As government mandated COVID-19 business closures and restrictions are lifted in the coming weeks to reopen the economy, the workplace we return to will not be the same. The 'new normal' will require new regulations, and employee expectations in the workplace will require change.
T&M has been studying how various types of businesses are reopening in places around the globe that were afflicted with COVID-19 before the United States. Lessons learned can be applied to help optimize results and avoid pitfalls. Strategic planning considerations for organizations and businesses include:
Developing policies, procedures and protocols for reopening in the 'new normal'
Establishing physical and architectural mitigation measures that will promote physical distancing and sanitary work environments without compromising safety
Identifying equipment, technology and staffing, such as personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning and sanitizing materials, thermal scanning and screening, and office deep-cleaning services, to promote the health and well-being of employees and visitors to the office
As your organization grapples with these issues, T&M's team of security experts has been helping clients prepare for the transition back to onsite operations by developing and implementing a safe and strategic plan for the return to the physical workplace after the pandemic restrictions begin to ease.
