Practical solutions to develop your COVID Compliant Strategy


Many organisations have found employees can be productive away from the office. Remote working and collaboration technology proved they could deliver when managed effectively, even with minimal preparation time of your technology and staff.

There may even be increased productivity and efficiency from employees, in addition to other benefits including reduced costs, travel time and CO2 footprint. The UK Government has now begun a slow, phased easing of restrictions, attempting to restart the economy and society but maintaining social distancing. The unique pro-active monitoring and pre-emptive servicing, combined with field and desk-side support, delivers unrivalled uptime.

We have developed a range of post-lockdown solutions that satisfy your priorities across all 3 environments.

Enhance home working environment

Field-based employees whose role is delivering services or supporting clients and are less document dependent could be based at home and commute to clients from there.

Consistent office & home experience

Previously office-based, employees who are highly dependent or ‘power users’ of documents and systems may be most effective splitting their time between home and the office.

Prepare your office for staff to return

You may be keen get the employees who really cannot perform their role fully at home back into your offices or buildings full-time to maximise their effectiveness.


Prepare your office for staff to return

The safety of your employees has to be your first priority as you plan to re-open any offices or buildings. For that reason the key objective is to SENSITISE for reopening safely. Gearing the business back-up needs to be balanced with the practicalities of how to make the buildings safe and Covid compliant with social distancing and minimal contact with surfaces. Minimising the number of employees in the office each day with a greater proportion of Hybrid and WFH employees will support this.

Priorities include:

  • Enhance technology to minimum home-office standards for business
  • Keep productive and minimise disruption with pro-active support
  • Supplement with outsourcing fulfilment services on demand
  • Provide self-service facility to source other items cost-effectively
 

Consistent office & home experience

HYBRID employees are highly dependent or ‘power users’ of documents and systems will split their days between working from home and in the office. The enforced lockdown showed home working is viable but as a future strategy, there must be no downside or loss of productivity on the days when Hybrid workers do work at home.The key objective for Hybrid is to STANDARDISE the home working technology so it provides the same performance, security and support as if they were in the office.

Priorities include:

  • Upgrade home technology to professional office standards
  • Integrate with office workflows and business process applications/li>
  • Managed service support so Hybrid worker’s productivity is maintained
  • Supplement with outsourcing fulfilment services on demand
 

Enhance home working environment

Field-based employees whose primary role is to deliver services or support at client locations, or who are generally less document dependent could be based at home and commute to clients. They do not need the same technology performance as Hybrid workers but they need to be able to work efficiently. The key objective is to OPTIMISE their remote productivity by ensuring their work is not impacted by sub-standard equipment designed for domestic use, and is not suitable for business use.

Priorities include:

  • Safety first for all employees by spreading out technology
  • Supplement limitations in the office with 3rd party services
  • Minimise physical contact with automated workflows and 'touchless printing'
  • Short-term compromise to gear business back up safely
