. Don't forget the little things that go without saying: toilet papers, kitchen towels, disinfectants, antibacterial wipes, hand creams.
Special attention should be paid at this time to objects that are touched daily by multiple people, such as the dishwashing liquid and sponge, or common small office supplies.
