I was speaking to a CEO friend of mine last week who was working from home. She explained that her company had several positive Covid-19 cases, so the company had made the decision for all employees to quarantine and work remotely.
Such is the case for many companies who are looking out for the welfare of their employees and their families. At the same time, these organizations are struggling with keeping continuity in the business and meeting the needs of their customers.
The reality is, it does not have to be this way. The threats that Covid-19 brings do not have to disrupt your business and does not have to impact your employees. You can open your doors and keep your employees safe at the same time.
An October study conducted by Wakefield Research revealed the following:
- 90% of employees miss their workplace
- 94% of respondents stated they wanted to spend at least one day per week back in the office
While these statistics show the eagerness of employees to return to normal, the study also reveals how they feel about their own safety in light of Covid-19. The study found the following:
- 73% of Americans are afraid of putting their personal health and safety at risk by returning to the workplace
- 75% said they would quit their jobs if the Covid-19 prevention measures by employers were inadequate or inappropriate.
This presents quite the conundrum for business leaders who are looking to ensure their business is running at full capacity while making sure they have taken every measure to provide a safe and secure work environment.
The answer does not have to be shutting down your place of business and for many this is simply not an option as this would be the end of the business and create job loss.
