Shortlister hosted Georgia McDermott, Director of Strategic Partnerships with Fitbit, to talk about how employers should be thinking about returning to the workplace.
When it comes to workplace readiness, employees are concerned. In fact, in a recent PWC poll, 70% of 1000+ American employees surveyed said there is something that will prevent them from coming back even when workplaces are open, and of that number, 51% said it was because they’re scared about getting sick at work.
Employers will be expected to demonstrate that employee safety and health is a priority, and employees are looking for things like positive test notifications, workplace cleanliness and disinfectant procedures, social distancing protocols, and more. If remote, employees hope their employers address burnout and work/life balance with continuous programming and community support.
As we continue to learn about COVID-19, there are shifts in recommended detection methods, making it difficult to determine who may be contagious. Fitbit is working with Stanford University and Scripps to find ways that wearables data can detect, track, and contain COVID-19. To date, they have over 50,000 participant data points to fuel this essential work.
In Fitbit’s COVID-19 study:
Fitbit’s Ready for Work solution provides employees and employers with easy-to-use daily tools to make more informed decisions about their readiness to return to the workplace, and to get support for their physical and emotional well-being.
The Fitbit Ready for Work solution combines key health metrics and symptom checking into a unified, simple Daily Check-In experience.
