The return of personnel will increase the risk of epidemic in the inflow area. With the arrival of rework in cities, the epidemic prevention and control has entered the second stage. How will enterprises pay equal attention to return to work and epidemic prevention?

Mask becomes the key for manufacturing enterprises to return to work
Guangdong, the first economic province, is now stepping up efforts to support enterprises to resume production. In the afternoon of February 6, the Guangdong provincial government officially printed and distributed several policies and measures on coping with the pneumonia epidemic of new coronavirus infection to support enterprises to return to work and promote the stable operation of economy (hereinafter referred to as measures), in order to further strengthen the work of ensuring enterprises to return to work and production, reduce the labor cost of enterprises, reduce the business burden of enterprises, increase financial support and optimize the government In key links such as services, 20 policies and measures were put forward in five aspects to fully support and promote the resumption of work and production of various enterprises affected by the epidemic.
The first financial reporter learned in the interview that most enterprises plan to return to work around February 10. However, the current epidemic prevention and control standards are the premise of returning to work. In order to reach the standard, there are many ways. Among them, many enterprises choose to work at home online.
Mr. Wang, the head of an information service enterprise in Tianhe, Guangzhou, analyzed first finance and economics. The enterprise belongs to the Internet information service industry, and many businesses can be operated online at present. Many of our businesses are projects for enterprises and governments. Generally speaking, the first quarter is the off-season, and there is not much business volume. Even if there is, it is mainly in the early stage of project communication. The work to be done offline for this type of project is not so urgent, so we still focus on online.
According to the Research Report on the resumption of work of enterprises in the Spring Festival of 2020 launched by Zhaopin, among all industries, it / communication / Electronics / Internet accounts for the highest proportion of enterprises taking home office measures, accounting for 32.1%, followed by business services, accounting for 28.3%. At present, the Internet industry not only advocates working at home, but also many Internet enterprises provide free remote work solutions for the whole society during the epidemic.
For enterprises, especially manufacturing enterprises, which have to go to work, masks have become the key for enterprises to return to work.
A famous large-scale daily chemical enterprise in Guangzhou told the first financial reporter that because of the large demand for disinfectant and hand sanitizer produced by the enterprise, and the enterprise donated 200 million yuan of materials to the designated hospitals nationwide, the front-line workers of the company had already returned to work in advance and were working overtime. At present, front-line employees masks and related protection are fully guaranteed.
Now my biggest headache is masks. Masks are the key to our companys return to work. Yang Hua, chairman of a Dongguan sanitary ware company mainly engaged in export, told the first financial reporter that his company had received many export orders years ago, so it had to be rushed out after the festival. As a manufacturing industry, workers must operate on site. Therefore, under the current requirements of epidemic prevention and control, whether to return to work or not depends on the enough masks. If they dont wear masks, Im sure I wont let them back to work.
Yang Hua told reporters that fortunately, many employees have prepared some masks before, which can be used for a period of time, but on the whole, they are still very nervous. Yesterday, I asked the relevant departments of the local government to see if they could help the enterprises solve the problem. They also said no.
Yang Hua believes that masks are absolute hard currency at present. In the case of relatively limited masks, relevant departments should try to encourage some enterprises, especially the tertiary industry, to work at home. For some enterprises that need to operate in factories, the government should supply them point-to-point. In particular, we should focus on the protection of enterprises that are related to the national economy and the peoples livelihood, as well as enterprises with large market demand at present. Like our industry, if we do domestic sales now, due to the current weak market, its useless to go back to work. There are many industries, and there is no domestic market. So this kind of industry should continue to postpone the resumption of work. Yang Hua said.
The above measures require that enterprises return to work and resume production on the premise of meeting the epidemic prevention and control standards. Refine the guarantee plan for resumption of work and production, and help enterprises to coordinate and solve the problems of staff return, especially the return of professional technicians, as well as the purchase of prevention and control materials such as masks, protective clothing, disinfection supplies, thermometers, etc.
According to the measures, a fast channel for overseas procurement of epidemic prevention and control materials should be established. Set up a green channel for rapid import clearance of prevention and control materials, and implement a convenient customs clearance policy for prevention and control materials that can provide the certification of competent authorities and involve special items, without the need for health and quarantine approval. The operation modes of two-step declaration, early declaration and guaranteed release shall be implemented for epidemic prevention and control and treatment materials to ensure zero delay in customs clearance.
