Coronavirus Office Rightsizing
A post-COVID world means a lot of businesses are rethinking the way their spaces are laid out, whether they’re retail companies, healthcare institutions or anything in between. Everyone from individuals to massive multimillionaire companies adapting to the times.
In the new age of social distancing, things are changing in the traditional ways of collaborating within an office setting or simply going out to shop. The professional office movers at Mountain Moving & Storage can help.
We have moved thousands of companies throughout the Tacoma, WA area, and we are in tune with what the business community needs, including new safety procedures.
We’ve been keeping ourselves updated on how other companies are handling the pandemic and want to impart some of that knowledge in the form of reorganizing your space.
Office Movers Ready to Help
Almost everyone is working from home, but that won’t always be the case. Around the nation, there are particular states that have their own plans to slowly reopen.
In the meantime, Mountain Moving & Storage can help you prepare for your grand reopening by helping you design a plan for your office space or retail shop that allows for both collaboration and distancing.
We’ve been keeping our eyes and ears open, always paying attention to state, local and federal guidelines so that we’re always ensuring the most recent protocols and procedures are followed.
Following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, local health departments recommendations to employers include:
- Keep employees at least an arms-length apart from each other.
- Even if you’re in the same office, try to use video/virtual conferences to keep a safe distance between.
- If you work in an industry with a lot of foot traffic, ensure frequent hand washing and disinfecting practices daily.
- Consider allowing employees to work from home more than usual.
- If you have a big staff, think about adjusting shift start times for employees.
- Think about your sick leave policy. You may have to readjust said policy to allow employees to stay home sick without a doctor’s note.
Changing with the times protects not only your company and your staff, but ensures the well-being of customers that may encounter you or your company.
Companies that can demonstrate how they meet the social distancing guidelines set forth by their state, local or federal government may be reopening quicker.
It’s important to show the public how serious a business is taking this situation, as that will determine how they interact with them in the future.
Those in retail will find this especially helpful, as their business relies solely on customer-facing interactions. If the public sees an organization is taking measures to ensure their safety, they’re more likely to feel comfortable enough to return.

Office Real Estate and Reconfiguration
Without a doubt, COVID-19 has changed the business world. What will the future office look like?
Here are how many companies are responding to office design following COVID-19:
- Less meetings and more video conferences mean that your company may be using less chairs, desks and other equipment. Mountain Moving & Storage has storage solutions for short term and long-term needs.
- If less staff are working in the office, you may be thinking about cutting costs even more by relocating to a smaller space. We’ve helped all types of businesses throughout Tacoma relocate small and large offices while maintaining minimal downtime and decreased disruptions.
