Getting Back to the Workplace Safely and Responsibly
REINVENTING EMPLOYEE CONFIDENCE
There have been few moments in history where employee safety is as critical as it is today. Employees are your most important asset and keeping them safe is paramount—especially during such an unprecedented time as today.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SAFETY
Employees perform at their best when they feel valued, appreciated, and safe. Yet the notion of psychological safety isn’t a one-size ﬁts all. For instance, in a recent psychological study of healthcare workers, researchers found that non-medical staﬀ were most at risk for PTSD during the Covid-19 pandemic, not the medical staﬀ in direct contact with patients.
Paradoxically, doctors and nurses on the front-lines maintained a greater sense of safety than those lacking direct contact with patients. The study cited a lack of knowledge, understanding, and preparatory awareness as a primary cause for insecurity.
Employees will value their health above all. They need to feel safe before they walk through your doors. And more than safety, employees demand assurance that your return-to-work policies provide adequate protection for the foreseeable future. Empowering employees with this knowledge and support is key.

DEVISING A MAXIMALLY EFFECTIVE RESPONSE PLAN
As we enter a new age of pandemic uncertainty, acting swiftly and intelligently has never been more important. Health challenges are arising at unprecedented levels, constraining business decisions and minimizing workforce production. From stay-at-home orders to state-wide quarantines, employers are asking themselves a most perplexing question: How can we safely return our workforce?
It’s important to understand that these moments are highly variable from one community to the next; no two organizations are experiencing the same challenges. Employees and decision-making staff are interpreting events differently and will respond distinctively. Flexibility and resilience will be key in maintaining operational success, morale, and safety.
You can successfully manage a workforce transition plan with the right team in place.
The following questions are a few considerations when creating a maximally effective response plan:
- How can you ensure the safety of your employees during their initial and subsequent returns to work?
- What protective equipment will be required as you welcome staff back into work-site environments?
- How will you ensure that your new safety guidelines will comply with local and federal regulations for re-entry?
- Will you require management training to maintain optimal employee safety, well-being, and implementation consistency?
- How will you maintain employee distancing to achieve maximal production?
- Will you require revisions to your existing health policies (e.g., building cleaning, sanitizer access, workplace redesign, wellness program)?
- What systems do you have in place to handle incoming employee concerns?
