Return-to-work is imminent and not too far for any. Undoubtedly, the aftermath of the crisis would be complex and also be the greatest challenge which most of the business might have ever seen. Operations are expected to possibly resume normally once the stay home orders are lifted, that too doing everything by keeping the employee safety first.
In such a hapless scenario, employee health is more prior than anything, as Organizations have no existence without them. Following steps to be considered to keep the person and place in good state:
- Open communication with stakeholders and giving due relevance to their physical health.
- Tracking of employee health status and creating heightened awareness on all prominent aspects.
- Gaining employee confidence and employee readiness to get back to space.
- Creating an inclusive work environment
The situation of ambiguity has now redefined work life and work environment. Now, brick-and-motor setup is getting associated more with hygiene and social distancing which will be continued until norms are relaxed. The interpersonal skills and traditional mode of work have taken a back seat at least for a period of time. In fact, it’s undebatable that healthy employee relationships always keeps one motivated and place one away from unproductive steps.
Full office occupancy is a far dream to achieve and organizations having being realized it, are definitely aiming at viable options for the return-to-work. Providing technical support for remote work is what matters now. More to it, using and having various communication platforms to bring employees together is helping the organizations in a great way. At this time, empathetic approach and motivational talks by the employer may create a new face to the company, a new work approach by the employee.
