How many colleagues will go back to the office when the Covid19 crisis is over or when the 1,5m rule is eliminated? Should the office be adapted at all to the new reality or is this not necessary?
Purpose of the tool
What should the office mainly offer? Just a quiet workplace, a meeting place or a certain mix of both. By using this tool, you will gain insight into how far the work, the culture of your company and the facilities at home allow you to work from home and what this means for the office.
What does the homeoffice factor mean?
Does a high home-working factor mean that an office will have a different function? A high home-working factor means that many activities can be done at home. But whether that will actually be done depends on the culture of the company. A high score in corporate culture shows that it is customary to work from home. But even then, the office can be a better place to work. The home situation and facilities must also be included in this. The score here indicates whether the home workplace is more or less suitable for (long-term) working from home.
And when you come to the office, what facilities are needed? What will happen to the occupancy rate (flex ratio), the number of workplaces and the size of your office? By understanding this, it can be determined which adjustments in the office environments have to be made.
