In these unusual times it is important that companies and organisations can guarantee their continuity. One of the biggest challenges is monitoring employee productivity. Office 1.5 helps companies and organisations to achieve this goal, providing employees comfortable and adaptable home offices and helping offices to reopen within the framework of social distancing.
To keep employees productive, it is very important that they have an adaptable home office. Health and Safety Law requires employers to create a safe and healthy workplace for employees, regardless of their location. More than ever this heightens the importance of the home office.
The platform ikwerkthuis.nu supports employers by providing their employees with a suitable home office. Alongside our extensive range of products, we offer various services to provide your employees with all the tools to be productive at home. For example, an ergonomic coach, physio, online yoga classes and other useful information that contributes to the prevention of physical and mental complaints.
Within the constraints of social distancing it is still possible to reopen offices. We have developed various plug & play solutions with experts from the field. Supported by a simple transition program, these solutions can be used anywhere and are ready for implementation in your business.
This simple transition program stimulates awareness and drives behavioural change. This will help your employees to make good decisions on where to work (home office or office) and establish new rules, facilitating safe distancing when meeting or working in the office. As social isolation is a major challenge facing all of us, the office can play an important role in providing a safe environment for people to meet. It is only possible to meet and work safely with full awareness of our behaviour.
The timeline below displays all relevant elements that are needed to provide a comfortable and safe (home). Timeline elements are displayed in chronological order and are indicative. Actual lead times depend on scope, stock and decision-making.

The impact of COVID-19 on our lives is huge. This is reflected in the way that offices have been transformed.
Many offices are closed or have been left open with precautionary measures. If we want to restart using offices in the coming months, it is important to carefully think about the way we can do this. There are three important aspects that will ensure a safe office.
1. FACILITATE MEETING
The office is an important tool to prevent social isolation, created by a lack of personal contact. Many companies are focusing on maximising the availability of desks in the office, whereas the majority of people are looking for opportunities to safely meet with people in their teams.
2. STIMULATE AWARENESS (BEHAVIOUR)
Safe working and meeting in the office will only be possible if employees are aware of their behaviour. When will you go to the office, what are the rules and how could the office user contribute to the safety in the office? We are introducing a simple and easy transition program to help companies and organisations to get started!
3. IMPLEMENT EFFECTIVE MEASURES
Insufficient measures are being taken to effectively organise a safe working environment. With experts from the field, we have developed plug and play solutions that, once combined, will lead to a higher awareness of users (e.g. corona officer). We also have solutions that will enable users to increase their personal safety (e.g. personal hygiene kits combined with disinfection of waste water in toilets).
