About this course
2020 was the year that everyone’s ‘normal’ changed. Within the space of about a month, COVID-19, or the Coronavirus, changed our lives, including our working lives, almost beyond recognition. With social distancing stopping all but key workers from going to work, almost everyone has been affected in some way.
Whether you are soon to return to work, or even if you already have, this training course can offer workplaces some guidance and some simple steps that can be taken to ease you into a new normal.
This Online Course looks at return-to-work catch-ups, risk assessments, team communication, handling concerns/anxiety in connection to COVID-19, policies, and practices to consider (ie. social distancing), what to expect from managers during this time, and a few practical suggestions for handling pressure, finding focus, staying productive, and adjusting to 2020’s new-normal.
It doesn’t matter how long an employee has been away from the workplace - going back isn’t always easy. For many people, it’s a positive and exciting time - a step towards regaining a sense of normality, but for others, it can be daunting. There’s no right or wrong way to feel – it’s natural to have some concerns, but it’s how the return is handled that can make all the difference, both to the employee and your organisation.

Every organization needs to get its employees to take this course. i have been able to write down action plans on settling well into work
Patronising and inappropriate
With the exception of section 9, the course is heavily focused on 'return to work' rather than 'return to workplace'. It makes the assumption that a return to the workplace will be better for the company and employee, which is certainly not the case in those industries where remote working has shown significant productivity and job satisfaction improvements. By all means do this course if you really are 'returning to work' after being laid off or furloughed, but as a 'return to office' training course it is very poor.
Excellent idea, poorly executed in parts
Good idea to give ideas and skills for how to adapt to returning to the workplace and some of the content is incredibly useful. However, the training content itself is lacking and is often disconnected with reality. I thought in particular the advice for 'Opposite action' while in theory good, when presented in this way came across as 'buck up and just get on with it' as opposed to helpful. I really enjoyed some of the suggestions (e.g. listen to a good song or podcast) but wonder how realistic doing many of the suggestions while at work (as suggested) actually would be in terms of time commitment.The thing I found worst about this training is that it was tested, especially after the core focus of the course was individual wellbeing and health. I would understand testing were the course regarding understanding of COVID guidelines and workplace policy/requirements. However, in the context of trying to reduce anxiety and impart skills to cope with returning to work, testing the individual (something many find anxiety inducing in itself) to complete the training required to work seems highly hypocritical.
Good tips for well being

This was a useful and informative course and I feel a bit better about returning to the office. Lots of ideas for a smooth return, with loads of helpful and practical ideas and suggestions.

Why is this training important?
This courses looks at what you can do and what your organisation can do to help smooth your transition back to work. It’s all about thoughtful planning, organisation and preparation, so we’ll be looking at what you can do before you go back, how to handle your first days back and what happens after that.
Please bear in mind that a return to work is normally about one person’s return after something like sickness, injury or an extended break, but in these unprecedented times it’s likely that you won’t be the only one going back to your workplace. It’s a unique situation and we’re all going to need time to adjust. The fact that so many people are in the same boat may make the transition back to work easier, but, bear in mind that everyone is different and some of your colleagues may have found this time more difficult than others.
This course can benefit both employers and employees in implementing simple strategies that can allow employees to become more efficient, work happier, and ease them back to a normal working day.
