12 May Back to Work: Insights from the Interior Environment
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”Albert Einstein
During these unprecedented times in the modern workplace, creating safe and agile environments for our team and community has quickly transitioned from trend to survival. Accountability, flexibility, integration of technology and adaptation are themes that will shape our landscape like never before. We all must learn to plan for the unpredictable and the journey into the unknown starts with the first step — a successful return to work.
In preparing our firm for coming back amidst the pandemic, we turned to our experience in project management, tapped into industry resources and leaned heavily on the fundamentals of design thinking. Focusing on our physical spaces, social interactions, personal care and well-being, we created what we believe is a holistic approach in mitigating disruption and fostering change agency.
However, if the past few months have taught us anything, our firm does not stand alone. Improving the health and vitality of our community takes a collective effort. We are sharing these insights in the hopes that they might inspire other companies through this challenging time and encourage strategic preparation in the face of these anomalous organizational shifts.
