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.
In our toolkit, we provide a Return to Work Checklist, Solutions Matrix, Pre-screen Questions, and an Absence & Illness log for your organization to utilize.
Return to Work Checklist: A reference guide to assist your organization as you plan a framework to return. We utilized our findings and other company's best practices to create this checklist.
Solutions Matrix: Should an incident within your team occur, this template informs employees, management, and human resources about your organization's protocols and next steps.
Pre-screen Questions: A sample questionnaire to utilize for pre-screening employees and visitors who require access to your worksite.
Absence & Illness Log: A tracking template for those who may be suspected of, or have a confirmed case of COVID-19. This tool can help trace internal contacts and create plans for an employee's safe return.
