Editorial Webcast Sponsored by:

Landlords and tenants have been faced with a problem they never expected nor planned for: how to safely return employees to their offices following a lock-down necessitated by a pandemic.

Many companies are even deciding to make their workforce permanently remote or something in between, such as setting up a hub and spoke model for their office operations, with satellite offices in the suburbs and smaller urban headquarters.

This webcast will discuss key issues, including everything from the physical safety of the building, to scheduling employees for work in shifts so offices are not fully occupied, to rethinking the size of office footprints. Panelists will also discuss a wide variety of plans to ensure employee, visitor and public safety. You will learn:

  • How other companies have handled returning to their offices.
  • Necessary modifications, data, and what to keep in mind when returning to the office. 
  • Best practices, as well as legal requirements, for returning employees to work.
