If you are about to return to work after this long lockdown, you may find a couple of surprises. Without thinking about salary reductions or similar bad news, here are some changes that will make your workplace a little (or very) different.
Almost nothing will be the same after the novel coronavirus. And your workplace may be one of the places that will change the most.In the office buildings, accesses, work dynamics, schedules and even the way of socialising will change.
We list 6 new aspects that you are likely to encounter at the office after lockdowns are lifted.
1. New entry organisation: the aim is to avoid crowding
Times and shifts may be modified so that employees arrive in staggered manner and there are no queues by the lifts or entryways.
2. Encouraging meetings by videoconference
Video meetings will become more frequent. A practical way to avoid contagion and save on travel costs.
3. Thermal cameras with a body temperature sensor at the entrance
Temperature sensors may be installed at the entrances to your business to allow immediate identification of fever cases
4. Use the lifts individually, with a row of 2 metres between people
The elevators, for one person. It's the new slogan. The consequence will be that in the lower buildings, more people will use the stairs
5. Use of face masks in common areas
In common areas, the use of face masks may be mandatory for a period of time
6. Suspend fingerprinting (or leave disinfectants on hand)
In more modern buildings, fingerprint accesses could be suspended for a certain period
