There has been a lot of talk about "when" businesses can reopen their doors but there hasn't been much talk about what businesses will have to do to prepare the workplace for employees and customers to return. Please, spend the 55 minutes to watch this excellent webinar that was presented today. It is by far the best information I have seen out there. Also, check out the website www.backtoworktoolkit.com for an online library of tools, templates, ideas and more to help you navigate the reopening of your business. A copy of the presentation slides are also located on the website. read more
