John A. Marshall Co.’s Building Re-Entry Plan
Our plan to safely re-open our offices to our employees, and what it will mean for our visitors.
While the past eight weeks have been challenging, our employees have done a great job of acclimating to their home office settings and remaining productive. There are plenty of pros and cons to this arrangement, but the overwhelming majority of our employees look forward to returning to the office and being around each other in a safe, responsible manner. As such, we have developed a multi-step plan to gradually bring us all back together. This plan is subject to change, based upon local, state and federal recommendations.
On Monday, May 18th through Friday, May 29th, we allowed employees who felt comfortable enough to begin working inside our facilities. This was about a quarter of our staff. Only employees were allowed in our offices during this period.
On Monday, June 1st, we will implement a staggered approach for two weeks where we will break our staff into two groups and alternate days in the office in order to keep our physical distancing at an acceptable level. We will allow visitors at this point, by appointment only, and will require all visitors to wear masks and be logged when entering and leaving the building.
On Monday, June 15th, we plan to return to full capacity, with all staff working together in the office Monday-Friday.
In order to ensure the safety of our employees and visitors, we have implemented hygiene protocols, including the wearing of masks, touchless hand sanitizer stations, individual sanitizer for employee workstations, frequent hand washing and social distancing, per CDC guidelines. Signs will be posted throughout the offices to remind everybody to adhere to the protocols.
We will continue to engage with our customers and vendor partners via email, phone, and videoconferencing in the near term, but we look forward to eventually meeting again in person. Until then, take care and be well.
