As the 'social distancing economy' gradually starts to gain momentum, we will be able to return to the office in a few weeks or months. But not all at the same time. ''By putting protocols in place today, businesses and organizations everywhere can prepare to open their doors once again,'' says Harold Coenders, head of workplace innovation.
Organizing effective social distancing at the office requires efficient redesign, clear communication and sound planning. ''This combination can increase the number of workplaces in use without endangering the health of employees. To achieve this balance, it is vital to be guided by a clear set of basic principles.''
