Rethinking Workplace: Shifting perspectives in the midst of Covid-19

Shifting perspectives in the midst of Covid-19

People around the world are still adapting to the ‘new normal’. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to rage across the globe, with ‘local’ lockdowns emerging. In this fast-changing world, the way we work has fundamentally changed and Tarkett has been busy finding out what this means for commercial interior design.

At Tarkett our customers’ needs are at the centre of everything we do. To help you navigate this ‘new’ world in the midst of the coronavirus, we must start by asking the right questions. That’s why when the pandemic emerged, Tarkett launched a global omnibus survey to track how employee’s views and experiences of work and the office are changing over time.

Shifting perspectives in the midst of Covid-19 report

Through ‘The Great Indoors’ platform Tarkett is running 3 global surveys of 2,800 office workers in collaboration with workplace consultants from WKSpace. This first report explores results from the first survey.

Design consultancy & floorplan design

Fitting offices with adequate wayfinding and office zoning measures in line with Government guidelines is critical for workplace safety. By embedding signage within the floor, employees have a clear, constant and visual reminder of how to navigate around the office and maintain social distancing.

Carpet tiles and Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) products offer almost limitless potential in terms of colours and patterns and can be used independently and together.

Our design teams at Tarkett are available to support you with your interior planning and layout.

Cleaning & Maintenance

As public life resumes during the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone cares about cleanliness. As an expert in contributing to the creation of healthier spaces, Tarkett wants to clear away that confusion, and help you safeguard the health and wellness of your space.

When it comes to flooring, carpet and LVT offer different benefits. Carpet is simple to vacuum and does not need any additional cleaning agents, while smooth flooring like LVT is easy to wipe down. Download our detailed cleaning and maintenance guide to find out how to clean, sanitize and disinfect both types of flooring.

Indoor Air Quality

The global push for clean air has never been more urgent. Researchers at Harvard University have determined that just a small increase in the long-term exposure to air pollution – particulate matter (PM) or fine dust - significantly heightens the risk of Covid-19 fatalities.

As floorcoverings go, DESSO Airmaster has been proven to be eight times more effective at capturing and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions - and four times better than any other carpet.

With our Tarkett Human-Conscious Design™ approach we continue to lead the way to healthier indoor spaces.

Office Zoning & Wayfinding

Flooring can play a key role in contributing to a healthy and welcoming workplace by creating clear – yet flexible – zones, helping your employees and visitors maintain social distancing and keep safe thanks to optimal office wayfinding.

DESSO Icons carpet tiles

With DESSO Icons office wayfinding arrows you have a flexible, simple and cost-effective way of guiding employees and visitors into your office safely and easily.
