Post-Covid planning: How to maintain your grounds while the office is empty
It’s easy to forget about your outdoor spaces at times like these, but a little forward thinking now will benefit everyone once the lockdown lifts.
Coronavirus put the brakes on everything, but workplaces are starting to get busier as lockdown gradually lifts.
If your office or workplace has been empty for a while it’s likely the lawns and grounds are looking a bit shabby. Getting them cleaned up before your full workforce returns might not be top of your list, but it’s still important. This is why it’s necessary and how you can get it sorted easily and safely.
Neat grounds show you’re up and running
Keeping your indoor areas clean is really important and your outdoor spaces are no different. Your business won’t make a good impression with overgrown grass, untidy paths, and litter. As more people start to come into your business, demonstrate you’re open, active, and productive by keeping things tidy both indoors and outdoors.
Your staff and visitors will appreciate it
No one wants to look at weeds and untidy gardens. Welcoming green spaces are great for our mental health and your returning staff will really value them, especially if they’ve been stuck at home for months. Neat and tidy greenery is just like a neat and tidy office – it shows your visiting customers and clients that your workforce is conscientious and great at what they do.
Outdoor space is essential for social distancing
No one’s sure how long social distancing will be necessary for, but it’s likely to be in place for at least the next few months. Your staff and visitors might not be able to have easy conversations with their colleagues while they’re indoors, so access to outdoor spaces is especially important. Peaceful and pleasant grounds will help your workforce feel connected, conduct outdoor meetings comfortably, and could even boost their productivity.
