Planning Your Return-to-Work Strategy

Planning Your Return-to-Work Strategy

With some Canadian businesses heading back to the office this fall, many employers have been looking for a way to ensure a safe and efficient return to the physical workplace.  Of course, so much has changed in the way we work that organizations must be mindful of a multitude of considerations for how they approach and implement an employee-centered “return to work” strategy.   

There is a lot to consider, first off what is the awareness of your workforce? 

  • Are employees ready to return?  And if so, full or part time? 
  • Do employees know the return policies and procedures, and can you communicate safety measures easily and effectively?  

How much flexibility and control do employees have? 

  • Can employees manage a workspace or room? 
  • How will you manage on-site visitors? 
  • How are you allocating and optimizing space? 

How will you ensure employee safety? 

  • Are you tracking health statuses? 
  • Will you manage testing and vaccinations? 
  • What is the response for the possible outbreak? 


The ServiceNow® Workplace Service Delivery helps businesses engage with employees to inform and listen to feedback, to provide a safe, employee-ready working environment as you increase workplace efficiency and flexibility.
