OCT 2021. Cersanit ensures social distancing with remote desk bookinG

Cersanit is the company behind sanitary ceramic products and tiles in many European homes. The Polish brand opened its Russian operations in 2002. Today, the company in Russia has three factories and more than 1,800 employees. It manufactures every product imaginable for bathroom comfort. To ensure business continuity during COVID19, the company launched remote desk booking via Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, enabling employees to work safely by adhering to social distancing.

 

Enabling social distancing When quarantine measures were eased, Cersanit planned for a gradual return to the office. Management wondered how they could ensure social distancing in an open-plan room packed with 200 desks. Even if people worked at different times, they’d still sit too close to each other. ALW Group, Cersanit’s IT partner, suggested using Workspace Booking Manager 365 developed by ALW to solve this problem. The program was adopted and integrated with Microsoft SharePoint and Teams, to manage bookings of work desks. “We went from having fixed workstations to hot desks during the pandemic. Everyone found it convenient,” says Starodubtsev. Employees can view all available desks in Teams and book their place with a click of a button. Staff can easily find the workstation they would like, with the layout on Teams being identical to the actual office. The system also automatically disables occupied desks and those placed too close by graying them out. Employees can make and cancel bookings and receive notifications on a mobile phone. “The solution has allowed them to work in the office safely with social distancing,” explains Starodubtsev.
