Using generative algorithms, Gensler has developed a physical distancing tool, ReRun—a data-driven process for post-Covid workplace occupancy planning. While maintaining the existing layout of a workplace, ReRun can quickly generate many scenarios and identify the most optimized plan for a variety of physical distancing conditions, whether an organization has hundreds or thousands of seats.
As organizations plan the return to work, phased approaches or shift work scenarios are being adopted to maximize seating utilization while respecting physical distancing and providing opportune times for cleaning.
With essential employees spread out across the office and temporarily sitting at a desk previously assigned to someone else, clear communication regarding the expected seat assignments can add transparency and clarity to all parties. Indicating the respective desks, break rooms and bathrooms to be used can also help facilities teams prioritize cleaning plans for spaces being used.
Our global team of consultants and strategists is ready to help your organization recover, adapt to the new normal, and plan for the future. We blend proven research, tools and methodology with the innovation that comes from design thinking to deliver meaningful change and lasting results.
