The unprecedented events of the pandemic have changed the way the workplace is managed and above all how your employees interact. Many organisations are now looking to transition their employees back into the workplace. This transition should be approached with understanding and an open mind .
That is why, it is important that a detailed and considered COVID Plan is designed and implemented, ensuring employee wellbeing, health and safety. A plan that shows your employees you care and one that supports your employees who may be feeling anxious about returning to work.
SafeWork Australia provides information on your requirements to ensure the health and safety of employees and these should be your guide. The LMHR Team and I have prepared some poignant questions you should be answering when creating your plan.
Frequency of communication, tone and delivery is fundamental. So too is ensuring your leaders/managers are reinforcing the messages you want delivered.
Social distancing is still a requirement, and may well remain so for a while:
Unfortunately, we have seen outbreaks occur and spread so quickly – what is your plan if an employee contracts COVID? How will you manage absences as we head into the winter season?
Although many businesses would have now put some of these practices in place, the environment is constantly fluctuating so it is important to constantly be up to date with COVID requirements. LMHR can help take this pain away. Contact us today to develop a transition plan or build upon your current plan that best suits your business. We can provide you with communication plans (fundamental to the success of your plan), support for your managers to manage the transition (ensuring as leaders you are united in your approach) and checklists and procedures to ensure you navigate the transition of your employees or move to the next stage in a timely and caring manner.
