The Floorbrite Group has brought all its employees back to the office for four days a week. Here, the company’s Marketing and Brand Director, Nina Wyers, explains how it has managed to do this successfully.


Recently, we announced that The Floorbrite Group’s HQ renovation project is a finalist at this year’s 2021 Mixology Awards in London, (the undisputed commercial interiors awards ceremony of the year), for Project of the Year, Workplace Interiors 5 – 15k sq ft.


To say we are proud is an understatement, but I couldn’t mention it without saying that it is testament to the hard work of Inactu Facilities Support Ltd and Gary Roebuck, who managed and delivered the project.


The project hasn’t gone without its challenges though. On Friday 13 March 2020 we opened phase one of our beautifully renovated offices to our staff at Floorbrite HQ. We were so excited to move into our amazing new open plan space after months and months of the team being split across the offices at our distribution centre whilst the work was being done.


However, four days later we closed the offices and sent everyone to work from home. The following Monday (23 March), Boris Johnson made his sobering address to the country and the Government sent us all into the first of many lockdowns. We didn’t see our beautiful new building again for months.


24 | COVER STORY


During the lockdowns, we managed to finish phase two with some delays in materials due to COVID-19 and the initial restrictions for everyone, but we got there and now have a state-of-the-art building to return to.


This question was then posed to me: “Wow, you have these amazing new offices, so how are you getting back to work?” Apparently, many FMs have been asking the same question.


Step four of the roadmap for England on 19 July lifted most legal restrictions. Social distancing and facemasks are no longer mandatory and businesses that were still closed, such as hospitality, can reopen, and events can go ahead without a limit on numbers. However, the Government advises to proceed with caution, limit the close contact you have with those you do not usually live with, and meet outdoors where possible. How is this going to work in practice?


There are multiple viewpoints and opinions. For some businesses, they may be about to reopen for the first time since March 2020 and they could want to start with a phased return. However, Floorbrite has been working a hybrid system for some time (excluding lockdowns) and have chosen to move ahead with the next stage of transition.
