Across the globe, governments are taking steps to gradually reduce lockdown measures and reopen their economies. As new measures are enacted across a world still battling a pandemic, companies will need to prepare for a gradual transition back into the workplace amid a changed landscape.

Join Baker McKenzie for a global webinar series, in coordination with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), to address the challenges multinational employers are facing to achieve a necessary balance between maintaining a safe workplace and putting people back to work.

We cover key considerations for employers to address in planning for a reopening of the workplace, including but not limited to:

  • On-site data collections (e.g., temperature checks, anti-body testing, health questionnaires)
  • Teleworking, including associated data incidents
  • Remote workforce monitoring
  • Vendors engaged in remote servicing
  • Rapidly changing business models
  • Contact tracing methods
