Path Forward Series: Navigating the Now, Near & Next
As we navigate the rapid changes our country has been facing since the onset of this pandemic, we realize that it impacts all of us differently, on a professional and personal level. The path forward is a fluid journey, but we’re rolling up our sleeves to help you through it.
As we prepare for this next chapter, we want to share key learnings, offer our perspective, and support you in any way we can. Our teams have been working diligently to curate a collection of planning resources and product solutions based on guidelines from the CDC, WHO, OSHA, IWBI, Fitwel, and others. This collection will be housed in a new section on our website titled, “A Path Forward”.
In this Path Forward blog series, we will be taking a deeper look into how we are currently serving the now, focused on the near, and planning for what’s next.
The Now: The way the world is thinking about work has changed. As companies look to bring staff back to the office, it is important to assess the built environment and understand the level of readiness to support teams physically, emotionally, and mentally.
We are rooted in a history of seizing the horizon and crafting what’s next. And by crafting what’s next, we’re always ready for what’s now. Kimball has numerous solutions in our current portfolio that can help companies adapt immediately. We can retrofit your existing products, redesign your spaces, and help you reimagine what’s next. Whatever that looks like, we will work with you to make sure your employees feel safe, healthy, and valued in their place of work. Take a look through our Product Solutions for a Responsible Return document to see more.
The Near: We need to prepare for this new workplace and adopt ways to incorporate space division into existing workstations. Our newly designed and easy-to-install screens and dividers offer the ability to quickly retrofit existing products. With a focus on employee wellness, social distancing, and enhanced sanitation, we’re actively manufacturing solutions for wellness stations, temperature kiosks, and workstations for increased hygiene, in addition to developing finishes that allow for increased cleanliness.
The Next: As changemakers, we have a history of reinventing ourselves. We embrace the unknown and empower the human spirit through integrity, determination and an eye toward what lies ahead. From the office to the home and places between, we are reimagining what’s next and redesigning the future. Committed to helping employees thrive, we’re actively developing products and solutions that support work, wherever it happens.
Together, we can craft the now, the near, and the next. Visit our A Path Forward Workplace Strategies to get started.
