NEW VIDEO: How to Safely Bring Your Team Back to Work

In case you missed our live webinar, watch the recording here for a straight-talking overview to bring clarity to senior business leaders.

  • Are you planning how to get your business running at full speed again?
  • Are you confused about how and when to bring your teams back to work safely?
  • Are you confident your ‘back to work’ plan won’t put your people at risk?

Every business is desperate to return to some level of normality as quickly as possible, but must balance this with the risks to the safety of their people. Protecting your people from COVID-19 is of the highest priority but returning to work is a complex process. With lockdown restrictions easing for some businesses, it’s time to start planning how to return to work. But how do we do this safely?

Business leaders are swamped with conflicting information on when is the right time to go back to work and how to do it safely. Even with government guidance, people and businesses are struggling to understand the current threat and how to deal with a situation most of us have never encountered before. 

This virtual event, in collaboration with commercial law firm Pannone Corporate,  is designed to bring clarity to this complex subject.

Designed for directors and business leadership teams, this event will cut through the jargon, break through the noise and simplify the process of bringing your teams back to work safely.

In this concise and straight-talking video, you’ll gain:

  • Clarity on what you should be doing now to protect your people
  • A simple guide to returning to work over the next three to six months
  • A simple COVID-19 Health & Safety model to benchmark your business against
  • Guidance on how to support your people’s mental health
  • Advice on how to ensure your business complies with regulations and avoid potential future litigation.
