As quarantine measures continue to ease across America, government agencies know it’s vital to bring employees back into the workplace. Yet, there are significant challenges with how to safely return staff while following the phases and guidelines outlined by federal, state, and local governments. Although timelines for these phases are in flux, organizations can put strategies in place now to transition employees back into the workplace. These strategies should take into account:
- Risk frameworks, including calculations for re-entry to the workplace based on community threat levels and individual risk estimates
- Technology enablement to support symptom monitoring, contact tracing, tracking vaccination status, and identifying which employees can return to the office.
KPMG LLP (KPMG) and Appian offer a services and technology toolkit that includes these components so you can begin to get your employees back to their work locations in a phased and measured way. This risk-based approach, supported by modern technology, is one way to help iteratively and more safely reopen your workplace while continuing to manage the threat posed by COVID-19.
