With the epidemic gradually under control, people have begun to back to the office and start to work. But there are still some problems, like how to make employees feel safe and rebuild new hope and confidence in the company.
The outbreak and continuation of the pneumonia epidemic caused almost all people around the world to change their lifestyles for several months and made people realize the importance of health.
With the resumption of work across the world, companies have been paying attention to the health of their employees in real-time in addition to safeguarding the basic operations of the company. Companies will disinfect office buildings, distribute face masks to employees, and ensure that office workers keep a safe distance of one meter or more from each other.
In the face of unease and insecurity from the employees, it is the most important thing for business managers to make their employees feel safe. After all, in this special period, the stability of the people can bring better benefits. At the same time, business managers also need to understand that by only keeping the following employees healthy, a company can remain healthy, which refers not only to physical health but also psychological health.
One idea to solve this problem is to create a healthy office environment for employees.
The creation of a healthy office environment can be divided into two main perspectives: physical health and mental health.
Different air, water, light, sound, and comfort will give people different feelings. It is better to choose environmentally friendly materials, install a fresh air system, and use direct drinking water instead of barrel water, which is better to keep people healthy and avoid secondary pollution.
Give the office space the maximum natural lighting and leave the well-lit areas for more employees.
During working time, it is known to all that sitting and standing for a long time both affect health. To maintain the best health, we must pay attention to sitting in the correct posture in the office. Companies can arrange some standing desks to help employees to achieve alternate sitting and standing healthy office habits. It not only helps reduce sedentarily or standing too much, improves physical and mental health, but also helps employees focus their attention and improve their work efficiency.
At the same time, ergonomic chairs are also necessary. People can get more comfort by sitting on ergonomic chairs that can keep them sitting in correct sitting postures and be healthier.
On the other hand, companies also can place some exercise equipment in the office. Employees can take some exercises more conveniently, and their work of stress can also be relieved.
As far as possible create an interactive, equal working atmosphere in the office space. The work environment is changing greatly today. Work is no longer a person can independently complete, we need to communicate, share, interact, and sometimes even need to brainstorm.
For companies, it is important to focus on economic benefits. But in the current special period, it is more necessary to strengthen the attention of employees, to create a healthy office environment for them, and to give them a full sense of security. Human resources can achieve the transformation to economic benefits.
