Back to the "new normal" – or as we call it the hybrid culture

The pandemic forced us all into home office, especially in the early days we all appreciated the advantages of working remotely. However, as things progressed, difficulties became more obvious.

Besides the challenges to managers in the aspects of performance and control, lower performance occurred due to difficulties in collaboration. However, after over a year of "trial period", we no longer want to waive the benefits, either in terms of the improved work-life balance for employees with the elimination of commuting, the environmental aspect, or the potential for savings in terms of office space.

Therefore, overall, a change in work culture and technology is necessary to bring together the best of both worlds. With many years of experience, DEKOM is your partner when preparing your company for the future. Our specialists look forward to giving you quick and easy advice via phone.

Advantages for employees

Home office offers flexibility to the employees. Some workers prefer avoiding the many potential distractions they have at home, focusing on their work and getting more work done in their day. Other employees, on the other hand, are better at focusing at home, where it may be more quiet.

Furthermore, it is no longer necessary for your employees to be located in the immediate vicinity of the company. A technically organised company can be perfectly active throughout Europe, if not globally.

This automatically reduces the number of people working in the office and simultaneously the required office space.

Advantages for companies

By now, there are many DSGVO-compliant clouds with different security requirements, including particularly secure European cloud solutions. They enable location-independent access to the data and documents you need, as well as the connection to your colleagues for seamless collaboration. Thanks to the subscription principle, you only pay for what you need. 

In future, employees can come from all over the world and work from home. This reduces the number of people working in the office and consequently the amount of office space needed, as well as any maintenance costs.

With this flexibility you offer with improved work-life balance, the well-being during work also well-being increases.

The challenge of this new working type

For many employees, communication via digital channels is still not felt intuitively. When more time is spent coordinating and agreeing in teams, productivity may suffer. It is also particularly important to have a clear overview of who comes to the office and when, to ensure that enough rooms and workstations are available. Tools to plan, design, manage and control conference room spaces, your workstations, your hot-desking spaces and your huddle room spaces more flexibly are particularly helpful here.

How do you overcome these challenges?

With room booking systems you can effectively manage and control the return to the office. With room planning/booking software, for example from Condeco, it is possible to book, manage, administer and view your rooms live. Workplace Analytic Tools from e.g. Spaceti are indispensable to control and evaluate your seating, hot desking, huddle and conference room seats per seat in real time.


Workplace planning software

With Condeco you can ensure that the density in the office is reduced and that the minimum distances are maintained. For example, with a user-friendly app for workstation planning, you can lock and manage workstations to ensure minimum distances are maintained.

You can also manage the capacities of your premises. With the planning software you allow your employees to book workstations - but only for a limited number of days per month.

The software helps you to protect your office staff from infections. It automatically creates work orders for your cleaning providers after a workstation has been used. It is only approved for re-use after a deep cleaning.

You can also react quickly to the possible spread of an infection. The app provides you with instant contact tracking by recording who, where and how close you have been to other employees.

Workplace Analytics Tools

Workplace Analytics Tools like Spaceti work with IoT sensors. These sensors measure seat occupancy/movement and they measure temperature and CO2. This allows you to control, manage and adjust your premises in real time.

With Spaceti's software you can ensure that workplace bookings are taken into account and that your employees only come to the office when it is planned. With the Workplace Analytics tools you can analyze who, when and where was in the office. So you can track exactly where he was and for how long.

In addition, you can use the IoT sensors to check whether room bookings are kept, so that minimum distances are given. You are shown in real time which rooms are in use, which tables and chairs are occupied and how many people are in a meeting room. For example, you can see exactly which chairs have been moved and how long they have been used. This allows you to check whether the basic conditions of the minimum distance are observed.

Furthermore, with Spaceti you create a foundation for returning to the office. The software offers you an Occupancy Analytics & Hot- Desking function. This allows you to evaluate the utilisation of your premises down to the individual chair. Do you have enough conference rooms? Are bottlenecks forming? Are all general conditions being met? Are there large unused areas? All these questions will be answered by means of real-time data.
