Navigating the Return to Office Transition
Dec 08, 2021
Hello and welcome to Episode 91 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today we’re starting to tackle the topic of returning to workplaces post lockdowns and restrictions.
The reality I am hearing from a lot of business owners is that they are expecting their teams to get back to the office full time, and they are getting resistance or even resignations. Or that they are struggling with how to make this work for everyone.
In this episode I shared 3 themes that I think will frame what the return to work looks like.
- Employees will get to call more of the shots;
- There will be a period of re adjustment;
- It’s time to re set the boundaries.
There is no right or wrong way to make this work, but expecting employees to simply backflip is certainly not the answer.
If you’d like to connect with other businesses who are also juggling the challenges of teams, I’d love you to join us inside our free Facebook Group, HR Support for Australian Businesses, so I can learn more about what’s working for you and any challenges you might be having.
