As organizations begin to return from COVID-19, many are wondering how to move forward. After connecting with over 70 companies in various industries regarding their return to work programs, we identified 4 key strategies to consider when creating your organization's return to work program:
- Communication: Developing strong communication plans for internal workers, new hires, and those being recruited.
- Protocols: Improving environmental and facility protocols to protect those on-site.
- Social Distancing Measures: Creating a healthy work environment by limiting opportunities for physical contact.
- Phased Approach: Phasing workers back on-site to resume business operations while minimizing risk and stress for workers.
