As COVID-19 vaccinations continue to roll out, organizations across industries prepare to return employees to the workplace. It’s a journey fraught with anxieties, uncertainty, and unknowns. In a recent poll of Appian webinar participants, a mere 17% reported that their companies feel fully prepared to reopen facilities, and only 51% said they felt even “somewhat” prepared.

The good news is that a safe return to the workplace is not uncharted territory. Some companies have already successfully brought employees back onsite, gaining valuable lessons along the way. We also have over a year of wisdom from frontline experts on staying healthy and productive.

Appian recently brought together a panel of leading doctors from George Washington University for a webinar, Beyond Vaccinations: Charting a Path to Tomorrow’s Workplace. They listed five essential considerations for maintaining a safe and productive workplace, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
