During times of social distancing, business shutdowns, employee layoffs, economic uncertainty, social unrest, and widespread stress and anxiety, business owners have had to adapt and adjust quickly in order to stay afloat. We’ve seen many changes, but some of the most drastic and obvious have come from the reworking of office space routine business meetings and collaborations. Here are some things to consider if you are thinking of adding office containers to your business plan in the year ahead:
Helps Promote Focus and Attention Spans
Office containers can easily be transformed into viable office spaces that can help make working during a pandemic safer, easier, and less distracting. Studies of IT and accounting workers by researchers at the University of California at Irvine found employed changed focus and bounced from one project to another nearly every 10.5 minutes. And they were interrupted at least once during more than half of those blocks of productivity. Setting up workstations in office containers can help give people more privacy while still keeping the team close.
Allows for Safe Social Distancing While Working
Remote work is good for some businesses and in certain situations but when small group meetings or in office personnel are needed, issues became apparent. The logistics of having 10 people in a building designed for 100 made it necessary to come up with other options. This is where office containers have made a huge impact! These container offices can keep staff members isolated but allow for easier business calls and virtual meetings while allowing them to be on-site to benefit from the work-related perks of being on the job site.
The pandemic has forever changed the way we look at many aspects of life that were once taken for granted. In the business world, much has changed, and only time will tell how many of these changes are likely to be permanent for the foreseeable future. Businesses that can adapt and scale and shift focus as needed to meet social distancing and pandemic-related protocols are the ones most likely to survive and thrive in the year ahead. Adding office containers to your workplace setup can help improve functionality, productivity, and sustainability during these trying times.
