Nourison Implements Return to Work Plan
Floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison announced that it is implementing a return to work plan, by maintaining a clean and hygienic workplace and ensuring employees continue to practice safe and social distancing measures once normal business operations resume in the office.
Nourison is in the process of installing plexiglass barriers in cubicle areas and improving ventilation with larger air filters. Employees will have daily temperature checks, wear face coverings, and keep work areas disinfected regularly.
Employees will gradually be transitioned back into the office, with communication continuing via video conferencing instead of in person meetings.
Nourison’s warehouse operations, which have been open and operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue to follow enhanced guidelines and safety protocols.
“We fortunately have been able to remain open and able to ship customer orders during this crisis” said Andrew Peykar, president at Nourison. “Our team has done a great job handling our business during this difficult time. Many employees have been working remotely while we’ve had a core team in our warehouses. We look forward to being able to gradually bring more employees into our offices while still keeping everyone as safe as possible.”
