Transitioning employees back to work after the COVID-19 crisis will involve much more than unlocking the doors and turning on the lights. You’ll need to adjust practices and procedures to comply with new legislation, take extra measures to ensure employee safety, and prepare for the “new normal” that has formed as a result of the challenges faced by the pandemic.
Now that we’ve made room for kids “at work,” created flexible work schedules, and proved we can work remotely, employees will have new expectations from their employers. They’ll continue to expect flexible work and a focus on their well-being. Meanwhile, organizational leadership will be looking to ensure business continuity in tumultuous times.
Many return to work plans will be focused on safety as it relates to COVID-19. But this course will take you beyond that and ask you to consider additional best practices for getting your employee’s back in the office and your organization back on track – so your employees can thrive and so can your business.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
Add key, human-element components to your reopening-the-workplace plan, in addition to physical safety
Implement strategies for effectively communicating with your workforce post-pandemic
Identify key training topics your managers need to successfully lead post-crisis
Describe the effects of change and crisis on your workplace, culture and productivity
Develop strategies for maintaining employee engagement and company loyalty
Ensure inclusion and equity are addressed in your reopening-the-workplace plan
