As Singapore transit into Phase Two of reopening the economy, most businesses have resumed and offices are gradually opening up again. However, in the absence of a COVID-19 vaccine, employees will not be able to commute and collaborate as before. Therefore, when returning to work, companies will need to take adequate steps to adhere to safe management principles to safeguard their employees; and making them feel safe, trusted and valued. Redefining the office workspace layout will be necessary. As such, how do glass panels help to support and facilitate the workspace redefinition and reconfiguration?
Other than dividing employees into groups to control the density of personnel in the workspace, organisations can also consider using glass panel as part of the space planning strategy! Glass panels are an excellent way to divide work zones without the connotation of one feeling closed in. The simplicity of glass panels allows visibility across space whilst ensuring the safe distance between individuals. At the same time, our minimalistic glass panels also encourage the flow of natural light.
COVID-19 has brought unprecedented change to people and industries across the globe. As companies begin to resume activity, employees may be concerned about coping with the new normal of balancing social interaction, collaboration and safe distancing when they are back at work. Hence, when planning for re-entry to the workspace, it can be helpful for organisations to consider using glass panels to optimise exposure to natural light, as the natural sunshine brings a positive impact on our mental health.
Smart workplace technology and systems can also assist in facilitating safe re-entry to the workforce. By leveraging on tools such as the meeting room booking software, it will be able to ease the flow of traffic by eliminating the need for employees to move around the office to look for unoccupied spaces. Hence, it is imperative to keep power cables and wires required for electrical switches/devices neat. With ISP’s Power Pole solution, we can conceal and protect these wires neatly and is also able to complement the glass panels seamlessly.
