Following COVID-19, creating return-to-work strategies that comply with ever changing rules and regulations presents a unique set of challenges for many companies. This is especially true for firms who have offices across the world and must therefore comply with multiple jurisdictions. As a result, BRYTER have created an automated tool that helps firms easily navigate government guidelines, track workforce health and gather important employee feedback.
The global COVID-19 pandemic forced governments worldwide to establish virus- control demands and lockdown measures. For many industry sectors, the virus has had severe implications about how businesses operate and work on a day-to-day basis. Consequently, many have had to quickly adopt new remote working policies and technologies – or discontinue operations altogether. To revive the economy after months of interruptions and to bolster employee mental well-being, recent governmental efforts aim to bring employees back into the office with strict safety guidance and restrictions. However, in the creation return-to-work strategies many companies still struggle to navigate these guidelines and require further guidance on how to implement new rules and regulations. Companies must also maintain a level of efficiency and cause minimal disturbance to employees, while ensuring their safe return to the office. Lastly, while action must be taken quickly, this new way of working is here to stay, and as such, leadership must ensure return-to-work strategies also take a long-term view.
With BRYTER, companies can create a digital Return-to-Work Navigator that allows businesses to assess which requirements apply based on their location, size and sector and the type of work individual groups of employees conduct. Based on the information gathered by the Return-to-Work Navigator, law firms can provide auto-generated guidance and policies that are tailored to the client’s needs and business specifications. From creating and distributing a safety plan to providing digital training to employees, companies receive tailored guidance and tools to ensure full compliance with government requirements. As part of the solution, businesses can track the results of employee health screenings, office distribution and employee training in real time, which in turn informs the overall health and safety score of the workforce. Having all this information in one place allows businesses to adapt to changes in employee health, plan and react to any health risks quicker than traditional assessment methods allow.
How it works
Identify compliance and health risks
Through a customizable, user-friendly and interactive questionnaire, all relevant data is collected and processed. It enables companies to assess internal policies against the respective governmental guidance and to generate automated triaging and documentation. Employees can easily undertake daily health screenings to identify health risks early for a safer working environment.
Assess identified risks
A risk profile is generated from the initial assessment, flagging certain risks and providing recommendations for mitigation. The risk assessment can be intertwined with other processes (email, approvals, etc.) and document generation to streamline incident responses.
A dashboard allows to track and drive mitigation efforts and to document all incidents. This allows companies to provide employees with instant guidance and also offers metrics on overall risk reduction.