At the press conference of the leading group for epidemic prevention and control in Shanghai held on June 6, Shanghai released the letter of Shanghai Municipal Peoples government to all enterprises in the city (hereinafter referred to as the letter of enterprise), pointing out that Shanghai will issue comprehensive policies to support enterprises, support enterprises development and reduce enterprises burden in response to current needs.
The letter to the enterprise said that at present, the prevention and control of the epidemic in Shanghai is in a critical period. With the arrival of the return peak and the resumption of work, the situation of epidemic prevention and control in the city is still complex and severe. In order to ensure the normal operation order of enterprises, according to the national policy, Shanghai will issue comprehensive policies to support enterprises, support the development of enterprises and reduce the burden of enterprises.
At the same time, the letter to the enterprise also said that it is hoped that all enterprises in the city will take further actions, conscientiously implement the regulatory requirements for epidemic prevention and control in all industries, continue to work with the people of the city to overcome the difficulties and resolutely curb the spread of the epidemic. For example, we should manage our own employees well, arrange them to return to Shanghai at different times, and do a good job of epidemic prevention and control after returning to work.
According to Baidu maps report, Shanghai ranked second among the top 10 cities in terms of population moving out of China before the Spring Festival this year, so the number of people moving back to China also ranked second. In the face of the pressure of personnel flow after resumption of work, enterprises in various fields in Shanghai have already begun to deploy the epidemic prevention and control work after resumption of work.
Lu Xiaowei, general manager of Shanghai International Medical Park Group Co., Ltd., said in an interview that under the recent deployment of Pudong New Area and Shanghai Science and Technology Co., Ltd., the company made every effort to do a good job in the prevention and control of the epidemic situation in the park and the management work after the resumption of work, our front-line personnel come to check every day.
Gu Jie, CEO of folio intelligence, also told reporters that at present, the company takes anti epidemic situation and prevention of employee infection as the top priority. We will also launch some policies, such as off peak commuting, remote work for colleagues returning to Shanghai, etc. He believes that anti epidemic situation is not only a matter of the government, but also enterprises and employees should shoulder their responsibilities together to try to get through the difficulties as soon as possible.
Ying Yilun, chairman of Shanghai Botai Yuezhen Electronic Equipment Manufacturing Co., Ltd., told reporters that since January 19, they have implemented strict epidemic prevention and control measures and deployed anti epidemic work of all departments and posts before the Spring Festival. The companys employees report every day. Although we return to work on the 10th, we will not allow all people to come to work after the 10th. If we can work at home, we will try to work at home.
Some human resources experts and labor law experts also said to first finance and economics that Shanghai is the most developed city in Chinas service industry, while industries such as finance, law, design and consulting that do not particularly need fixed office space can fully adapt attendance management in special periods. Therefore, relevant departments in Shanghai can issue guidance before going to work, and guide qualified service enterprises to take turns to work and stagger peak within at least 14 days after the commencement of work, so as to reduce crowd concentration and congestion in public transportation space as much as possible.
In order to help enterprises through difficulties, various load reduction policies are arriving one after another.
It is worth noting that in the letter to the enterprise, in order to ensure the normal operation order of the enterprise, according to the national policy, the city will issue comprehensive policies to support the enterprise, support the development of the enterprise and reduce the burden of the enterprise in response to the current demand.
The first financial reporter learned that, in addition to the four policies recently adopted by the Shanghai human resources and social security department to reduce the burden of more than 12.7 billion yuan for enterprises, the Shanghai tax department took active action to provide convenient services for enterprises still operating on holidays through flexible ways such as online tax collection and professional distribution.
At present, in accordance with the principle of online operation as much as possible, Shanghai tax department actively proposes non-contact tax payment, among which invoice application and professional distribution service are very important. At present, the scope of the invoice application (professional distribution) service has expanded from the original tax credit rating of a and B taxpayers to a, B and M taxpayers. The relevant person in charge of the Shanghai Municipal Taxation Bureau of the State Administration of Taxation said that the Shanghai taxation department strictly implemented various work requirements such as extending the time limit for tax declaration and payment, providing a safe and efficient environment for tax collection and payment, promoting no meeting tax collection and non-contact services, and ensuring the normal operation of enterprises. The reporter also learned from the Shanghai tax department that at present, for the taxpayers and withholding agents who declare monthly, the legal declaration and tax payment period in February 2020 will be extended to February 24 nationwide; taxpayers and withholding agents are affected by the epidemic situation, and after the extension of the declaration and tax payment period in February 2020, it is still difficult to handle, and further extension can be applied for according to law.
