Abstract: The COVID-19 has resulted in over 110 million and 2.45 million deaths globally. The introduction of social distancing, self-isolation and travel restrictions could be a catalyst for the new norm at the workplace, forcing the majority of the employees to shift to remote working during the pandemic. This paper aims to investigate the factors affecting an employee’s attitudinal change towards returning to the physical workplace. This is crucial in creating a pandemic-safe workplace for employees in the future as the global community navigate this crisis towards recovery and reopening. A mixed-method of an online survey and a semi-structured interview was conducted. With an in-depth analysis, the Safe@Work prototype was developed to facilitate successful returning to the physical workplace in the post-COVID-19 era. Research findings suggested that the factors identified can significantly affect employee’s willingness in returning to the workplace. Fear of infection remained as one of the main concern in employees. Apart from ensuring safety and hygiene in future workplaces, proper communication with employees and adopting smart technology should be considered to better support employee’s well-being. The physical workplace remained essential as Singapore is gradually shifting towards recovery and re-opening, The demand for physical workplaces are likely to be re-ignited, further emphasizing the need to create a pandemic-safe workplace for all employees.
