Plan your Return to Work with Covid Signage

by Olivia Watson Printing manager

The Covid-19 pandemic has shaken businesses across the world. The outbreak, along with human life, has affected the world economy badly. The worst sufferers among all this are the small and medium-sized business owners. They have had to revise their product catalog, service offerings, work culture, and business hours altogether. With a stay at home orders being issued all across the globe, these business owners are trying to hold together their roof as they struggle with continuing business operations. While some have reduced their business hours, some have allowed their employees to remotely work from home and others are planning a return to the workplace as their regions are slowly easing out the restrictions.

Returning back to work

After a long haul, states slowly allow some movement in certain regions and this now opens up your possibility of expecting business. You can gradually expect your customers to visit your store and employees to return back to work. However, since these had been uncertain times for all of us, you cannot expect things to be normal right from day one. People will be skeptical about returning back to their workstations.  They might not want to leave the comfort of their homes and get exposed to the unknown. The same customers who would visit your store with sheer enthusiasm, might now just prefer ordering online. So, it is time that you plan your return to work environment in a way that your employees and customers feel safe in your office and store. The best way of doing this is by using return to work signs.

Planning reopening your office using return to work graphics

Covid signage for office is a great way to communicate with your people that your store is absolutely safe for them to visit and for work. Through these signs for return to work, you can send messages to your employees on a regular basis regarding Covid-19 updates and basic hygiene measures. Social distancing signs can encourage your employees and visitors to maintain the recommended distance from one another. Signs for office can periodically send out the important government and local updates that are shared by your government. Your employees are the ones who should inspire your customers and visitors to follow all the Covid-19 related measures in the workplace. They should lead by example. And with right use of office signage, you can ensure that your employees are safe and that important information relating to the outbreak is being communicated to them in a timely manner.

Prepare your business to welcome back customers

We cannot imagine how desperately you have been waiting to welcome your customers back to your store. Now as people are gradually beginning to shift from their lockdown state, you need to grab the attention of your customers soon with quick communication. You can share all your business updates and any recent announcement or news about any product or service introduction by putting signs and posters up in your office backdrop. Simple messages like “Welcome Back” and “Have a great day” work wonders in these stressful times. Your customers, no matter how loyal they are to your brand, would need a certain amount of convincing to do in order to ensure that your workspace is safe for them to return. Social distancing signage, spaced out six feet apart from each other can indicate the distance that they need to maintain among themselves. The Covid signage that you put up across your store and office as you plan your return to work, will instill a sense of confidence in them that you are taking all necessary actions to keep your employees safe. This will assure them that you care for your people. This in turn will give them the confidence to visit your store frequently.

Implement the best practices in your workplace

You can use signs and posters in different areas of your office as you plan to reopen your business but apart from communicating with your people, you need to ensure that you implement these practices in your workplace.  Your employees and customers are the pillars who help you run your business. Therefore, during these times when a life-threatening virus has been affecting millions of lives across the globe, the safety of your people is your responsibility as you draw them back in your workplace and store. You need to ensure that employees who feel sick or are showing the signs of the virus are not reporting to work. You can put up outdoor banners for your visitors asking them to not enter your store if they are feeling unwell. Place hand sanitizers near the high touch surface of your stores for the use of your employees and customers. Keep paper towels and adequately refilled soap in your restrooms. Disinfect your entire office or store at least twice a day.

A lot of details are required to be considered as your plan for your return to work. With proper communication and a few considerations, you can plan this effectively.
