COVID-19: Returning to the Workplace
Over the past few months, organizations have faced major disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, affecting employees, customers, partners and others. Now, as organizations plan to reopen, they face a new challenge: how to prepare employees physically and psychologically to return to a changing 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 and well-being.
While every organization’s circumstances are different, a return-to-work training course can prepare employees to navigate the many changes they may find and communicate leadership’s compassion and empathy during these challenging, difficult times.
