Supporting WPP AUNZ's Return to Office

01 THE CHALLENGE

In March 2020, WPP responded to the threat of COVID-19 and closed all WPP AUNZ offices within Australia – all staff were advised to work from home. By April 2020, WPP AUNZ established a COVID-19 response team, which focused on preparing the organisation for a post COVID-19 recovery. 

At the end of May 2020, WPP AUNZ began planning for the reopening of their three main offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Cushman & Wakefield provided the framework to how WPP AUNZ will apply Recovery Readiness to their offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
 

02 THE SOLUTION

Cushman & Wakefield supported WPP AUNZ with a 5 week program to understand how they can apply the Safe Six principles of the 6 Feet Office Concept. Cushman & Wakefield provided a framework including tailored guidelines on how to: 
 
  • Prepare the building 
  • Prepare the workforce 
  • Control the access 
  • Create a physical distancing plan 
  • Reduce touch points and increase cleaning
  • Communicate for confidence

 

 


 

03 THE RESULT

Our team delivered a tailored framework for WPP AUNZ workplaces to a help achieve reduction in touchpoints, implementation of the Safe Six principles as well as complying to local government requirements in preparation for the commencement of a safe return to office transition. 

Physical distancing applied in three offices resulting in a reduction of 49% of work points, and around 58% reduction in meeting room seats.

REIMAGINE: How & Where The World Will Work | Asia Pacific webinar

Last month we launched an unprecedented report, The Future of Workplace based on our findings of the current work from home experience. We have now captured more than 2.5 million data points from over 50,000 workers all over the globe - the largest survey on the impact of COVID-19 on the way we work. We will share our findings, discuss what is the role of the office and reimagine how and where we will live and work in the future.
