Your Challenge

  • Reducing potential disruption to business operations through employee absenteeism and travel restrictions.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Communication of facts and definitive action plans from credible leaders is the key to maintaining some stability during a time of uncertainty.
  • Remote work is no longer a remote possibility – implementing alternative temporary work arrangements that keep large groups of employees from congregating reduce risk of employee exposure and operational downtime.
  • Pandemic travel protocols are necessary to support staff and their continuation of work while traveling for business and/or if stuck in a high-risk, restricted area.

Impact and Result

  • Assign accountability of key planning decisions to members of a pandemic response team.
  • Craft key messages in preparation for communicating to employees.
  • Cascade communications from credible sources in a way that will establish pandemic travel protocols.
