Engie has published a workspace guide recommending ways that businesses can adapt a post-Covid-19 workplace while funding these changes with energy savings.
The guide advises having different zones for offices to guarantee a safer environment for those returning to work.
Craig Butt, managing director of corporate within Engie, said: “Transitioning from the current situation to a work environment that maintains productivity whilst safeguarding staff and visitors therefore requires considerable planning to mitigate risks. Organisations will also need to consider how they finance such changes, having already incurred considerable costs.”
The guide sets out ways that business leaders and building and facilities managers can meet these challenges. It provides practical guidance on the variety of workspace design options available.
The 29-page publication also considers how making financial savings elsewhere in the business – such as reducing energy costs – can fund these changes.
Butt added: “Our new publication offers suggestions for a number of options, with detailed guidance on the layout and operation of the different zones within those workplaces... We have also looked at how other savings, such as maintenance and energy costs, can be incorporated into a post-Covid-19 business plan to minimise the financial pressures on the organisation."
