  • Readiness: Immediate Needs

    The main focus is on the health and safety of your employees. Through assessment tools and workshops, we will identify how your staff is adapting both physically and mentally and provide solutions to meet those needs.

  • Revitalization Workshop: Communication

    Designing custom communications campaigns for busy organizations is a one of our specialties. Employees need transparent and consistent communication around many organizational issues – performance, vision, next tactical steps, etc.

  • Readiness: Preparation

    As we prepare our office for a safe return, we focus on remote working policies, action plans and methods to increase a healthy work environment.

  • Revitalization Workshop: Remote Working Policy

    Evacuating the workplace abruptly and securing the ability to video conference all day, does not mean that a long-term remote policy has been formulated.

  • Readiness: Guidelines

    Wayfinding, signage, social distancing measures and barriers will define this transitional phase and help employees feel comfortable when entering the office.

  • Revitalization Workshop: Etiquette

    Every organization will need to draft robust policies to meet local and national regulations. But how should employees behave when the microwave isn’t available, when too many people are in the restroom, when someone is not wearing a required mask?

  • Readiness: Interim solutions

    Phase 4 will focus on interim-to-long term solutions within the office to encourage employees back into a scheduled environment.

  • Revitalization Workshop: Distributed Workplace

    If your organization will not take on additional real estate to accommodate all employees, then shift work or free-address will likely need to be implemented as more return to the workplace.

  • Readiness: Future

    Focus on the future means finding long-term and permanent solutions that celebrate culture and engagement. Flex schedules, company gatherings and events will follow new protocols. Modular workspaces, walls and technology will be in the forefront.

  • Revitalization Workshop: Culture

    Remote work exacerbates loneliness, anxiety and disengagement in the workplace, costing businesses billions per year. We can help you celebrate your culture through challenging and distant times.
