Clearing the path for a safe return to the workplace
Eventually, the pandemic will end and workplaces will reopen. But work will be different for almost everyone. Agile, distributed, “anywhere, anytime” workplaces will become the norm rather than the exception.
As organizations navigate myriad challenges over the coming months, returning their employees to the workplace will require careful planning and execution. That was the central theme in a presentation by Jeffrey Gore, senior director of product management at ServiceNow.
Following the release of ServiceNow’s COVID-19 emergency response apps, we recently announced new “safe workplace” apps that will help companies adapt as they gradually allow workers back into corporate spaces. These include:
- Employee readiness surveys
- Employee health screenings
- PPE inventory management
- Workplace safety managemen
- Safe workplace dashboards
As Gore explained, these apps support two related but different objectives—workplace readiness and workforce safety. In these trying times, it’s essential to give employees the right digital experience. “You must have the agility to respond to change,” Gore said. “We also understand what we don’t know. This is going to be a very complicated and iterative process for organizations to go through.”
Returning workers as safely, quickly, and efficiently as possible seems like a great first step.
