Aduro® Releases Definitive Model and Guide to Help People Safely Return to Work

REDMOND, Wash., May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Aduro®, the leader at the intersection of employee well-being and performance, announced today a step-by-step model and simple guide to supporting company decisions about a safe return to work.

The 5-phase model helps midsize and enterprise organizations prepare to move from states of “not ready” to return to high employee performance — which businesses will need to thrive again despite ongoing economic uncertainty.

Each organization is going to make the best decision for their employees and customers, even if that means a staggered approach to returning to work,” said Dr. Darren White, Aduro CEO. “Business leaders would love a return to normal and be in a position to help their people feel well, engaged, and productive. But it may take months for people to simply feel safe and secure. That’s why we’re releasing this Work Readiness Model and soon-to-be-released Return-to-Work Handbook.”

Dr. Darren White, CEO

Last month, Aduro released an integrated health, safety, and mental well-being solution to support organizations as they begin a return to work. This solution includes daily temperature screenings and health survey administration as phase 1 of helping employees and customers feel safe. The service provides professional screeners on-site and a health concierge to consult, triage, and implement safety protocols. This solution is an extension of Aduro’s WellMetrics® offering, which has run high-volume biometric health screenings for midsize and enterprise companies for more than a decade.

Later phases in the model focus on unlocking human performance, enabling employees to address their health and mental well-being in addition to addressing their feelings of safety. Aduro’s 5-phase Work Readiness Model™ maps out each stage and offers guidance on when a company is ready to build to more productive stages of operation, safely and effectively. The five stages are:

  • Not ready  Minimally viable productivity using a mix of essential workers and work from home.
  • Safe  Ensure physical health and safety by setting a protocol for “return-to-work” clearance that includes temperature and health screenings.
  • Well  Ensure mental well-being and psychological safety through the provision and tracking of mental and emotional health programs.
  • Engaged  A renewed focus on mindset and resilience, purpose and contribution, and relationships and community.
  • Kinetic Performance™  A sustainable approach to unlocking human performance through holistic well-being and growth.

Our team has been blown away by the substantial demand and urgency for a solution to the return-to-work dilemma,” said Josh Templeton, Chief Sales Officer at Aduro. “Regardless of what readiness phase companies are in, from how to just return safely to helping companies become highly productive again, we’re seeing an outcry for answers. The Work Readiness Model is going to create incredible clarity and much-needed guidance.”
