As we continued to navigate the various stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, the teams at Tsebo have been hard at work designing cost-effective, agile workplace solutions to assist our clients to increase control over operations while ensuring compliance with prevailing COVID-19 emergency legislation and avoiding office and desk occupation saturation.
