For companies and corporate professionals alike, resuming work from the office in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic is not a simple task. Merely announcing a reopening or "back to the office" date and hoping for "business as usual" is not a realistic goal. The repercussions of the pandemic will be felt by many workplaces initially. Additionally, certain changes, such as a hybrid work system may be the long term plan, even with the wide availability of vaccination options.
The specific details of each organization's plan for returning to the office will be different, but there are certain factors that will remain the same across the corporate world.
As per the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) guidelines on COVID-19 safety measures at the workplace, it is mandatory for companies to have a complete update on their team members' vaccination status and COVID-19 infection history. This is a prerequisite for all organizations across the board, for them to be able to call employees back to the workplace.
Collecting the relevant data for the entire organization is not an easy feat for anyone. With tools like Google Forms and other mass survey offerings, the process is cumbersome and time consuming. The tools at the disposal of HR managers makes calling employees back to the office a labour-intensive task, when it should be simple!
