COVID 19 Preparing for a New Environment
MAINTAINING A COMFORTABLE, HEALTHY WORKPLACE
As we think about what the future of the workplace looks like, we recognize that we are part of a larger community of organizations, cities, and individuals taking immediate, necessary steps to care for our wellbeing.
While distancing may be part of our new normal, collaboration and connection remain more important than ever—and having a safe place to do that is essential. We want our members to know that they can make THRIVE part of their day and still feel comfortable being with friends and family outside of work.
That’s why we’re enhancing our spaces and services to protect the wellbeing of our global communities—ensuring that members can continue working in a safe, healthy work environment.
PREPARE THE BUILDINGS
Enhance cleaning and disinfecting practices + pre-return inspections
Ensure safety of all workers
Clean with products from approved lists from governing authorities
New cleaning standards and capacity protocols will be reinforced with strategically-placed signage
SOCIAL DISTANCE PLAN
Decreasing density, reconfigure gathering and lobby areas
Redesign spaces, alternate desk/chair use, etc., for social distancing
Enforce stringent cleaning protocols for shared spaces
Capacity will be modified with seat-to-seat distancing which will reduce occupancy.
Prohibit shared use of small rooms and convert them to single-occupant use only
Supply disinfectants near or on each desk or work area
Sanitizing wipes, gels, and sprays; new touch-free soap.
Enable DIY cleaning through hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and other such products
Sanitize all workspace areas, including conference rooms, breakrooms, kitchens, restrooms, and other common areas prior to opening.
OUR ENHANCED STANDARDS
MAINTAINING AND ENHANCING OUR CLEANING MEASURES
Across all THRIVE buildings, our members can expect heightened cleaning and hygiene standards that align with guidance provided by the CDC, WHO, and local health organizations.
- Increased frequency and scope of daytime cleaning and sanitization
- Expanded availability of hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, alcohol sprays, and gels throughout the building
- Provision of masks, gloves, and other protective equipment to Community teams and members
- Installation of touch-free soap dispensers in all restrooms and pantries
As communal focal points, we’re taking steps to maintain the collaborative energy in our lounges while still giving members comfortable spaces to work.
Capacity will be modified with seat-to-seat distancing which will reduce occupancy. These modified capacity norms will also be reinforced with nearby signage.
As shared, collaborative spaces, meeting rooms are being enhanced so that members can connect with each other comfortably. New capacity guidelines will be posted at entrances and recommended seating arrangements will be placed on tabletops. Additionally, “house rules” will be displayed inside each room and wipe and sanitizer dispensers will be located nearby.
A FUTURE BUILT ON YOUR WELLBEING
As we navigate the evolving realities of COVID-19, we are looking ahead to what the future of the workplace holds for all of us.
Our teams are working tirelessly to ensure that whatever comes next that we’ll be ready for it, together. Above all else, we are committed to making sure that all our members can continue to work with peace of mind and focus on what matters most. That’s our promise to you.
WE’LL SEE YOU AT WORK!
