2021 Facilities Management
Virtual Master Class:
Rethinking Facilities Post-Pandemic
March 4, 2021 | 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern | Virtual
When the COVID-19 virus started making headlines at the start of 2020, American observers watched as the disease spread throughout the globe and started impacting specific regions of the United States. As the numbers of domestic infections continued to grow, some organizations decided to close their offices and asked staff to work remotely.
Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed across the United States, employers and employees alike can breathe a sigh of relief. There is an end in sight to the COVID-19 pandemic! But as employers weigh whether to force mandatory vaccination, another issue should be top of mind: how to keep workers safe in the actual work environment.
Returning to business as usual without adequate precautions in place could erase progress in containing the virus and damage employees’ trust. As businesses reopen, social distancing and other preventive measures are more important than ever to prevent a resurgence of cases.
But that’s not all! Employees and customers are both fearful of going back to work. As a facilities manager, you should be updating your emergency preparedness plans and communicating them to your team; this way, you can alleviate anxiety and confusion before welcoming workers back into the office.
Most importantly, while reopening can have numerous moving parts, don’t wait to rethink your emergency preparedness plans. By doing the work now, you can help save lives and ensure business continuity should an incident arise, and what better way to prepare now than by attending our brand-new virtual master class, 2021 Facilities Management Virtual Master Class: Rethinking Facilities Post-Pandemic?
