If you build a safe, hostile free work environment you will find workers are more willing to return to work than to remain on Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation assistance. Too many studies show those willing to work will work.

Promote a Safe and Healthy workplace environment, follow federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidance and you'll find your job announcement will reach more potential applicants.

Those who want to work will work.
