DVI Communications’ Return-to-Work Services Post-COVID

The coronavirus COVID-19 has put the modern workplace in turmoil with short- and long-term implications for management as well as employees. Although remote working and work-from-home has demonstrated its effectiveness, there is a growing need for many companies to facilitate a return to the office for the workforce. From Facilities Managers, to Risk Managers, HR staffs, Corporate Legal Counsel, and up to COOs and CFOs, stakeholders are aware of the serious challenges of the ongoing return-to-work initiative. Management may need to:

• Optimize limited resources to sanitize the workspace and common areas

• Protect employees by methods such as temperature screening, office scheduling, meeting room usage and occupancy tracking

• Monitor and encourage social distancing in what were previously-dense work environments by utilizing centralized monitoring and dashboards

• Enhance the environment such as by increasing outside air usage and adjust temperature

• Enhance employees’ perception of working in a safe environment coupled with the need to minimize COVID-19 spread

• ‘Transform’ the business posture to make use of optimized processes, people, and office space

• Comply with return to work rules and regulations instituted by local and/or national jurisdictions.

Assesment of Critical Business Processes

 

Development of a Post-COVID-19 Strategy

Central Hub (HQ) with Distributed Regional Offices

• Identify Locations (e.g., Office Buildings, Hotels)

• Suitability: -> Physical (e.g., low rise structure, parking, highway access, food sources, cleaning services); and -> Technological (e.g., Wi-Fi, site security; conferencing capabilities/video) 

Staff Relocation (Distributed Regional Offices)

• Based on home location (e.g., “center points” within a specified radius, identifying suitable facilities) • Based on job function (e.g., determine which jobs require collaboration, such as Sales, R&D, etc.; and determine which jobs can function at same level as HQ without collaboration, such as IT, Finance, Legal, Administration)

• Based on available technologies (e.g., power redundancy; high speed Internet access; choices of carriers; carrier/service redundancy; server room facilities; site-provided videoconference rooms) 

Floor Design

• Office (e.g., single occupancy, social distancing, self-contained, protective surroundings/Plexiglas)

• Conference rooms occupancy management

• Access design of one-way walkways

Workstation setup (e.g., requirements based on job function; standardization; security; remote support)

Connectivity and bandwidth (e.g., access facilities, network security; redundancy; video capabilities) 

Data backup & restore (e.g., Data Center vs Cloud)

CHALLENGES & OPPORTUNITY

When people return to the office, they must be able to work safely and to have assurance that their company is concerned about their well-being. Firms need, and, in fact, have the opportunity, to maintain productivity and business focus.
