According to a study by Fierce, 86% of employees cite a lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failures. Have you personally experienced a lack of collaboration or ineffective communication while working from home? You’re not alone. Many individuals are struggling to fill the void of collaboration and communication during the COVID-19 pandemic. Collaboration fuels fast-paced innovation, increases efficiency, improves team relationships and enhances workflow.
Some of technology’s most prominent players have started to solidify their timelines for returning to the workplace, a place that fuels collaboration. Facebook will reopen offices in July but allow employees to continue working from home for the remainder of the year. Google will begin opening its offices in various cities starting July 6 but allow its employees the flexibility and choice in how they will work. Apple has reportedly asked some employees to return to work in early June to resume regular work on critical and confidential projects.
Returning to work in an era of COVID-19 requires us to reimagine the workplace. We’re navigating the future of workplace integration now and post-coronavirus. Here’s how we think it will look.
Now — The Immediate Changes
The first wave of employees returning to the workforce will necessitate a retrofitting of the workplace based on guidelines laid out by current health organizations. Office integration could include:
In the Future — The Reinvention
As everyone returns to the office, companies will begin reconfiguring the workplace to offer long-term solutions for enhanced safety. The new environments will require reinvention based on science and emerging technologies. Some of these reinventions could include:
The health and safety of employees should remain the top priority for companies transitioning to the office. While we can expect more flexibility in the way we do our jobs, companies want to bring employees back to the workplace because organizations understand the need for people to come together.
