Managing the Return to the Workplace: A 6-Step Plan

Thu 18 Nov 2021 14:00 to Thu 18 Nov 2021 15:00
Online Event - Exclusively for HR Network members


The Covid-19 pandemic and the necessitated working from home, could for some have led to changes in how and where employees work.  However, as the UK is ‘opening up’, organisations are also having discussions about the transition back to the workplace.  Employees may have a number of concerns or questions about this, and employers must manage this transition carefully to ensure that it is managed safely and fairly.

Event Summary

With Covid-19 restrictions having been eased, discussions have turned to the future of work and for some, the return of employees to the workplace.  In this webinar Zofia Bajorek, a Senior Research Fellow at IES will be guiding webinar attendees through a 6-step plan designed to help HR, Organisational Managers and Line Managers think about key actions and processes that should be undertaken to ensure a safe, fair and considered return to the workplace.  How these discussions should be undertaken for employees living with long-term health conditions will also be included.

Topics we will cover:

  • Returning to the workplace
  • Organisational management roles
  • Risk assessments
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Long-term health conditions

Who should attend?

HR managers, line managers, wellbeing leads, those in charge of leading return to the workplace discussions

How will participants/delegates benefit from attending?

Participants will get a chance to hear new research and thinking into the topical issue of returning to the workplace and how this could be managed successfully (including how to manage employees with long-term health conditions)
