What’s the Best Way to Reenter the Workplace? Karnatz and Houle to Offer Best Practices at IFMA Event

ESD duo to discuss three avenues during “The Return to a New Workplace.”

Amid the pandemic, some employers are considering new workplace and facility strategies to emerge stronger and better positioned to reenter the workplace. These can range from expanding the contactless office to improving indoor air quality to improve the health and wellness of employees.

Kurt Karnatz and Tom Houle will team up with Mark Stenftenagel and Rick Joutras from Whitney Architects to discuss how properly navigating three key avenues can be the differentiator for success when returning to the workplace amid the pandemic during the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) Nashville Chapter event “The Return to the New Workplace” on Monday, Nov. 17 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. CT. Karnatz has been tapped as an expert this year concerning ways the office will change because of COVID-19, including explaining the budding importance of touchless technology, smart systems, geolocation and a narrow band of UVC during the webinar “Covid Impacts on the Future of Office Design” hosted by CoreNet Global.

Want to know more? If you would like further assistance in better understanding the best way to return to the workplace, please reach out to Kurt and/or Tom.
