Transitioning Back into the Workplace
As cities, businesses, and life slowly start to navigate the new social world as we now know it, how will your organization manage it? Arguably, there is no perfect answer. Companies should follow the necessary guidelines, but every operational process is different. What works for your company and your employees may not work for another.
Here are a few beginning, tangible areas you should think about:
- Remote work, where and when it makes sense
- Flexible work hours with set deadlines
- Working from home and shifting into rotating set schedules at the office
- Technological advancements in your organization for customers or clients to replace in-person meetings
- Innovative leadership and comradery from afar by creatively ensuring employee engagement
- Professional development while providing channels where there can be continual learning from digital conferences, and webinars to online programs/courses
Every employee’s home situation is different, and it is in each company’s best interest for managers/supervisors to understand what works best for their employees. Moving forward, some organizations may deem it unnecessary for employees to go into the office every day of the week, and partial or permanent remote work may simply work.
