Policy Template: Re-opening your Workplace


As guidelines are put into place to ensure the safe restarting of our economies, workplaces need to be thinking about processes and responsibilities for re-opening workplaces. Liza Gulezian, People Ops leader at Punchcard, has put together a Workplace Return Policy outlining our approach.

For Punchcard’s Workplace Return Policy, we’ve included the following sections to our practice:

  • Return-to-Work Timeline
  • Sanitation and Office Cleaning
  • Personal Hygiene Etiquette (e.g. Handwashing)
  • Personal Health
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Office Setup and Physical Distancing
  • Shared Equipment
  • Meeting Etiquette

Download our policy in Microsoft Word format.

If you have any additions to this policy template, please let us know via our resource submission form.
