Ensuring the safe return of employees to the workplace

May 14, 2020
Borderless Leadership

That’s the hot topic on everyone’s agenda right now, so perhaps the right moment for you to join us on May 21 at 2pm CET on Borderless Live, in conversation with our guest, Clark Harrison, COO at Zobele Group.

Led by Clark, the company’s seven industrial sites worldwide responded to the Covid-19 crisis by implementing revised operating practices that created a more secure environment for the physical health and emotional well-being of more than 6,000 employees.

Consequently, since the start of the crisis, five of Zobele’s seven factories have operated continuously and two restarted after short shutdowns.

We’ll discuss the steps Clark took to reconfigure practices that led to all Zobele plants receiving approval from inspecting authorities to continue or resume operations. Impressed by the measures taken, visiting authorities have stated that Zobele has implemented the “best practices” and encouraged other companies in their area to adopt the same practices.

We’ll hear from Clark about the practical steps he took to ensure the safety of his people during transportation to and from home, entry and exit to place of work, and distancing during operations, breaks, and shift changes.

If you are a business head or operations leader, or simply ready to hear from a pragmatic senior executive about practical solutions to safeguard employee physical health and emotional well-being, this event is for you. Feel free to send any questions to Clark in advance: jorge.alfonso@borderless.net and register at https://borderless.net/borderless-live.

To slow down attrition, pay closer attention to what workers really need

Borderless Leadership

It can be a real challenge to try to fabricate fun, especially in a group workplace setting. I’m not going to claim to have the perfect answer to that, because I do think fun is much like romance: if you try to force it too much, it’s not going to happen. What you can do, though, is set the stage for it.
