Connectivity, Culture & Collaboration in the Post-Pandemic Office
As companies continue to evaluate their near- and long-term real estate and space needs, SmithGroup's workplace strategists and design specialists are helping business leaders explore how:
- Shared spaces—break out areas, conference rooms, dining areas, courtyards, patios, terrace, atriums—can be adapted to promote flexibility and productivity while still maintaining health and safety protocols
- Digital collaboration spaces can help to create seamless connectivity experiences among teammates, regardless of a participant’s physical location
- New technologies can be deployed to further streamline and improve collaboration and teamwork—within the office, as well as for those working remotely
- Offering a variety of workspace typologies—open work centers, privacy enclaves, quiet areas, maker spaces, social zones, access to the outdoors—can help staff members feel safe, comfortable and engaged while working on site
- Increasing access to new or enhanced tools, such as (on-demand) training sessions, robust information libraries, and more.
