Return-To-Work Protocol Development -

With COVID, many people moved to working-from-home as much as possible. Some companies have decided to allow employees to continue working from home, whereas others are planning to bring their employees back to the office when the ‘all clear’ is sounded. If your employees will be returning to the workplace it is essential to be prepared when the return-to-work happens:

  • What does that look like for your company and how will you maneuver it?
  • Will everyone just flock back to the office or will it occur in stages?
  •  What kinds of rules will stay in place and what will go back to normal or the in-between?  Rules about sickness, masks, distancing, disinfecting, time off, job sharing, and vacations could all be at issue.

If it seems like a lot to think about, let us help!  We can review your current processes and your COVID processes, help you decide where you want to be, and how to get there.  We can write new policies and procedures and help with any training you may need.  Let us take the load off so you can keep moving forward and making your company successful.

File System Clean-Up / Organization -

Are you tired of looking for files and not finding them because they all over the place?  Do you wish you could get yourself and your team organized?  Let us work with you to understand what is important and how you would like to see it organized.  Then we’ll do the hard work no one else wants to do. We can do one or more of the following:

  • Filter and Sort the files, determine the latest and greatest, and get them to the optimal location.
  • Write Procedures to explain to your team how to maintain the file system and keep it orderly.
  • Provide Training to ensure everyone understands and sees the benefits of being organized.

When we’re done with your file system clean-up project everything will have a place and you will be able to find what you are looking for with ease.
