COVID conversation is a podcast series that strives to bring insights as we move through the challenges employers are facing in this time of uncertainty.
In our first podcast, we are bringing you a conversation between Kate Bravery, Global advisory solutions & insights leader, and Norman Dreger, Partner and multinational client group leader, covering:
"The ongoing threat to public health really does require social distancing. So having teams of coworkers working together in close quarters in an office building with poor ventilation is obviously problematic. So companies are coming up with new approaches - staggered working, different cadences for things like cleaning and rotations, different ways of walking through the office to avoid contact."
"I think there's going to be lasting implications for virtual working and how offices are structured. But there are requirements to make this work. You need a robust technological infrastructure and you need digitized workflows. These are just essential to be successful. And the really good news is that these solutions are out there now and readily available."
