The road map is grounded in public health guidance and encompasses important considerations around moving from a response to transition phase, then toward a recovery stage once workplace restrictions are lifted in various regions.
“Many organizations are working toward a phased approach to returning to offices during the response to COVID-19,” the document said. “We are partnering with clients to help them navigate a road map for safe return that requires a multifaceted approach to planning and change.”
The guidance includes recommendations on employee readiness, maximum seat capacity, team scheduling scenarios, prioritizing business needs, and remote work. Additionally, recommendations include considerations on physical distancing analysis and office protocols, along with suggested behaviours and messages that should be incorporated into every planning phase to provide a safe, healthy, and resilient return to the office.
