Standards and Guidelines for Returning to the Workplace
Our updated standards and guidelines across operations and workspaces are designed to help our members move into their next stage of business, as restrictions relating to COVID-19 ease and we look to create a new norm for businesses.
Hub has produced a comprehensive brochure to help you understand the preventative and protective changes we are making, following guidelines from Safe Work Australia, State Governments, and the Federal Government. This brochure will evolve alongside guidelines and member needs.
Hub Australia is a member of the Workplace Operator Readiness Council (WORC), a global council of workplace operators who share, coordinate, and develop information for advancements towards safe and healthy workplaces.
Maintaining a Healthy and Safe Workspace
Hand sanitiser available at all entry points, welcome desks, in kitchens and throughout key areas across the clubhouse.
High-frequency touchpoint cleaning focused on entry points, handles, taps, dishwashers, communal appliances, lift buttons and railings, welcome desk and concierge area chairs, phone booths, bathrooms, and end-of-trip facilities, in addition to our normal rigorous cleaning regime.
Disinfectant wipes are available, allowing members to wipe areas and equipment before and after use.
Designated floor signage stipulating 1.5m social distancing at welcome desks, in-house cafés, and member kitchens.
Members must observe physical distancing and occupancy limits.
Our dedicated in-house teams will work with members to adjust desk spacing where possible and offer additional seating points where necessary.
Continued availability of a wide range of breakout spaces and flexible work areas, allowing members to work whilst respecting social distancing.
Installation of signage throughout clubhouses and offices as a reminder of key hygiene and distancing measures.
Community, Amenities, and Events
Meeting spaces have temporarily reduced capacity, highlighted by signage, and catering is not available.
All onsite events remain on hold (eg: Hub Talks, Breakfast Club, Wine Down) and have been replaced with a virtual event schedule until we can safely resume in-person events with altered protocol for added safety and hygiene.
Hub Australia has provided members access to complimentary Zoom business upgrades and established an exclusive Slack channel to facilitate clubhouse and nationwide connections.
Virtual office memberships have been launched, offering premium business addresses, discounted day passes, mail forwarding, online communities, member perks, and more.
What Your Return to Hub Might Look Like
Many businesses created their own initial solutions and responses to COVID-19’s impact, with many adopting distributed teams, flexible agreements, and a host of digital tools.
Expanded work hours, operating in ‘shifts’ or staggering staff's return to the office.
Using fewer seats in an office to allow space, and instead making use flexible spaces, in-house cafés, and breakout areas.
Encouraging at-risk team members to work from home.
