How to get there


No one knows what the future holds. How quickly, or effectively, we transition back to the office environments of which we've grown so accustomed is unknown. What we do know? Our spaces matter - now, perhaps, more than ever before. Social psychology (and a few months of distancing at home) reminds us that, as humans, we crave the obvious and not-so-obvious ways in which we are enriched - emotionally, creatively, spiritually, and physically - by the routines and interactions of commuting, arriving and working together. With so much to consider in bringing your people back safely, how do we adjust?

Join Baskervill Workplacce leaders Burt Pinnock and Susan Orange for an engaging discussion on the policies, practices, materials, and adaptations we're considering for our own office spaces and how you can apply them for your own.
