Will you be wanting your employees back in the workplace this year?!
We appreciate that there are a lot of employees who have been going into the workplace during the pandemic, however, for those who have been working from home there has been a lot of talk in the media and amongst our clients about how and when should employees return to the workplace. Each employee has their own reasons for wanting or not wanting to return and employers should have open discussions about any concerns their employees are feeling. Employers should be assessing when is the right time, what that looks like, do you need everyone in all at once and can you implement the government COVID Secure guidelines? Some businesses are not looking to return at all this year!
There are a number of arguments for and against highlighting key areas of health, well-being, productivity and social interaction. However, it comes down to your business and how you want operate. Either way, effective and open communication with employees will be key.
We would be interested to hear what you are doing and we know that what works for one business may not work for another! Here at Peach we are looking to return to our offices in September!
