With Wifi, outlets, shaded coverings, comfortable seating and a variety of work surfaces, The Commons are an option for employees who may not be ready to be back in the office, but would still like to connect in-person with coworkers. And, as an Irvine Company customer, your business has access to outdoor workspace across our portfolio.
We’ve modified the configurations for our outdoor workspaces to support physical distancing. Following CDC guidance, we’ve added hand sanitizing stations and spacing reminders. With access to a variety of different outdoor options, your business can feel confident hosting everything from a small team meeting to a leadership training.
New Employee Onboarding. There’s more to onboarding than just learning new systems and processes. Building camaraderie, connection and mutual respect with coworkers is essential for new employees to thrive at work. Organizations that do this effectively improve new hire retention by 82% and productivity by over 70%, according to Glassdoor. But remote work eliminates the opportunities for many of these serendipitous moments. Outdoor onboarding sessions are an opportunity for new hires to begin building these ties with their coworkers, while quickly resolving technical issues or process questions in person.
Team Meetings. The antidote to remote work burn-out: skip your weekly virtual all-hands and bring the team together safely at one of our expansive outdoor workspaces. There’s no substitute for the magic that happens when employees come together in person, especially after extended remote work periods. Our Workplace Success Team can assist with event set up and connect you to catering options, as desired.
Skill Workshops and Leadership Training. In-person networking events and conferences may be on hold until next year, but your employees can still enhance their leadership and management skills. Many of our event-ready outdoor workspaces include outdoor televisions and AV hook-ups that are ideal for hosting trainings.
