Adjusting to the COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for many companies. There are several new workplace protocols that have to be followed when someone calls in sick. Preventing someone with COVID-19 from coming into work involves checking employees for symptoms at the beginning of every day. Doing this manually can be extremely time-consuming, and repetitive for the workplace staff to handle. SimplyCast presents the idea of a Workforce Symptoms check solution, which allows companies to have their staff identify whether they are presenting COVID-19 symptoms. This solution is digital, meaning no human intervention is required, saving everyone in the workplace time. Staff simply have to check in at the start of each day using easily accessible methods, and record if they are showing any symptoms.  

By automating this process, companies are drastically reducing time spent on symptom screening, and allow them to get back to other daily tasks. This solution leverages digital forms, QR code technology, and SMS messaging to check-in and notify managers if an employee is showing symptoms. 

The Benefits 

Along with all the other adjustments to routines that the pandemic has caused, ensuring that everyone in the workplace is kept safe has become a priority. It can be challenging to do this in an organized, time efficient manner, that collects all the right information from employees. It is much simpler for businesses to handle this digitally, and here are a few examples of why. 

Easily Assess Employee Symptoms 

Instead of asking each individual employee about their symptoms before entering the workplace, a digital form allows them to self-identify. Once the few simple questions have been answered digitally, they will be redirected to a landing page that indicates whether they are clear to work or not. If they have no symptoms, there will be a visual indication that they are safe, and this can be shown when going into work. 

Reduces Manual Workload 

Spending time each morning checking everyone’s symptoms can be time consuming for management, and take away from other important duties. The automated system does all of this on its own, taking the burden off employers and speeding up the screening process. 

Communicates Information to Managers 

It is important to keep managers in the loop regarding who is showing symptoms and may be unable to work. They need to rearrange schedules and make accommodations for that person with relatively short notice. No matter what method the employee uses to fill out the form, if they identify that they have symptoms, managers can be automatically notified. This ensures managers are aware of who can or cannot come into the workplace.
