Companies and businesses are getting very creative with working solutions during this time of remote work/teleworking and social distancing. Even though we are limited to what we can do, several around town have gotten creative with allowing employees the opportunity to come into work.
For example, the Huntsville Sports Commission is allowing employees to rotate who comes into the office on different days. This allows their employees to come into the office one day a week while still practicing social distancing.
“Currently, the Huntsville Sports Commission has a rotating schedule, meaning a staff member may cover the office one or two days of the week and telework other days,” said Brooke Izzo, Director of Marketing & Communications at the Huntsville Sports Commission. “This allows for the office to be covered without staff being in close contact for an extended period. Health and safety are our top priority, we clean between each shift and will asses our current plan if COVID-19 cases continue to increase in Huntsville. Like most, we are taking this one day at a time and trying to keep things as normal as possible.”
The Port of Huntsville is practicing a similar method, and Lockheed Martin has some of their employees rotating shift times.
Work schedules like these allow employees to come into the office if needed to complete something for work without being in contact with other co-workers. We would love to hear other creative ways your business is coping with this different work environment.
