COVID-19: Returning to the Workplace
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, organizations have faced major disruptions, affecting employees, customers, partners and others, inside and outside of the workplace. Now, with vaccines widely available and many worksites reopening, it’s important to prepare employees physically and psychologically to return to a changed workplace.
In addition to complying with orders and guidance from federal, state and local officials and the medical community, organizations need to address employees’ COVID-19 questions and concerns and reassure staff of the steps that are being taken to protect everyone’s health, safety and well-being.
While every organization’s circumstances are different, a return-to-work training course helps to prepare employees to navigate the many changes they may find and communicate leadership’s compassion and empathy during these challenging times.
