This post is part of a series aimed to help Office Managers/Facilities, EAs, Workplace Experience, Admins and anyone whose job it is to focus on employee experience at their virtual/hybrid office.
In the last few weeks we have really ramped up the in office advice chit chat. From reopening your dusty office to the possibility of hotel desking; there really is a ton we all have to wrap our heads around. We are on the frontier of change and I am guessing you are up for the challenge of it all!?
I thought you might be! Ok, so your office is open and now employees are trying to navigate stopping into said office. It is only inevitable that people will want to begin mingling and utilizing supplies in the space.
