2024: The Year of Return to the Office and the Rising Need for Tailored Display Screen Equipment Assessments

As we journey deeper into 2024, we’re witnessing a significant trend: the return to the office. This shift is redefining workplaces and bringing new challenges for HR managers, facilities managers, and office teams. The Covid-19 pandemic abruptly ushered in a ‘work from home’ culture, and in the years that followed, hybrid working was embraced by many businesses and quickly became the norm. This transitional phase brought to the forefront the critical need for updated and comprehensive Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessments, a realm where DSE Assessments Ltd. has been pioneering for over 10 years. Now, it seems more businesses are encouraging the return to the traditional office environment. And as we return to the office, it’s crucial to reassess and update our Display Screen Equipment (DSE) practices to ensure employee wellbeing and compliance with the latest standards set by theHealth & Safety Executive (HSE).

Mental health and working remotely

The pandemic’s impact was profound, leading many companies to downsize premises and adopt hot-desking as a way to facilitate hybrid working and present crucial cost savings. These changes, while economically sound, brought unique ergonomic challenges. Employees who spent a significant time away from traditional office setups might find returning to the office challenging, especially if their health or physical conditions have changed. This situation calls for a new approach to workstation solutions and Display Screen Equipment assessments - one that is flexible, comprehensive, and tailored to the diverse needs of modern business models.

The past few years have been a journey of adaptation and learning. While working from home offered flexibility, it also blurred the lines between personal and professional life.
