More than 65% of Romanian employees consider their office to be only partially safe for health in the context of the pandemic
For nearly three-quarters of respondents to the Genesis Property survey, a healthy building protects people's health through complex sanitary measures, and more than two-thirds believe that the health of a building is primarily based on air and water filtration systems.
First IMMUNE-Resilient Office Building in the World Unveiled
With the IMMUNE™ Digital Twin Display, a digital mirror of the building, occupants can access immunity-boosting indicators such as daily improvements of indoor air quality, carbon dioxide or humidity levels and other relevant data about the IMMUNE™ equipment throughout the building at all times.
Almost 88% of employees in Romania believe that offices will exist in the future, but most say that the post-pandemic workspace needs to be transformed
The office of the future will be a place of complex, multi-level human interaction, supporting innovative actions with great added value. Of course, people are also waiting for sanitary measures to mitigate the effects of the pandemic, measures that we have included in The IMMUNE Building Standard™ in order to offer them trust and peace of mind.

After the pandemic, 45% of employees expect a full return to office life. For another 35%, the working model of the future is hybrid
No matter how we will work after the pandemic, the office where we will spend at least a few days a week must be prepared to mitigate health risks. To feel safer in the office, employees want high-performance systems to improve the air and water quality in the building, sanitary materials to be distributed immediately when needed, sanitizing systems and well-established procedures in case of illness in the company.

A year into the pandemic, almost 55% of employees are working partially or exclusively from the office
"Although 2020 has been challenging in many ways, today people are feeling a little more optimistic than they were in the first few months of the pandemic. Health protection measures implemented in office buildings, many of them recommended by IMMUNE™, have made an important contribution to regaining confidence, albeit partial, along with progress of vaccinating the population."
36% of employees think they will return to the office in 2021, along with the entire team. The office of the future - more security, less routine and a platform for creativity
While proximity of the office to their home remains an important factor for most employees (65%), the pandemic year increased the importance of health measures taken in the building (for 51% of respondents) and of the workspace structure, with greater emphasis on delimited offices that facilitate distancing (for 49.3% of respondents).
6 in 10 employees want more health protective measures in their office building
Among the most important measures that would support employees to return and feel safer in the office are more efficient air and water filtration systems in the building (58.3%), better hygiene systems in restrooms (41.6%) and more efficient solutions to ensure social distancing (40.4%). These are part of the complex set of measures recommended by IMMUNE™.
