For Returning to Work


In talking with many IVP portfolio executives in the last weeks, most acknowledge that COVID-19 has thrown them into a remote work future that they had envisioned, but had envisioned unfolding over years and not days. The good news is that we hear things like “team collaboration is at an all-time high” and “digital tools have made this less disruptive than we would have thought” and “employees, across ranks, have stepped up in ways we’ve never seen before.” This is leading many business leaders to think more about permanent changes that may be possible – reducing real estate footprint, embracing a distributed culture, allowing flexible hours, etc.

Today we are all in shelter-in-place, but that could change soon and better to get ahead of it and be prepared. We have pulled together our thoughts and suggestions for what to do and think about now to get ready for welcoming smiling (anxious?) faces back into the physical office.
