RETURNING TO THE WORKPLACE PROGRAM

Aura has surveyed leaders in various industries and created a Returning to the Workplace Program that focuses on how to better design and layout the physical space while supplying the proper equipment and cleaning services that will keep you, your staff and clients safe.

    • Touchless Technology
    • De-Densifying workplaces
    • Rethinking seating arrangements
    • HVAC upgrades
    • Disinfecting Services
    • Remote work policies
    • Real Estate Options
    • Return to the office phasing

Global Workplace Analytics (GWA), estimates that we will see 25-30% of the workforce working at home one or more days a week within the next two years. This points up the opportunities to better use of less space to reduce overhead costs. GWA suggested that a typical employer can save about $11,000US per year for every person who works remotely half of the time.

Aura has developed a step by step timeline and checklist which aligns with British Columbia’s reopening timeline to aid in the hard decisions being made to ensure our workplaces remain safe for all.



Physical Space Reconsidered

The COVID19 Pandemic has shaken our world. In particular, organizations have had to face the effect that this event has had on their business. We are forced to adjust how we interact, collaborate, communicate with our teams and these changes will remain for the foreseeable future. With the majority of organizations having had to switch to a remote workforce, the physical office space must be reconsidered.

With time, many organizations will have to return to their physical office but will have to be open to new ways of working. Over the last several years, our offices have seen a shift from traditional to a more modern workplace; developed for a more agile workforce, with collaboration as a top priority to foster relationships throughout organizations. The question now is not how to “fix” our modern workplace, but rather, how to incorporate a highly hygienic and sanitary space while preserving the cultures we have worked so hard to build and maintain in our organizations. 

CONCEPTS OF POST-COVID OFFICE DESIGN

The spectrum of office design contains endless elements. To minimize the distance between staff, there are several solutions that can be easily achieved: reducing shared desking, re-orienting furniture, separating workstations, and adding barriers such as screen partitions, plants or storage elements.

  • Touchless technology
  • Infrared thermometers
  • Sanitize/wash stations
  • Physical distancing floor markings
  • Plexiglass screens
  • Partitions in open spaces
  • Sanitary surfaces
  • PPE supplies
  • Disinfecting Services
  • Lunchroom services
  • Increase private offices
  • HVAC upgrades

We understand that each workplace is different.

Our team of workplace strategists and designers will have an initial consultation with your workplace representatives, survey your staff and deliver a complete strategy tailored to your goals and teams’ needs.
