Pillar Booth in the Post-COVID Workplace
At some point people are going to stop working from home and go back to their offices. Nobody knows exactly when it’s going to happen or what it’s going to look like, but two things are clear. First, employers are concerned about how they are going to keep their staff safe when they resume working from the company’s office. Second, employees have the same concern, and they want to know what will be done to protect their wellbeing.
The Pillar team has been sheltering in place, working remotely from our homes in Chicago, and focusing on how to help. We decided that our response needed to be more than a set of guidelines; it needed to be physical changes to the Pillar Booth. So we consulted with industry experts and based on what we’ve learned we made some design tweaks in order to set the industry standard when it comes to safety and sanitization.
Pillar Booths have a multitude of features designed to increase cleanliness and safety. The panels can be removed and cleaned, there is an option for bleach-cleanable fabric and an antimicrobial exterior, the flooring is durable and easy to disinfect, and there is a high rate of air circulation. With Pillar Booth, you can return to the office with confidence.
Even after the current crisis subsides, there’s a good chance that people will continue to avoid close proximity to others. Social distancing in public places may help prevent another pandemic and could even make cold and flu season more bearable. However, distancing from others can be especially challenging in an office environment.
Property managers can use our office booths for COVID-19as part of addressing hygiene in the workplace. These booths promote the importance of cleanliness in the workplace by providing employees an isolated space that can be sanitized easily. They are an ideal addition to any office in which keeping distance may not be as easy as it sounds.
Pillar Booths were designed to give employees a quiet, private spot for taking phone calls or concentrating on their work, but they also encourage workplace cleanliness. Whatever the post-pandemic office looks like, our booths could help create a safer space that is also conducive to productivity. To learn more about Pillar Designs’ products, contact us today.
