Following, enforcing and adhering to the health and safety guidelines for our organization’s staff and customers that are outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Health and relevant industry associations/governing bodies including:
Requiring that employees wear protective gear, such as face masks and gloves, and clearly communicating requirements regarding customers wearing facial coverings.
Implementing and enforcing social distancing practices within our establishment, such as decreased maximum capacity, floor markers and appointment scheduling if possible.
After further discussions about returning to the office we are pleased to announced our plan to slow return to the office below.
Event Marketing Strategies plans to begin a return to the office starting Monday, June 1st with any changes, modifications or specifications outlined by May 22nd including staggered times and/or number of days to be in the office.
Please read this document from the State of Ohio with regard to a Responsible Restart Ohio for the General Office Environment.
EMS specific restart guidelines:
EMS will place hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes at each employee’s desk plus, outside and inside of the front door to the office. In addition, we are working to secure disposable gloves as well for use around and about the office.
Lastly, any employee that prefers to work from home should simply notify their manager in advance of doing so at any point in time.
As a follow-up to the note below, we will start edging into a partial work in the office schedule starting June 1st so we can be ‘together,’ while still socially distanced for our Monday morning team meeting.
This upcoming Monday plan to be in the office from approximately 9am-12pm.
In addition, you’re certainly welcome to come in earlier or stay later any days of the week.
Please continue to refer to the initial email below regarding necessary precautions while at the office regarding cleaning, sanitizing and masks.
While the office is fully equipped to adhere to the CDC guidelines of 6’+ distancing and gloves, hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes, cleaning solutions and paper towels are at each desk, we have decided to continue a strict work from home policy until further notice due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases throughout Ohio, and particularly central Ohio.
Employees are still welcome to visit the office and work in the office at their leisure, ensuring masks are worn outside of the Event Marketing Strategies office space (common areas such as the kitchen, restrooms, lobby, staircases and elevators). A plan to return to the office will be announced, at a later date, when we believe it is safe to return. Leadership will continue to monitor local public health, state public health and national CDC guidelines to ensure employees feel safe and welcomed.
