It’s no secret that business models have changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s also no secret that people have changed because of the pandemic. There is a new level of fear that has come with the rapid and extensive widespread reach of the virus. In the beginning, employees feared losing their jobs, employers feared losing their businesses, everybody feared getting sick. Unfortunately, all of the above did happen for many people and businesses. Now, we are in the phases of “reopening” and trying to get back to some level of normality.
The businesses that were fortunate enough to remain open, or fortunate enough to be able to reopen are going to be facing struggles of their own. One major struggle is the human element in bringing employees back to a workplace. Circle back to those fears mentioned before. The fears we had during the pandemic have evolved into fears about the future and the unknown.
Will returning to the office put my health at risk?
Will I be risking the health of my family?
How can I return to work if my children don’t go back to school?
Will there be another shutdown?
How do I even begin reopening my business?
There are no definitive answers for any of these questions, and there may not be for some time. The best we can do is prepare ourselves and our businesses in the best way possible. For you, that may include employer based COVID-19 testing and tracking.
