Webinar | COVID-19: Returning to the workplace - Key issues for employers and dealing with a 'new normal'
As governments around the world begin to ease and adapt their lockdown restrictions, organisations are seeking ways to safely resume operations by allowing their people to physically return to the workplace. This decision must include careful planning and consideration. A number of factors will impact your return to operations strategy including; the local directives, requirements and guidance where your operations are located, the health status of your employees and the readiness of your workplace to receive your people in this new working climate.
