In Employee Monitoring

The onset of the Covid19 pandemic really threw businesses into disarray; economies from all around the world bear the brunt of it. But even as the threat of this deadly virus recedes and things return to normal, companies still have some difficult challenges to face. Though the lockdown is being lifted there are many rules and regulations issued by the government, which need to be followed diligently.

Businesses need to adapt to this new situation quickly, wherein they have to function with minimum employees onsite to reduce the risk of contact. Return to work strategies need to be planned to start operations while ensuring the safety of the workers. It is now up to the management teams to guide their companies through these tough times without affecting productivity.

Safety Measures Expected

It is important to make the work environment feel safe so that employees can retain a sense of normalcy as work is resumed. The topmost priority of the management should be employee safety, as they are counting on the company to keep them safe. Another thing the management needs to remember to understand Covid19 compliance with the local orders as well.

Following new protocols means making changes in the schedules and layout of the workspace. Maintaining social distancing, limiting the number of people in particular areas, special focus on cleaning and sanitizing are some of the basic guidelines. Personal safety measures would include protective equipment like face masks and gloves, and checking temperatures of any individual entering the company premises.

Current Challenges

Though it may sound simple enough, following all the safety and hygiene protocols while reviving the business may not be as easy. To figure out how to fight these issues as you return to work, it is necessary to know what they entail.

Considering the current scenario, manpower safety is undeniably the most important and challenging task. Ensuring that the employees and contractors are at their designated locations at all times and are maintaining sufficient distance won’t be easy. A lot of times accidents can occur when a person is in a location they are not authorized to be in. Following social distancing protocols everywhere, especially in enclosed spaces like washrooms and elevators is essential. The task of supervising over the employees at all such times could be something of a nightmare. But real-time updates on such trespassing are not currently available.

Without proper maintenance of personal hygiene, companies can be at risk of infection. It is difficult to track if a person has washed their hands properly at regular intervals. Regulating the health of individuals is also not possible currently as the thermal temperature scanning cannot be recorded against the person.

Given the ever-evolving nature of technology, we can certainly leverage it in this situation as companies return to work. To help us face these challenges in the industries in a much easier way. So how will it work?
