What that will look like for businesses and other organizations is yet to be determined, and indeed, will likely remain so for some time to come. As we emerge from quarantine and social distancing, and adapt to these changing circumstances, organizational leaders will have many new priorities and employee safety to consider. The workplace may never be the same. As a result, leaders must be ready to prepare and enable themselves and their teams to reestablish work routines. The time is now to think about how you can reconnect with and reengage your people, review and rewrite your policies, and redesign your workspaces.
