Mercer | Mettl, Updated July 2, 2020– COVID-19 & The Transition To A Remote Work Setting
To develop a successful return to work plan, a company must assess employee readiness multiple times. Organizations must realize that each employee is going to have a different experience and reaction to the virus and will be at different levels of readiness and willingness to return to the office. Creating and sharing a standardized, agreed-upon, decision matrix and set of protocols to help employers know if and when to reissue a work from home mandate will help ensure everyone feels prepared from a change management perspective should round 2 or 3 of the virus occur and escalate. These protocols will help manage and mitigate the feelings of uncertainty associated with these types of events.
