‘Changing Workplaces’ programme investigates the impact of COVID-19 across Europe

An in-depth research programme has been launched by Rubbermaid Commercial Products to investigate the complex changes the coronavirus pandemic has spurred in workplaces and facilities across Europe.

‘Changing Workplaces’ programmeThe coronavirus pandemic has ripped up the rulebook on social interaction and established ways of working, with hand hygiene, cleaning and waste management now holding a permanent place in the spotlight.

If businesses are to survive and thrive in an environment where standards and expectations are higher than ever before, it’s important to understand the trends and challenges the market is facing.

With that in mind, hand hygiene, cleaning, waste and recycling solutions manufacturer Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) has developed the ‘Changing Workplaces’ research programme, with the aim to assist organisations with cutting through the fog of confused advice and take control in a rapidly changing world.

Changing Workplaces has launched with a short survey asking people how their facility has evolved its approach to hand hygiene, cleaning waste and recycling since the end of 2019, before the pandemic hit. The survey poses questions including: what changes are here to stay, how have facility users’ demands changed and where do organisations need to raise the bar around cleaning and hygiene in a post COVID-19 world?

RCP will then analyse the results and create a report to provide insights so organisations can benchmark against their sector and benefit from transparent sector-to-sector information sharing to prepare for the future.

The report will reveal where the market really needs support and survey results will shape the advice, education and training provision RCP provides.

Paul Jakeway, Head of Marketing – EMEA, RCP, said: ‘’We urge people to take part in the Changing Workplaces survey, as you will be contributing to a research programme that will provide clarity and enable control by getting under the skin of the challenges we are all set to face in the months and years ahead.

‘’We will analyse the data to produce a report to arm you with the knowledge to make confident decisions that will protect your brand’s reputation for quality with staff, customers and facility users.

‘’The insights we glean will feed our R&D and help us continue to develop timeless hand hygiene, cleaning, waste and recycling solutions that will be relevant and dependable whatever the world looks like in two, ten- or twenty-years’ time.’’

As a further incentive for taking the time to respond, completed surveys will see the respondent entered into a prize draw, with four top prizes to be won, featuring £250 of Amazon vouchers, along with £500 of RCP products and a specialist consultation for the winners’ workplaces. There are also ten runners up prize bundles of £50 Amazon vouchers, £100 of RCP products and workplace consultations.

The Changing Workplaces survey is now open, here.
