Return to workplaces while protecting your people

Spatial Computing depth sensing 3D cameras for social distance

Manage social distancing and restore trust and engagement

Businesses need to restart processes and implement solutions for managing social distancing in the workplace while restoring the trust and engagement of employees. Guaranteeing the safety and security of their people is of vital importance.

Technological, organizational & awareness solutions can support companies in ensuring social distancing between people, in compliance with their privacy and inline with the regulations adopted by the different countries. In this context, Reply can support organisations in the definition of a new set of rules to be adopted in the “back to business” phase and to increase the level of employee awareness and trust.

Finding ways of enforcing physical distancing guidelines in public spaces or within a company will be critical for many industries to return to operating at a new normal while keeping the Covid-19 metrics at a tolerable level. Even if there is no turn-key manual for successfully running a business during an unprecedented crisis, Reply has designed and tested a number of solutions to support companies and organizations in overcoming different business challenges while maintaining social distancing and the security of its workforce.

Technologies can help with social distancing

Spatial Computing depth-sensing 3D cameras and other sensors could help organizations to manage social distancing and security. Spatial Computing can be applied in many ways. It can be used to automate temperature measurements of individuals entering a facility or workspace, ensure individuals are wearing the required Personal Protective Equipment correctly in public spaces, offices, production facilities and other areas or to analyze behaviors in real-time to ensure social distancing rules are being applied correctly.

Define a reintegration strategy to deliver a positive employee experience

Delivering a positive workplace reintegration experience for employees is key. Communicating the change should be done with the employee experience in mind.

Businesses who think of their Covid-19 workplace reintegration strategy as not only a necessary process, but also a unique opportunity to deliver a positive employee experience will set themselves apart. Taking employee’s needs as well as specific Covid-19 workplace plans into account, organizations need to identify opportunities to communicate the changes, delivering a positive and safe workplace reintegration. Communications need to address three fundamental needs that are at play for most people in the current situation:

The need to feel safe: people need to feel reassured that the company has taken every precaution to keep people safe and protected them.

The need to belong: people need to feel welcome in the workplace, that their presence is wanted and valued and that there is a benefit for them to be there.

The need for simplicity and clear messaging: right now people don’t have the capacity for complex or detailed messaging, they need companies to tell them only what they need to know.
