Our mission at PeakScale is to help businesses resume operations as soon as possible post the ongoing crisis and lockdown. Things won’t be the same though – demonstration of safety protocols and hygiene measures will be uppermost on both employee and customer minds.
To help businesses of all kinds navigate this adjustment, see below our free COVID Safety Checklist for Workspaces – put it to use and let us know what you think!
