When to Send Employees Back to the Worksite?

There are a lot of answers and considerations to this specific question and it’s one that we’re asking ourselves now, too.

Employers across the country are eager to get back to normal business and reopen worksite, but are concerned about safety and the many unknowns surrounding the virus. With more than 70,000 employees worldwide, we find ourselves navigating these same challenges – safeguarding the health and safety of our employees while continuing to deliver our clients the level of support you need and deserve.

As a trusted health care partner, Express Scripts is well positioned to help plan sponsors through their decision-making process to reach your specific goals. We know those could range anywhere from managing the wellness of an increasingly virtual workforce or putting in place programs to bring employees back to worksites as quickly and safely as possible.

There will be no single answer to the challenges brought forward by the pandemic. Plan sponsors will need a series of tools to manage the health and safety of their employees. Some will be new and specific to the virus, like symptom checking, temperature scans and testing. However other needs, like population health management, improving health care affordability and mitigating mental health challenges, may be addressed through existing, industry-leading clinical solutions.

We are racing toward better treatment options and new vaccines. Still, the future is unknown. That’s why we are committed to helping our clients adapt and thrive in the face of ongoing changes at home, at work and in our communities.
