After months of working from home, not working at all, or working with a splinter crew, we are being allowed to return to work.  BUT, it is not going to be business as usual – at least for some time to come.

This course is designed to help staff and management deal with the necessary changes and emotional responses to those changes experienced by so many people.

In addition to a list of suggestions for how workplaces – and people – can be made safer, we discuss the needs of the people themselves and offer some solutions as to how everyone can be made more comfortable.

And, of course since now so many more people will be working from home, there is a section on suggestions for how best to work from home and to manage people who do work from home.

This is the new normal.  But, it too shall change – and managing change is one of the responsibilities of good leadership.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize many of the suggestions for staying safe.
  • Explore local and State policies and procedures.
  • Discover how elements in “change management” are required for integrating staff into the “new normal”.
  • Identify the importance of being aware of and handling the emotional/psychological reactions of your staff.
  • Discover that management has a huge responsibility in helping to allay these fears.
  • Recognize some of the needs for working at home and managing those who work at home.
