Virtual Manager’s Workshop:
Furlough: Supporting the Reluctant Returners

When employees have been on furlough for months, they are naturally going to feel nervous about coming back to work. They’ll worry about how safe they’ll be in the workplace and how they’ll cope with new ways of working, as well as dealing with the effects of lockdown, financial pressures, stress, anxiety, and even grief.
This virtual workshop is designed to give managers the guidance they need to be able to support employees who are reluctant to come off furlough. All participants will also have access to a free Facebook group for 3 months after the workshop where they can get further help and support.

What you’ll learn
• How to treat employees with compassion and demonstrate empathy.
• How to provide reassurance, reduce anxiety, and build resilience in your team.
• How to communicate openly and honestly with employees returning from furlough.
• How to involve employees in the health and Safety process.
• How to handle difficult conversations and keep things positive and constructive.
• How to negotiate an agreement to return to work.

The Masterclasses are held at your premises.  If you would like the Masterclass outside of the normal work environment, I can organise the logistics of this for you but room fees and any catering costs will need to be picked up by your business. Alternatively, Masterclasses can be run as virtual events, particularly in these times.

I can highly recommend Nicola, she has been instrumental in creating real positive change at the Butterfly Hospice. She recently delivered a team event in which our team established a team charter. The day was very enjoyable and certainly worthwhile. Great day!

Linda Sanderson – Business Lecturer

I recently attended a course with The People Mentor I found the course informative, fun and very interactive.
I came away with some great ideas that I have been able to implement into my work and personal life.
