Restarting Work – Boston Consulting Group recommended five-pronged approach for restarting work in offices and factories, while ensuring safety of employees

Summary:

Boston Consulting Group proposed five-pronged approach to restarting work that are applicable to manufacturing and service industries. They include:
  • Leadership, People and Workforce – Create new work model that includes protection and hygiene considerations, social distancing protocols, new approaches that gauge readiness to return to work, and new staffing requirements
  • Supply Chain and Demand – Balance supply, logistics and uncertain demand, which may likely be slower before returning to normal, while considering different scenarios, new potential sales channels, asset and workforce availability, liquidity of suppliers, flexibility of storage space, transportation networks, and stock levels
  • Site and Office Management – Apply proper site management, including maintenance and office services, and create timeline for safe access to workplaces including common areas
  • Regulatory Compliance – Raise importance of regulatory compliance to avoid delays and take advantage of public support and subsidies, while collaborating with representative bodies on flexible working policies
  • Communications – Give employees access to updated communications regarding timelines, safety and health policies for work and in homes, as well as stakeholders, such as suppliers, customers, governments and communities
