As quarantine measures begin to ease, companies know it’s vital to begin reopening their workplaces. But how do you do that safely and efficiently?

You’ll need to determine which employees and business partners can return and when by assessing Community Threat Level and estimating Indivdual Risk. You will likely need to make changes to your workplace, enable new digital tools, and create new relationships with healthcare providers. This will require using an agile approach that creates and builds trust with employees, customers, regulators, and the broader communities that you operate in.

KPMG has used the 2013 COSO Framework to create a COVID-19 governance framework that will help you to manage each of the dimensions across your operational, internal and external reporting, and compliance requirements. We encourage you to read through the Restarting America Governance Framework for more detail.
