The Final 3 Weeks

Practice Run

  • Now’s the time to have your employees do a test-run of their commute, even if it’s the same one they used to have! You’ll get them back in the habit of waking up a little earlier and getting out of the house, avoiding any issues on the first day back. This is especially important for anybody who’s started a new carpool or vanpool and might want to make sure all members are on the same page!

  • Encourage any new bikers to do a test run of their commute on their bike. This may overlap with National Bike Month (May), which would be fun! You can even make it an employee engagement activity.

Send out countdown email blast reminders to your employees, with a detailed outline that includes all new guidelines in place. This will make sure it’s easily accessible and top of mind for employees as they go into the last week of full WFH.

Internal Check-In

  • Make sure you have proper channels of communication in place in case anyone has questions.

  • Make sure your employees are ready for their commutes by equipping them with the commute app like Actionfigure Mobile. 

  • Set up your in-office and app messages about safety protocols and commute program updates!
