The spread of coronavirus all over the world left national economies and businesses of all sizes counting the costs. In part, this was affected by governments who struggled to successfully implement lockdown measures in time to tackle the spread of the virus.

Though the success of the vaccination programme did help to restore business confidence to its highest level since 2018, many businesses are still feeling the lasting damage that the pandemic has caused over the past year.

During the pandemic, the majority of countries in the world ended up in a recession, according to the BBC. It is estimated that the global economy shrunk by 4.4% in 2020, the decline the worst since the Great Depression.

However, as we start to look forward towards a post-pandemic world, it is possible for businesses to recover from this. To assist your company in recuperating from the coronavirus, here are a few ways in which your workplace could recover from the pandemic.

1. Consider a serviced office space

Choosing a Serviced Office from BE Offices can not only help your business to recover from the pandemic but also future proof your business in case of any future lockdowns. This is because serviced offices are a truly flexible solution, offering space for between one to one thousand desks, depending on what you require.

For example, do you really want to be paying rent and utility bills on an office that only gets used by a couple of employees whilst everyone else works from home? With a serviced office, everything is included in the monthly rate, with the option to scale up or scale down the number of desks you need.

2. Allow for flexible working

Many people have worked from home at least for a little while throughout the pandemic and the various lockdowns. Though it is no longer government mandated to work from home, flexible working practices are something that are here to stay.

Until the pandemic is truly over, and even after it is, flexible working practices can improve employee productivity and allow employees the flexibility they need to undertake their daily tasks to the best of their ability.

3. Reassure employees

The past year has been a turbulent and unpredictable time. For this reason, it is no wonder that many people may have certain anxieties about restrictions easing and coming back to work in the office.

However, as an employer, it is essential to reassure your staff. By being open and honest about how things are going and how you are planning to recover from the pandemic, this will make employees feel safer in the workplace.

4. Employ necessary safety practices

And finally, employ the necessary safety practices to keep everyone safe (if you haven’t already). Encourage handwashing, fresh air, and mask-wearing, and set up hand sanitization points throughout the workplace.

This will make sure that everyone in the workplace stays safe, reducing the risk of anyone having to go home to isolate themselves. With everyone able to successfully come to work, unless they would prefer to work from home, this will help your workplace recover from the pandemic.

Though this year has been something that no one will ever forget, following these top tips will help your workplace to recover from the pandemic, and leave coronavirus as a thing of the past.
