Has anyone started putting together detailed plans on how to reopen physical offices? Having staff coming back to office. What are all the decisions that need to be made and prep that needs to be done?

    Hi Jesse; I haven't talked to anyone progressing that far. Our data is showing many companies will be shifting to more remote work longer term. Here's an article I read recently that outlines a few approaches companies are considering, like staggering shifts to avoid workers being in close proximity: https://www.protocol.com/companies-planning-employee-coronavirus-testing

    Personally, I think testing will have to be more widely available so frequent testing can be factored into the process.

    Hi Jesse,

    We started to meet on this topic on a bi-weekly basis. We're exploring how this will look not only for our customers coming in but also trainers leading in the classroom. There are so many fine details. I am interested to see what others are doing as well.

    We have a global framework that deals with resuming normal operations across three stages that is dependent upon the Covid situation in each locality. That being said,other details are still in process, such as specific cleaning and social distancing regiminess, as well as WFH policies after things resume to "normal".

    IBM published it's "Return to Workplace Playbook". It is a quite detailed and I think applicable for lots of companies, and in addition it is having a global focus: https://newsroom.ibm.com/index.php?s=34178&item=32071
