How new work environment will look like?
In the short-term, returning workers can expect stepped-up cleaning and reinforcement of social distancing. Probably more distancing, hand sanitizer stands, maintenance staff and less number of people in the lifts.
In the long run, we expect business owners, directors, HRs and decision-makers in companies to find themselves, if not yet, rethinking the business processes, operations and other activities. Taking into consideration the Covid-19 Pandemic outcomes, we will be seeing public areas, buildings, hotels, hospitals and commonly office spaces reimagined or redesigned in response to an increased understanding of the disease.
The pandemic speeding up the implementation of not necessarily new but 'hot' mechanisms and development of all types of touch-less technology such as automatic doors, self-cleaning bathrooms, voice-activated elevators, cellphone-controlled hotel room entry, hands-free light switches and temperature controls.
