Half of Romanian employees believe that the office needs to be redesigned to create different areas that give them more flexibility and multiple working options, depending on the type of work and collaboration needs, according to a survey carried out by Romanian developer Genesis Property. 

Moreover, 60% believe there is a need for advanced technologies to improve sanitization in workplaces and therefore limit health risks, according to a survey of 1,100 employees nationwide conducted in September and October. 

”Offices need to be redesigned and transformed to better adapt to future ways of working and to employees’ activity and collaboration needs. The pandemic has changed expectations, and an office designed around a dynamic and agile concept such as the Activity-Based Workspace (ABW) model and adapted to the epidemiological context through measures and technologies such as those recommended by the IMMUNE™ standard, can be a response to post-pandemic labour market trends,” said Gavin Bonner, Vice President Genesis Property. 

Furthermore, 72% believe that enclosed spaces are also needed, with a capacity adapted to collaboration needs. Thus, larger-sized for cooperation in large teams of more than 20 people, medium-sized for meetings with 15-20 people, small-sized for activities involving participation in teams of less than 15 people, but also very small-sized for activities requiring quiet and concentration where no more than 5 people can work. 

Genesis Property has developed the IMMUNE Building Standard™. It proposes 135 consistent measures that provide building owners or companies with the necessary tools to monitor and adjust the health of workplaces.
