What’s on the minds of your HR peers? Take a peek at some of the recent FAQs we’ve received from our clients.
Q: How do we prepare to welcome all of our employees and/or clients back into our physical locations safely?
A: We don’t know exactly when things are going to get back to normal, but now is the time to plan. With many jurisdictions still mandating telework and imposing capacity limits, many workforces are primarily remote. For team members and clients who must be on-site, implement a daily self-reporting and building capacity tracking system. Enforce all safety requirements, including masking and social distancing, and clearly and routinely communicate behavioral expectations to your employees. As more employees are able to come back on-site, develop a priority reentry system and consider whether other positions can stay fully or partially remote.
Q: How should we handle our workforce getting the COVID vaccine?
A: Our recommended approach is not to make any vaccines mandatory or take punitive measures. Instead, focus on educating your team about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and share trusted and verified public health resources (like this CDC webpage). That way, when your employees become eligible to receive the vaccine, they will have enough information to make an educated decision.
