Work Forward Together

The back-to-business primer serves as a practical, succinct checklist of activities and considerations for landlords and tenants as they prepare to reopen their physical workspaces and buildings. In addition to reparatory, pre-opening activity, the guide offers mission-critical activities to implement on day one, and in subsequent critical periods. The primer considers short-term action steps as well as long-term initiatives for portfolio and workforce strategy, both of which are important to consider as business priorities evolve.
