IT Considerations for Reopening Workplaces Briefing

Retail locations, public venues, office branches and headquarters, manufacturing plants... businesses of every size are spending hours planning when and how to open safely and efficiently. Each type of location has its own set of challenges and considerations: a shared office building is not the same as single tenant HQ, and a retail branch has different requirements than an employee-only office or plant. Each country, state and city has its own shifting guidelines based on health issues taking place at that time. This briefing is designed to help businesses understand some of the best practices for reopening and the technology that can enable organizations to reopen with confidence -- taking the vaccine rollout, employee safety and business requirements into consideration.
