Return to work safely with DELMIA Quintiq Workforce Planner by Dassault Systèmes
A recent study by Asian Development Bank has revealed that 57 percent of businesses in the Philippines reported that a work from home setup is not a possible for all workers, indicating major disruptions in operations. Even as more businesses reopen, there is still no concrete blueprint on how businesses could safely transition employees back to offices. Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company and world leader in 3D design software, offers a solution with the availability of its Back to Office Workforce Planner. This workforce management automation solution, which is part of the DELMIA Quintiq Workforce Planner, helps businesses create a plan based on the desired office occupancy, generating and assigning office "shifts" to employees intelligently and efficiently. Workplace safety for employees, partners and customers is paramount for Dassault Systèmes. By utilizing the Back to Office Workforce Planner, Dassault Systèmes offices in Australia, Malaysia and Singapore were able to smoothly implement a phased approach to safely transition employees back to office starting with 25 percent office occupancy and gradually increasing it to 50 percent. Ultimately, the offices aim to return all employees to office a few months from today – subject to relevant government regulations. Five critical factors were considered in planning employees’ return: Government Restrictions: Different local government units and municipalities have different restrictions and social distancing rules that also apply in the office workspace. Business Requirements: While many businesses allow the opportunity to work from home, there are essential employees that are required to work in the office. Business and Role Priorities: Depending on the employees' roles in their respective departments, there are employees who should be prioritized to work in the office.
