Additional COVID-19 Precautions


It is extremely important to us at desk chair Workspace to keep our members safe and our space clean. Coworking communities, as a service, thrive to allow professionals to have an area outside of their home or remote workplace to be productive as possible, and we want to be able to facilitate that need.

In order to help keep our facility functioning and safe, we have implemented some new changes to the building such as our new HVAC purifying system. While this may not be a feature we see on the day-to-day, it is extremely valuable to the health and well-being of our members and staff.

The pandemic has heightened all of our awareness surrounding health topics and daily activities that could put our health at risk.

Things we are doing: 


  • Blue light surface disinfector
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Sneeze guards in hot desk area
  • Mandatory maks in common areas
  • Socially distanced Dedicated Desk area
  • Motion censored lights and sinks
  • Air purifying system in the HVAC system

“GPS’ technologies are meant for “POP” The three primaiy contributors to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) are: Particulates Odor & Pathogens.

Particulates: During the GPS cleaning process, air­borne particulates (dust, pet dander, pollen) are treated and theQ drawn together increasing their size and mass. Larger particulates are more easily captured effectively increasing the efficiency of a home’s air filters.

Odor & Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs ): During the GPS cleaning process, cooking odors, pet odors and chemical odors, (like formaldehyde) are broken down into basic compounds free of any smell.

"Health has always been, and will continue to be desk chair’s main priority throughout all COVID-19 regulations and beyond."

How will office shifts affect your employees?

When the world shut down, we moved our offices into our homes and adjusted to the work-from-home lifestyle. Some conformed and found a new favorite way to be productive. However, for those who didn’t have access to a quiet space, internet connection, or other basic office accommodations, it was a trying time and difficult to get through. Now, that the majority of the country has reopened, companies are still figuring out ways to work. With a lot of employers choosing to remain working from home until 2021, employees are still struggling to adapt and anticipating the day they can be back in the office with any available human interaction.



It makes sense. Study after study has shown that being in a collaborative workspace can improve productivity by up to 30%. The term ‘Productivity Spillover’ is a topic that was researched in a supermarket setting with cashiers. When working together, cashiers completed tasks in a quicker manner when working alongside other employees. This spillover is something that working from home lacks. With no sense of pressure or competition, some employees can lose motivation or focus on the task at hand. 


What next?

So, with research pointing towards the effectiveness and efficiency of in-person working, how does a company safely return to the office? While health protocols are debated everyday, and the virus remains a threat to our safety, there are still options. Imagine this, a clean sterilized workspace with flexible leases, countless amenities, and proper social distancing. Sound too good to be true? No, that sounds like your dream coworking space! 


Coworking spaces provide all of your office furniture, coffee, internet, and printing needs, while still offering the freedom to choose your own hours and commute. Remote employees can have access to a space that still feels like ‘going into the office’ and fosters the productivity of the old office. Finding a space that provides that human interaction and productivity spillover effect could be your answer to the working from home rut. 


If your office is closed and there’s no real foreseeable reopening, then look to providing other options for your employees. The pandemic has reached worldwide and affected everyone in different ways, and listening to and meeting the needs of your team will help rebuild your morale and culture.
