\u00a0 New offices after Covid19 \u2013 how will the new work spaces be? Eighty six percent of employees support the installation of protective panels at offices Without doubt Covid19 will involve considerable changes in the design of offices. Firstly we will have to be sure that we work in offices ready to avoid the transmission of pathogens of the future and where the safety of employees comes first. Companies are already reformulating the design of their work spaces, both individual and collective with respect to aspects such as distance between employees, routes, size con common areas\u2026to guarantee the safe return to work centres and respond to the concerns of employees. In this sense, over 86% of office employees asked by Ofita support the idea of installing protective panels at their work stations. \u201cGreat companies, banks, insurance companies\u2026.with branches all around the country are demanding these panels as a protection both for the employee-client relation and in their headquarters for the staff\u201d declares Mart\u00edn L\u00f3pez, Ofita\u2019s Commercial Director. These transparent screens offer individual isolation for each person both lateral and frontal. \u201cThey allow natural light to pass and communication between colleagues, they are very easy to mount and clean\u201d, he explains. But also we will see changes in the design of work spaces which are more related to the perception we have of offices and new work methodologies according to Ofita, office furniture manufacturer. \u00a0 Non-territorial offices Firstly after to the return to normal, we expect an increase of telework \u201cmore companies will encourage employees to work from home some days and at specific times. Therefore there will be less work stations at the office and there will be non-territorial, which means that they will not be assigned to a specific person\u201d. The task of the office will be more social, a meeting place to share experiences and knowledge\u201d. According to Ofita\u2019s analysis, after this period of isolation we miss socializing at the office. At present, collaborative areas represent 65% of our offices and for over 80% \u201cit is essential\u201d to preserve these spaces at headquarters. In the opinion of Ofita\u2019s commercial director \u201cafter confinement we will be saturated of online meetings and will need to relate between us and in physical spaces that warmly welcome us\u201d. In this sense, he recalls that collaborative spaces encourage more participative cultures and ease innovation and creation processes. Moreover \u201cfor 78% of the employees surveyed the feeling of belonging to an organization when they work in an office is greater that when they do it from home\u201d. \u00a0 New offices after Covid19, a hybrid eco-system New offices after Covid19 will be according to Ofita, a hybrid eco-system between private and collaborative spaces. \u201cOpen plan offices were already in decline before the coronavirus, ever more frequently we are moving on to the creation of office spaces that allow a balance between isolated concentration and productive and social collaboration\u201d. \u201cAnd such an intense experience with telework will reinforce this trend\u201d according to Mart\u00edn L\u00f3pez. \u201cWorking at home we have learnt to enjoy the most personal and private moments and spaces that will provide better concentration and at the same time we miss the relationship with our colleagues and collaborators. Therefore, our work dynamics will be more flexible, the famous \u201cwork were you want\u201d and the offices will be mixed, open work areas coexisting with more or less closed spaces such as cabins\u2026\u201d Microoffice There are plenty advantages of the open office: it favours debate and team work, it eases flexible work, saves costs and humanizes the work space as it makes it more social. But it also presents disadvantages; the noise, constant distractions that hamper concentrated work and lack of privacy to hold telephone conversations or meetings. In fact, 70% of people are not satisfied with its work environment especially because they cannot concentrate. \u201cCounting with different environments helps workers choose the most appropriate space and even the state of mind, which adds a personal touch to the privacy experience\u201d says Ofita\u2019s Commercial Director. Privacy spaces can be more or less closed, opaque or glazed and privacy can be an individual or team experience. \u201cImportant thing is that these spaces offer the possibility of concentrating on the activity we are developing and with the privacy and security we require\u201d.
