As the nation is preparing to return to the workplace, we gathered a few articles, checklists, and one-sheets to consider. The four guiding principles in strategic and tactical recovery efforts when reopening your practice:
The safety of employees, visitors, contractors, and the general public must guide all strategic and tactical decisions
Public health organizations (e.g., the World Health Organization, various global Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) and governmental agencies should guide organizations’ planning and implementation
Returning employees to the workplace requires expertise from across organizations – from Line of Business Leaders, to Finance, to Health, Safety & Environment (HSE), to Human Resources (HR), to CRE&F, and more
Stay ready to adapt and respond. Even in workplace environments that have reopened, new exposure concerns have arisen. Be prepared with appropriate protocols and if necessary, to reinstate full or partial work-from-home regimes at a moment’s notice
Reopening the office and practice will require rethinking the daily experience for all employees and staff. Setting clear protocols for how everything in the office will operate will be crucial to managing expectations for employees.Recognize that it’s impossible to think of every single factor that could arise. Encourage employees and staff to use sound judgment and invite them to share ideas and encounters when they lack guidance. Regularly update your policies and protocols to ensure use of the office is happening with the utmost regard to safety.
