Get back to work with the Casco #Backtowork initiative
What will have to happen to ensure that those going back to work feel safe?
Osborn has created the Casco #BackToWork initiative to address the uncertainties. Osborn and her team are helping businesses update their floor plans, work stations and common areas to respect new social distancing norms.
“We’ve heard your concerns and are committed to keeping your employees safe, healthy and ready to get back to work when the ban is lifted,” says Osborn to the employers and office managers strategizing how to safely open back up.
Osborn has founded her plan on three crucial tenets: retrofit, reorganize, and reenergize.
First, her team takes a quick analysis of the existing space and the level of risk, determining what needs to be cleaned, what needs to be taken out or put in, and how people are entering and exiting.
After the first step is completed, Casco takes a deeper dive into the space. What is the density of the building? Where are people working, congregating and meeting? How can the team redesign the space in accordance to social distancing?
Lastly, Osborn and her Casco team reenergize the workspace to acknowledge the changes in business and work function we’ve experienced during the pandemic. “People are getting used to working from home,” she explains. “The way we do business is now different.”
