As the UK government makes plans to loosen current lockdown restrictions, many businesses are considering what action is needed to ensure their workplaces reopen safely. 为了解决这个问题, Mitie has launched a comprehensive guide for facilities managers, “让英国回归商业”. Including four stages to prepare for a safe return to the workplace, 以及详细的清单, the guide is a one-s前-shop covering every aspect of the building which needs to be reviewed to ensure the safe return of colleagues. 这包括从清洁到一切, 工程, 安全, 工作场所设计和房子前面, 通过废物和景观, 以及能源管理和可持续性.

让英国回归商业 has been created to help businesses of all types and sizes navigate the incredibly challenging task of preparing 为 return to the office. 同时包括具体的建议, such as how to use route planning and employee zoning to prepare for social distancing, it can also be easily adapted to specific property portfolios, 建筑物或工作环境.

To ensure a safe and efficient return to the workplace, the guide recommends businesses structure their planning around four key stages:

  • 第一阶段-设施和投资组合评估: With many workspaces currently closed or at minimal occupancy, now is the time to take a step back and review what building space the business actually needs. There may be an opportunity to reduce office footprint where there is no longer a requirement for it or alter the workplace design so it works more efficiently for employees.
  • 第二阶段-重新调试工作环境: 建筑和工作场所重新开放, it’s important that they’re safe and fully operational for colleagues and customers. As well as ensuring that the building is sanitised and allows social distancing, it’s crucial that employees understand the actions the business is taking through comprehensive employee communications.
  • 第三阶段-适应新常态: The workplace will undoubtedly be transformed due to COVID-19, but embracing that change will offer opportunities for improvement. This could include leveraging technology more widely to reduce costs and enable social distancing or the introduction of new workplace practices and policies.
  • 第四阶段-未来检验: 进一步展望未来, 商业前景的一个可能是进一步的不确定性, and so it’s important to plan for more unexpected disruptions. Reviewing and improving current processes – such as resource contingency planning or installation of remote monitoring systems – will ensure that businesses can navigate future challenges.

Businesses that work with Mitie to put these measures in place and ensure their workplaces are safe for employees to return will be granted a ‘Mitie COVID-19 Checklist Assured’ mark. 标志向员工展示, customers and other stakeholders that the business has taken steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of anyone accessing its properties.

Simon Venn, Chief Government and Strategy Officer, Mitie, said:
