It’s been a very long year or so. While some have opted not to return to the ofﬁce, others welcome their old pod mates with open arms (socially distanced, of course). For those returning to the ofﬁce, there can be some concern and hesitation. We’ve worked so hard to stay healthy and safe. Can we all go back into the ofﬁce and expect to remain that way?
From a managerial standpoint, this can be exciting and daunting – all at the same time. How can you manage schedules and workﬂows? If half your staff are virtual and the other half in-ofﬁce, what does that look like from a reporting perspective?
In today’s blog from RunMyProcess, we’ll discuss how the Ofﬁce Planner application can assist you in all of these areas and more as we move forward into the ‘new normal’ way of working in the ofﬁce.
This low-code app integrates sophisticated capabilities – ﬂexible cloud-based workﬂows, ofﬁce pod scheduling, conference room management, and much more. The app can consider the utilization of ofﬁce spaces and rooms, ensuring the right technology is there when it’s needed. This conﬁrms to the employee that they can work from the ofﬁce safely and risk-free.
This cloud-based app allows your entire team to check each other’s schedules to see who and how many people will be not just in the ofﬁce but in any given area, any day. When booking a hot desk or conference room, others can see the schedule in real-time, allowing your team to work with each other’s schedules for optimum efﬁciency and collaboration while remaining safe.
The Ofﬁce Planner app can tell employees which days and times their key colleagues are present in the ofﬁce. This allows everyone to plan their workdays for greater efﬁciency and collaboration.
Be proactive and keep everyone safe. The Ofﬁce Planner app sends a self-declaration form 24 hours before the employee arrives in their scheduled ofﬁce space. The form asks them to provide any information about any COVID-19 exposures or symptoms.
This mitigates the risk of ofﬁce spread, giving all your employees the sense of security they need.
Are you booking workspaces to manage the number of people in the ofﬁce at one time? The Ofﬁce Planner application can record and store employee attendance based on your booking. It will automatically generate reports on-demand – daily or weekly, depending on your preference.
It’s one thing to manage employees and make sure they are managing exposures and self-declaration, but monitoring visitors brings another security level.
The Ofﬁce Planner app monitors the attendance of any outside person – customers, visitors, vendors, family members, or partners. Every visitor can be quickly and easily registered on the app. If your company requires all visitors to self-declare, our self-declaration form can be part of the app, with easy form ﬁll.
