Lockers in an office

Post-lockdown Locker Situation

We’re sending COVID back to school with our new lockers! In preparation for a return to the office, we have installed a personal closet arrangement that takes us back in time. The ITbuilder crew are returning to the office in small numbers this week.

Each team member parks themselves in a designated desk, evenly spread out through the office. Our new ‘clear desk policy’ states that staff must clear down their workstation at the end of every shift. The sharing of keyboards, mice and headsets is strictly prohibited. All personal equipment mustn’t be left lying around, but what to do with it all then?

Lockers in the office environment serve as an essential organizational asset, offering employees a secure and personal space to store their belongings. These storage units not only promote a clutter-free workspace but also enhance security and privacy, ensuring the safety of personal items and sensitive documents.

By encouraging employees to use lockers, the office can maintain a clean and professional appearance, leading to a more organized and efficient work environment. Furthermore, lockers can foster a sense of ownership and personal space, promoting employee satisfaction and well-being. Employees can store their personal items, such as bags, coats, and valuable belongings, without the concern of them being misplaced or damaged. With various sizes and configurations available, lockers can cater to the diverse needs of the workforce, contributing to a harmonious and productive office culture.


Office lockersJames Gray hit upon on the idea of individual lockers to make desk clutter a thing of the past – genius! We love the eighties swimming-baths vibe they bring to the place {No heavy petting!) and even managed to find a colour that picks out our wall-art.

Who said that COVID-safe procedure planning is all dull and boring?
