Remote Does Not Work For All Businesses
Many organizations are working remotely . Some will continue to do so for some time. Others cannot do this.
Those locations will need to enable and enforce social distancing at work, while monitoring employee health.
Companies must rethink some things once assumed as being normal. Examples of solutions include:
- Bringing employees back into work-spaces in separate groups at different sequential times
- Scheduling when certain categories of people can use elevators or narrow hallways, in order to maintain desired distancing.
The tools include courses and training to help people learn new ways of working together and how to understand and execute safety measures.
Salesforce assigned hundreds of employees to build these applications. Previously, Salesforce:
