As mostly independent spaces, private offices pose minimal obstacles for returning to work. Nonetheless, those who have semi-secluded spaces often need to conduct sensitive meetings with clients, coworkers, direct reports, and more. Careful improvements can maintain the usability of these spaces in a safe, sanitary, and thoughtful manner.
 

Whether you're retrofitting, renovating, or reinventing your office space, NBF has the tools you need to make a safe return to work. Contact us at 800-558-1010 for details about our complimentary space planning and design services.

BEFORE


  • In addition to dedicated workspace, some of the desktop is used for meetings with 1-2 guest chairs across from the executive chair
  • A larger private office may feature a separate small meeting table with 2 to 4 chairs

IMMEDIATE CHANGES


  • Restrict occupancy to 2 people in the office at maximum
  • Physically remove excess guest chairs
  • Add a clear acrylic divider down the middle of the meeting space for physical separation
  • Provide cleaning supplies for wiping down personal surfaces, meeting surfaces, and door knobs
  • Provide hand sanitizer for both personal and guest use

LONG-TERM SOLUTION


  • Maintain physical barriers across meeting spaces
  • Reintroduce a second guest chair in an out-of-the-way area
  • Continue using cleaning supplies and personal sanitizers
  • Use artificial plants to discourage the use of guest chairs in restricted areas
