Returning to work

Wed 22nd Jul 2020
Now is the time that many people are seeing a reappearance of normality with many offices and companies starting to return to the workplace. Whilst March feels like a very long time ago now, lockdown has affected us all in different ways with many of us still feeling uncertain about what the future holds.

Workplaces will have had to have put measures in place so we can all work as safely as possible and whilst seeing our colleagues will be a familiar feeling, the atmosphere may have changed.

It’s important to talk to your colleagues and clients to understand the impact coronavirus may have had on them. They may have been unwell, bereaved or have felt isolated and overwhelmed during this time and be apprehensive about being back in the office.

Think about your job and your situation. Are there any changes you need to make so that you can do your job well? Do you understand the provisions that have been put in place to create a safe working environment?

It’s likely that the way we return to a ‘normal’ will change over the coming weeks and constant adjustment will happen. The best thing you can do is keep checking in with yourself and those around you. Is there anything that’s working really well with the approach you are taking or are there areas that you need to make improvements?

Take things one day and then one week at a time. If you need any further assistance we can recommend heading over to mentalhealthatwork.org.uk
