We’re almost a year into the pandemic. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and before long businesses will be buzzing again with people – a few anyway.
Employers have the enormous task of reducing risk of exposure to the virus and keeping their workers, customers and the public safe. We all tend to relax about procedures that become familiar. Reminding and reinforcing these essential safety protocols in a manner that is highly visible and recognizable (as in reflecting your specific brand) makes an impact in keeping people healthy.
The CDC offers business owners a comprehensive toolkit for reopening. Clearly communicating with everyone with whom your business interacts is critical.
At Growth Inc., we are all about helping businesses thrive during this perplexing time. Our on-demand printing, signage, fulfillment and marketing services make us a one-stop shop for returning to work. We are supplying hundreds of businesses with the personalized and branded collaterals they need to help keep workers safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19. Here are our top four essentials you will need to include in your plan to safely reopen your business in the coming months:
Returning to Work Infographic Posters
A big, bold infographic is a powerful way to communicate to employees how they can protect themselves and others from COVID-19, communicate to contractors or on-site visitors about changes to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, or to share supportive workplace policies. The infographic can also create a feel of “family” and build connection and trust. Display the infographic poster in common areas such as staff entries, break rooms, cafeterias, hallways, elevators or bathrooms.
Our talented Growth Inc., team would be happy to design an infographic for you! We even make smaller infographics that can be emailed or shared via social media. Leave it to us to solve the problem.
Safety Precautions Signage
- Do not enter if you feel ill.
- Wear a mask.
- Wash your hands.
- Stay 6 feet apart.
- Cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze.
- Be Aware: Your temperature will be taken on entry.
- Keep each other safe!
Whatever your specific safety protocols are, let the world know. Communicate clearly using elegant, durable, well designed signs. Employers must keep businesses workers, customers and the public safe. People will be looking for reassurance as they physically interact with the brand they trust – yours, so signs that deliver the safety message and reflect your brand and culture will be appreciated. Signs should be placed strategically throughout the exterior and interior of the workplace. Make sure the message is straightforward, clear and reassuring. Good, clear signage allows for fewer questions, a greater comfort level and for day-to-day business to flow easier for everyone.
“Growth Inc. created and printed all our safety protocol work signs using our brand and color palette. They are beautiful, unique and leave no doubt about what actions have to be taken by all employees and visitors – in the most elegant manner.” – Clara Mattucci, GillespieHall.
Social Distancing Tools
The CDC reminds us that a key component of workplace safety is social distancing – always keeping 6 feet apart. At Growth Inc., we will create an entire “social distancing” kit made up of signs, tape marks, and branded floor decals that serve as visual cues to help enforce distancing. Each visual cue will appear to be a personal invitation to stay safe and keep others safe.
You’ve seen them everywhere – at hair salons, restaurants, reception areas – thick, plastic dividers separating workstations and employees/customers. These dividers provide a sense of safety and privacy for employees – and we can customize what you need.
Growth Inc. understands that the world around us has forever changed. We also understand the value of employees and keeping them safe. Trust us with your problems. We are here to help you to not only survive in this new normal, but to thrive. We say “YES” so you can grow.
