As quarantine measures begin to ease across America, companies 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 and identifying which employees can return to the office
- Workplace considerations, including how to configure offices, labs, and factories as well as when and how to open or close them
- Program governance to ensure adherence to protocols and transparent communication

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.
