What does it take for employers to safely reopen their workplace and bring employees back? Daily health assessments? Routine testing? Staggered scheduling? A full office redesign? Rigorous cleaning protocols? Social distancing requirements? All of the above?

The elements of a safe return-to-work strategy are going to depend on each employer’s unique situation. Some industries will need to embrace stricter measures, as will regions currently considered Covid-19 “hot spots.” One key factor that should be a part of any safety protocol, however, is contact tracing.

“While contact tracing is the responsibility of public health officials in the U.S., they have been stretched too thin to manage the demand in many areas,” writes David Zieg, a partner and clinical services leader at Mercer. “Employers seeking ways to improve worksite safety should consider a contact tracing program—because we know it works.”
