There is much to consider when deciding when and how to invite employees to return to their offices following the COVID-19 pandemic. Though timing and specifics of reintegration plans will vary based upon geography and the unique needs of one’s company, organizations must look holistically at how return to work decisions will impact productivity, efficiency, engagement, culture, collaboration, connectivity, and more. They must also consider the range of emotions that employees will be feeling regarding this experience.
Understanding that there are practical, logistical and operational issues that must be taken into consideration, SmithGroup’s Workplace Practice has developed a reintegration framework that will enable those responsible for reopening their offices to plan effectively. Centered around the employee experience, this framework allows companies to reimagine their workplaces in a holistic way while ensuring employee safety and wellbeing remain a top priority.
