Protecting your employees and community during a crisis

Large organizations are using the WSR solution to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by giving employees a platform to confidentially report any COVID-related issues. Using this information, they can take proactive measures to stop the spread of the virus.

It also helps strengthen workforce communities in a time of need with employee peer-to-peer support. Easily match employee volunteers with coworkers in need of assistance—delivering groceries, offering a ride, or helping with children at home.

Helping your workforce return to a new normal

As a crisis situation starts to return to a new normal, human resource and crisis management teams must plan to return the workforce safely to the workplace. These transitions are complex.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure people are productive and safe in the workplace, organizations will need to consider concerns such as:

  • Individual employee health and risk screenings.
  • Whether an employee's role can be done remotely.
  • Corporate policies.
  • A variety of national and regional government regulations.

The WSR solution helps ease your employees back into your offices and facilities, safely and with minimal disruption. Through a safe, phased approach you can determine which locations can get back to work first, while following local government regulations and reducing risk.

What does the Workforce Safety and Readiness solution provide?

The WSR solution offers a wide-range of capabilities to give organizations the ability to respond to crisis situations and manage the return-to-work process.

A unified command center

The solution establishes a central command center to safeguard the health and safety of employees. Employers can see and manage the health and work status of all employees in real time.

Employee readiness questionnaire report

Fast, easy workforce screening

Employees use a simple web or mobile interface to submit and update personal health and risk data required by local law and corporate policy.

Employee readiness questionnaire

Intelligent return-to-workplace certification

Take advantage of pre-loaded rules that determine when it is safe for your employees to return to the workplace. These rules are influenced by the latest health organization guidelines and government regulations and will determine if an employee can return to work based on their responses to the employee readiness questionnaire. If you need more flexibility, you can even modify the rules based on your organization's policies.
