OPERATING THROUGH TURBULENT TIMES. THE LONG GAME.
The safety of employees and the wider community becomes a primary focus as lockdown measures relax. While no organisation can guarantee preventing the spread of infection, vital precautionary steps will minimise risks, contribute to your Duty of Care responsibilities and promote resilience.
Whatever the circumstances, whether hybrid working, an office, a factory, a retail outlet, a film set, a mine site, an oil rig or an entire community, real-time insights, risk mitigation, ongoing testing and vaccination programmes are key. Beyond this, emphasis needs to be put on tackling misinformation and vaccine hesitancy.
Taking a long-term view of the pandemic, failure to manage chronic diseases and the mental health of employees could signify a backwards step in productivity and could even result in increasing costs overall. In this regard, consider engaging partners that have extensive pandemic management experience, able to implement global programmes and experts who support local capacity building and diversity efforts.
