As 2021 kicks off and a new fiscal year begins, many states are reinstating lockdowns and releasing new COVID-19 health requirements. Whether your organization is returning to the office or continuing remote or hybrid operations, it is important to update, implement, and communicate health and safety protocols, such as daily symptom screening and COVID-19 testing resources. As a result of the pandemic, approximately 22-35% of U.S. employees are experiencing symptoms of depression, so this is a valuable time to share relevant resources so that your workforce knows where to turn if they are struggling.
As your partner in safety and security, LiveSafe is committed to keeping your workforce healthy and safe this new year. Our integration with Vector Solutions, an innovative SaaS provider known for its world-class learning library, has further expanded our safety and prevention offerings and made us even better equipped to support your community.
