Tags – Making Your Events Safer Post-Covid-19
There’s no doubt about it: COVID-19 has had an effect on the way we view pretty much everything.
Consequently, in the corporate world, employers and employees alike now view meetings, events and travel in a different light from ever before. For example, a high percentage of meetings during COVID-19 have been held virtually.
And, there is a simple reason for this.
Face to Face Deemed Best
‘People buy from people’ is a well-versed phrase in the business world and it’s true: relationships are best developed in person. For instance, a client will want to meet a supplier face to face to discuss their proposal in person.
Equally, a supplier will want an opportunity to sell in person, to engender confidence and demonstrate integrity and honesty.
As such the need for corporate travel and events post COVID-19 will remain as equally important as beforehand.
However, this does not mean that we will be able to go ahead like nothing has happened. In fact, we need to take some safety precautions to make sure that there is no repeat of what is happening currently.
To keep everyone safe, here are our five simple tips on how to plan business travel or a corporate event:
1. Risk Assessment
To begin, it’s crucial to carry out risk assessments for all eventualities and prepare processes to be followed in each instance.
For example, make sure to write a process to be followed if a delegate was to display symptoms of COVID-19 during the event you’ve planned.
2. Keep Up to Date
Keeping up to date on government and agency guidance as we move into the easing of lockdown restrictions is critical for any planned travel or event.
In this regard, guidelines to be followed are ever changing and differ from one country to another.
So, in order to be fully responsible in terms of the health and well-being of any delegate or traveller, be sure to incorporate the latest advice into your planning.
Ensure too, all those involved are made aware of rules and regulations.
4. Use the Professionals
Use reputable suppliers who have demonstrated that they themselves have conducted the necessary risk assessments.
For instance, booking any transport requirements from a professional, reliable business such as OMC Global is a must.
We ensure that our vehicles are cleaned inside and out after every use. All vehicles have luxury leather seats which are wiped down before all bookings, so you can be confident and comfortable in equal measures.
5. Provide the Necessary Equipment
These basic provisions are hugely important for those travelling alongside others, along with any space where people will be gathering.
All in all, as with anything you want to run smoothly and efficiently, the key is in the finer detail and closely planning to cover off all eventualities cannot fail to ensure a successful event or trip.
