How Partitions Can Make The Transition Back To The Office Easier

How Partitions Can Make The Transition Back To The Office Easier

Most of us have been required to work from home due to the coronavirus pandemic and many will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. For those in sectors where they may be required to return to the office, the transition back into a livelier space can be difficult.

To make this adjustment period easier and more manageable for staff, room dividers and partitions can be used to create individual spaces for your staff which provides a certain level of familiarity. Once your staff are settled in, these room dividers can then be repurposed for other social distancing measures, such as creating a one-way system or separating commonly occupied areas.

Here are some of the benefits of utilising room dividers and partitions in your office.

Creating Individualised Spaces

As many people have gotten used to working from home, they may have adapted to working in a solitary environment and it may take some time for people to re-adjust to the office environment.

With room dividers and partitions, you can separate work desks and create cubicles for staff which gives them a space of their own to work in. Although it’s not exactly the same as working from home, it does give them more of a personal space which may help make the transition easier.

Maintaining Social Distancing

Some staff members may be hesitant about returning to the office because of coronavirus concerns and that is completely understandable. It’s up to the business to make sure that the office is as COVID-safe as possible and this will mean investing in the right mitigation products and social distancing measures to keep employees safe.

Smaller offices, in particular, may not have the space needed for implementing social distancing and the 2-meter rule. This is where our range of partitions and room dividers can help.

Our room dividers and partitions are designed to reduce the spread of contagious, airborne viruses that are commonly spread through coughing and sneezing. It creates a physical barrier between employees and they can be used in a wide variety of applications and spaces.

We also have a transparent range of room dividers which helps to maintain visibility in the office whilst also providing the benefits of reducing the risk of spreading coronavirus.
