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.
Inform the prioritization schedule of employees returning to the workplace.
Determining who goes back to the office and when is no easy feat. With a series of vetted and curated questions regarding department, team structure, technology, and personal insight—decision makers can gather the information needed to inform their strategy, including decisions about who needs to be in the office and which employees can remain working from home or come to the office on a part-time basis. The deliverable is the Demand for work seats in the existing office space.

Built upon Gensler’s WPI (Workplace Performance Index Survey), the WFH (Work from Home) Experience diagnostic tool is a proprietary, web-enabled survey tool designed to assess how employees are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey gathers data points about how employees previously worked in their office environment and how they are currently working at home. This is combined with employee insights, concerns, and what matters most when they return to the office environment after the pandemic and gives employees a voice into how they work and what they value.
The comprehensive survey includes three key question blocks, which can be combined or utilized individually:
