Soon, when the worst of the coronavirus storm is over, our business world will look very different as well. Contactless and ‘social distancing’ become the new normal in the workplace. And that also means that tomorrow’s company will have to handle receiving parcels and deliveries very differently. And – as virologists rightly point out – playtime is over. This is about the well-being of employees, customers, and visitors. But how do you best handle that as a company? How can you introduce this new normal? How do you keep it completely safe for everyone involved?
1. Make clear agreements with your couriers
As mentioned, this is not a game. Speak to all your couriers and make it clear to them that you will only accept contactless deliveries in the future. The safest way to do this is via a smart parcel box, which avoids any physical intervention. After all, everything is fully automatic: the box signs off for reception. Your employees will also receive an immediate message via the app. So you keep it 100% contactless and safe. And not only that: it also saves you a lot of costs.
Of course, other parties will also visit your reception desk for deliveries or collections: think of suppliers, meal delivery services, employees, customers, etc. You will have to work out a clear procedure for them, too, in which all parties involved are committed to only deliver without contact from now on.
3. Give your employees clear instructions, too: only contactless is allowed!
Not only do you like to keep your employees safe: you also like to make them feel safe. Therefore, make clearly defined arrangements for picking up parcels: no direct contact with the courier/supplier, wash hands as recommended after picking up, leave cardboard parcels untouched for up to 24 hours, etc.
You can do this automatically with a smart parcel box. Employees can scan their personal QR code to pick up their deliveries. This way, there will be no physical transfer at all. Mission accomplished!
4. Make contactless the new normal
The coronavirus has made us more aware that physical interactions involve risks. We shouldn’t even be passing a ‘common’ flu on to each other. Reduce absenteeism during flu periods and virus spikes by encouraging employees to avoid unnecessary physical contact as much as possible too, for example, when they need to exchange documents and materials with each other. Provide exchange places and moments, or install a smart box.
5. Contactless + optimal hygiene = a golden duo
Making all deliveries and exchanges contactless is one thing: the conditions must also be optimally hygienic.
If you have a Bringme Box, you can rest assured: the hands-free dispenser and the antiviral action offer, in addition to contactless delivery, additional protection against bacteria and the transmission of viruses.
