Pivot to the Future – From New Normal to Next Normal

Seize the moment!  How we work, how organizations support their people, and even the definition of work has been reset in the last months.  Attracting and retaining the best people and amplifying your organization’s competitive advantage will be the mark of the reimagined workplace.  A successful Pivot to the Future will establish the workplace as the headquarters of your community and culture and create a place where people truly want to be.

PDR’s Pivot to the Future program will set your organization on the path to the Next Normal by developing your unique roadmap, executing an action plan, and accelerating your business performance.

New Normal – PDR’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Our new, shared reality will forever change how we work and significantly impact our work environments moving forward. Now is the time to explore and prepare for return-to-the office scenarios that will positively impact your business performance, inspire your people, and improve their well-being, and deliver more value from your real estate investment.

Right now, we are offering a complimentary consultation to discuss supporting your organization’s or your clients’ business goals.

The one-hour consultation is a new offering highlighted specific to a “New Normal.”  We also do consultation calls with existing and prospective clients for other consulting services as well.

The New Normal one-hour consultation call is designed to lay out a concise picture of all the Return to Workplace considerations.  Included in the consultation is a clear road map for decision-making and action planning as conditions change over time.

We also provide recommendations for readiness assessment, task force development, and the next steps to help clients get started.  There is a lot of material around this topic, some of it good and some of it not so good.  The thought-leaders at PDR have curated select content in an easy to understand format that helps paint a holistic picture of a complicated matter.

The Crisis Response – React

Due to COVID-19, almost 100% of the population was sent home to work. Our primary focus is on people’s safety. The most important thing on the people front is to keep them protected. On the work front, we are trying to enable the processes they need to get their work done, and we are making sure our people have a functional space to work at home.

The Transition Period – Return

It’s not back to normal and it’s not the end game. It’s a moment in time. It needs to be strategic and measured. We are focused on productivity. But, if the reason to go back isn’t focused on people, then we shouldn’t be planning a return. If the reason is to sterilize the environment and determine how people stay 6’ apart, why would they go back?

The New Normal – Reimagined

People would really like some combination that works for them across that spectrum – working in the office, working remotely, and how I work with people. That’s what empowered will look like in the future. That’s what will enable innovation, and creating places focused no supporting that.
