The “opening” has officially started in many countries and regions. However, this restart will take different steps, speeds and shapes depending on the business sector and the evolution of the pandemic.

Companies are eager to rebuild their businesses and go back to normality, which is largely understandable. This situation also raises many questions regarding their employees:  how can they assure their safety in the workplace? how to motivate them and remobilize them?  what do health stipulations mean for organisations? Governments prepared many guides and arduous reports based on experts’ recommendations and extensive analysis of the situation from a labour, organisational and economic perspectives.  

At everis we are convinced that these recommendations, as beneficial and useful as they may be, remain nevertheless generic and standard. They should be anchored in each organisation’s context, timing, and history to have a real impact. And the impact is expected on employees’ well-being, comfort, and safety. Thus, on companies’ performances. It is worth to highlight that all reliable studies and investigations insist on the necessity of human capital in performance, especially in the long term. Employees are indeed the most valuable asset of an organisation.

For all these reasons, employee journey perspective is a well-grounded framework to integrate Covid 19 crisis as an experience lived by employees considering all dimensions (office reintegration organisation, crisis communication, prevention, etc.) and timelines.

We are pleased to share this paper sharing some insights about employee journey during COVID 19.

These topics will also be discussed during a webinar on Friday, June 5th so stay tuned!
