San Diego, CA. (March 25, 2022) – One year into the pandemic at the start of 2021, we believed we would soon return to a reinvented workplace. Now in 2022, it turned out there were still many lessons to be learned.
Jim Mumford, owner of Good Earth Plant Company, and colleagues from the Silverado Roundtable published a white paper in 2021 for architects, interior designers, facilities managers, property managers, building owners, C-suite executives, human resources professionals, and anyone involved in creating the post-pandemic workplace. It was well received and started many conversations.
Sparked by one of the most transformational societal experiments in modern history, businesses and employees no longer looked at workplaces or work the same way they did in 2020. The Great Resignation (or Realignment or Renegotiation) accelerated the new way of thinking about what it means to “go to work.”
The Silverado Roundtable applied these new lessons in an updated second edition of its white paper to reflect this emerging perspective.
The opportunity to rethink and reboot working spaces remains strong but with an adjusted point of view. Fostering a healthy workplace culture with the flexibility to accommodate a hybrid menu of options can flourish driven by the principles of biophilic design and workplace greenery.
Employees now want the best of both worlds: the focus and comfort of working from home, along with the ability to return to collaborative workspaces to be part of a team, contributing to the return of a robust economy and enriched lives.
