As businesses work towards accommodating a return to the workplace, employers need to consider the challenges of reintroducing and reintegrating a split workforce. Over the past year we’ve seen frontline workers flat-out responding to the pandemic, office workers forced into homeworking and a number of workers placed on furlough; each playing a significant role in the UK response to coronavirus. Within that it’s vital to recognise that each individual’s experience has been unique. High workloads, redundancies and burnout have impacted morale, commitment and for some –eroding trust in their employers.
As the workforce slowly begins to come back together, employers need to manage expectations and ensure rebuilding trust and working relationships is at the heart of the recovery process.
Join the final part of our ‘Returning to the workplace’ series to learn how to rebuild trust, ensure line managers are well-equipped to tackle simmering tensions following a return to the workplace.
