Reintroducing and Welcoming Your Employees to the Workplace

Many of us assume that the current remote working conditions are temporary, and that we’ll eventually get back to standard working practice. The truth is there will be a new work normality and how the workplace looks and operates is unlikely to be the same in the future.

While we are counting down the days until we can return to normal, leaders must remember that the transition for your employees back to work could be as difficult as the shift to working from home.

Leaders will need to consider and develop a strategy to support their colleagues in how they will return to work, manage uncertainty and minimise harm.

This virtual session is designed to raise the awareness of your leaders/managers on what they need to prepare and what to do NOW to help their teams return to workplace after the pandemic.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Understand the challenges they are going to face and considerations they need to take when their people go back to work/workplace
  • Gain awareness and insights on how to develop a Return to Work strategy
  • Master techniques on how to deliver change messages effectively and have safe conversations with their people
  • Identify ways to develop a healthy and hygienic workplace for their employees
  • Recognise the importance of continuous evaluation of their Return to Work Strategy and plan for the next similar crisis

Please note that these outcomes are a guide only and the precise outcomes will vary with the delivery method and duration of the session.

Tailoring our design for you

This outline provides a great flavour of the skills and knowledge your people will benefit from by attending any Speak First training or coaching on this topic – whether standard, tailored or bespoke.

Here’s how Speak First can make the training even more relevant for you and your people:

Tailored Design

Tailored design develops existing content and enhances it with relevant case studies, role-plays and more to make the learning even more effective for your people

Bespoke Design

Working in partnership with you, we develop bespoke solutions that incorporate this, and other topics, to create custom solutions for your organisation’s specific needs

Sample Participant Journey

The learning solutions featured on our website can all stand on their own as high-quality and high-impact learning interventions for your team – however, they are at their best when delivered as part of a wider learning programme, helping you achieve your strategic imperatives and your people benefit from much deeper and expansive learning journeys. We work with you as consultants, collaborators and design partners to establish learning outcomes and create the perfect programme - below is an example of what your people’s learning journey might look like.
