work : redefined

COVID-19 related restrictions are relaxing across most U.S. states and cities and employers have begun to bring employees back to the workplace. Resuming operations cannot necessarily be addressed with a one size fits all approach, especially true for employers with multi-state operations and workers subject to varying local regulations and safety protocols. Our Return to Work team is partnering with clients as they balance the evolving needs of their workforces, navigate potential challenges, and redefine the new working environment.
