Farewell to Gummy Bear Jars: Tech Offices Get a Virus Safety Makeover – The New York Times
Companies like Salesforce created workplaces with all the comforts of home. But now they may feel more like hospitals.
When employees at Salesforce, the cloud software giant based in San Francisco, eventually return to their office towers, they may find that the fun is gone from their famously fun-loving workplaces.
No more chatting in the elevator. No hugging. No more communal snack jars.
Before employees can even go into the office, they will be required to fill out online health surveys and take their temperature. If they pass the health screening and have a good reason to go in, Salesforce will schedule their shifts — and send them digital entry tickets for the lobby with an arrival time.
In the lobby, employees will be asked to wait for the elevator on social-distancing floor markers and stand on other markers once inside the elevator.
