In 2021, the whole corporate world’s reality transformed into something that hadn’t been seen before. With as much as 88% of organisations making people work from home, the coronavirus pandemic despairingly forced almost all the office workers to function in a wildly new environment. Fortunately, smart corporate offices soon adapted to this sudden shift in paradigm and became functional remotely.
However, with the steady recovery of 2021 and the promise of cures and vaccines, the pre-covid normalcy is said to return. So, many employees will return back to their offices. And thankfully, with the technological power we command right now, only a few easy steps can guarantee a safe working environment in the near future.
How to create a safe workspace for your employees
1. Always give an alternative to the employees
Even though nothing can replace the on-site experience, remote work is a great option for employees who still feel cautious about stepping outside. Gartner reported an increase of almost 173% in remote work between 2005 and 2018. This made it clear that remote work benefits extend far beyond the restrictions that covid-19 has imposed. If an employee believes that the work assigned to him can be handled from home, they should be allowed to work remotely.
2. Communicate hazards and safety measures
While installing sanitation stations and mandating the use of protective gear is a given, some companies may tend to fail to communicate and impose these measures. Managers should make sure that all the business stakeholders are up to date with the latest safety measures put in position. It is always smart to explain the safety standards at multiple stages. First, you can send out automatic mailers to officials and then hold social-distanced seminars to explain the safety measures with the help of charts and graphs.
Crust’s open-source low-code software comes with various automation features that can help you pass on all the necessary information to your employees. You can also create beautiful and comprehensive charts on the platform to report on safety measures statuses.
3. Eliminate manual work wherever possible
Automation of certain office processes can help save a lot of time for the organisation. And it can as easily eliminate the need for physical interaction between officials and minimize the risks of disease transmission through contact.
Crust comes with a peripheral workflow automation engine called Corredor. Along with ensuring judicious use of human and time resources, the low-code platform also enables you to create apps to facilitate further execution of tasks.
