Unfortunately, there are no universal guidelines or help books for reopening a company during a global pandemic. Every company faces the overwhelming task of reducing the risk in meeting rooms, on factory floors, in storefronts, etc to guarantee protection for all its staff and customers.
Companies should resume sensibly, monitor cleverly, and continue to safeguard with solutions for a safer workplace environment. You need to make sure to provide facility leaders and task force chiefs with the training they need in order to make educated decisions and carefully reopen their sites.
Earlier this year at the Microsoft Inspire event, Microsoft launched a new Power Platform return to workplace solution to assist customers in safely planning their return to the workplace. These end-to-end parts were created for quick operation and customization and provide location ease and safety tools for facility managers, self-service health and safety tools for employees, and case management tools for health and safety leaders.
This Power Platform return to workplace pre-built solution is a complete, end-to-end set of segments that will help companies organize, strategize, and maintain the return to the workplace with the added confidence of guaranteeing the health and safety of your employees. The solution is simply customizable, with rapid deployment, and constructed on a safe and compatible platform. Together, the units provide the end-to-end experience for management, facility managers, staff, as well as health and safety advisers:
- Location Readiness
- Employee Health and Safety Management
- Workplace Care Management
- Location Management
As several areas in UK start to remove their COVID-related limits, Microsoft are continuously seeing a substantial increase in its usage, with over 1,200 customers across more than 50 countries, who have begun to regularly use the solution template.
