For countries, businesses and workers around the world, the disruption caused by COVID-19 has presented an unparalleled challenge. But as economies begin to gradually re-open, and businesses re-start their operations, it is important to ensure this is done in a safely manner.
Adjusting to a new reality will necessitate physical distancing and other strict measures. Clear guidelines, processes and protocols must be put in place to support both employees and employers. The health and safety of our colleagues, clients, and associates is our primary concern. Throughout the pandemic, we have supported our colleagues of whom 80% have worked remotely in order to facilitate a safe return to the physical workplace for our clients and candidates when the time is right.
Building on this commitment, and to help other organizations prepare for the post-pandemic world of work, last month the HR services industry formed an Alliance, spearheaded by the Adecco Group, Randstad, and Manpower Group urging other stakeholders such as employers, trade unions, and NGOs to join, and governments to support, stimulate and endorse these efforts.
Through its latest research, the Alliance has developed a fact base and source of best practices which it seeks to share freely as a public good. The goal is for organizations of all types and sizes to use this research to identify and apply the practices that will get them up and running in a safe, healthy and productive way.
As many organisations are currently navigating their way from remote work or suspension of operations to working within the requirements of the new physical distancing economy, the white paper developed by the Alliance offers practical advice and examples of best practices that, if adopted quickly, will benefit both businesses and their workers.
