3/4/21 COVID-19 Brief: From Crisis to Recovery – Making the Pivot

While we are not yet out of the woods with respect to the pandemic, most companies now see clearly what they must do in terms of employee vaccination and prevention measures going forward. While we will continue to monitor news on the Covid-19 front and will publish special alerts if needed to provide insights or guidance, we are going to begin focusing our educational messaging on what companies need to do as they recover from the crisis.

A Message on COVID-19 from WorkSTEPS Medical Director Dr. Ben Hoffman

From Crisis to Recovery – Making the Pivot

It Has Been an Honor

Over the course of the past year, this e-newsletter has become a key source of up-to-date information and management insight for companies struggling at first to understand, then respond to, and ultimately plan to overcome the pandemic. Feedback we’ve received along the way has been both humbling and inspiring.

Pivot to Recovery

While we are not yet out of the woods with respect to the pandemic, most companies now see clearly what they must do in terms of employee vaccination and prevention measures going forward. While we will continue to monitor news on the Covid-19 front and will publish special alerts if needed to provide insights or guidance, we are going to begin focusing our educational messaging on what companies need to do as they recover from the crisis.

Important questions face employers who return employees to work where they will be expected to resume operations at full speed. Just one example: Can an employee who contracted Covid-19 and who may be suffering ongoing symptoms safely return to their former job? Addressing these and other questions will be our focus over the next several months.

A New Cadence

For the past several months, we’ve been issuing Covid-19 Briefs on a weekly basis. Going forward, we plan to publish monthly and will communicate off-cycle if needed to address emerging issues in a timely way.

Let Us Know What’s On Your Mind

Over the next several weeks, we will be refining our communication/education priorities. If there are issues you are grappling with that you’d like us to address, click here to let us know.

On behalf of my colleagues at WorkSTEPS, it has been an honor to be among the sources of information you’ve trusted through these challenging times.
