Coronavirus (COVID-19): What Can Employers Do?
There are various questions about the Coronavirus — whether the virus can be contained, how lethal it is, and how easily it can be transmitted. This pandemic has undoubtedly become an issue that organizations need to deal with in real-time and ask themselves: “What will we do if it spreads? How can we protect our people? Is there a possibility we need to close our facility? How can we stay connected during the Coronavirus? Do we need to setup remote solutions?” With the increase of confirmed cases within the states and around the world, there is ever-growing anxiety about this virus affecting our lives. Just like everyone else, we’re also concerned about the health of our people and their families and communities.
So, how can we prepare for Coronavirus? As you already know, many Universities, organizations, and institutions have already taken drastic steps into protecting their people by practicing social distancing, enforcing safety and health regulations, and promoting online communication. With over 100 million Americans under stay-at-home-orders, many organizations are in the process of transitioning to only work/learn/function from home.
Organizations are facing a difficult challenge. How can we continue to get work done with our employees working at home? It is clear that the Coronavirus is putting remote work to a gigantic test, and at an unprecedented scale. There is also a growing concern that remote work could drastically reduce productivity and performance.
