Effective communication while social distancing in the workplace

Since the Covid-19 Pandemic started, all businesses have had to adjust their procedures so that staff can still work efficiently when spaced at least 2m apart due to social distancing. This has brought fresh challenges to the workplace, as managing staff in a safe and effective manner requires clear communication.
 
A tour guide system can assist businesses to still function efficiently, enabling management and staff to hear each other over distance without competing with background noise.
 
Tour guide systems are ideal for-

One-to-one job training for new recruits during increased absences
 
Management meetings or walk-throughs in noisy areas
 
Questions and answer sessions or open discussions between staff

A tour group can be any size from 2 to 2,000 people and multiple groups can operate simultaneously within the same environment.

Tour guide systems are generally available in two versions; one-way or two-way.
