NISO Change Management Webinar Series - Rethinking Spaces - 12.9.20

Some organizations and institutions in the information community have now begun planning for return to a form of face-to-face operations, requiring even more planning and adaptation on their part in order to safely bring their workforce back to an office setting. How can available spaces be re-allocated in order to accommodate social distancing? Where are plexiglass shields needed? How many workers could or should continue to work remotely and how many will only be in the office part-time? This discussion will focus on how we need to rethink the functional workspaces and shared environments of a variety of 21st century knowledge workers. If space is at a premium, how can we make the most effective use of what is available?
