BACK TO BUSINESS CHECK IN 2020-08-07T13:37:48+01:00


When your people are returning to work from furlough or coming back to business after an extended break, it’s a critical time to: 

  • Think about engaging them so they can quickly become as productive as possible  
  • Update your understanding of their individual circumstances to help you plan logistics 
  • Understand their challenges so you can plan the best possible return to work arrangements for everyone 
  • Check up on their wellbeing, since healthy, happy people work more effectively 
  • Show you care how they feel and want to support them through challenging times 
  • Provide people with an opportunity to update you on any new skills and other changes that you might need to consider 
  • Ensure people have a structured channel through which to share their feelings and changes in circumstances 

In response, we’ve produced the Back to Business check in to:

  • Ensure your people are supported, cared for and engaged
  • Ease their transition, saving busy managers future hassle
  • Provide valuable insights around what’s changed, to manage proactively

We’ve made sure the input from line managers is kept to a minimum during these busy times when one to ones would be ideal, though there might not be resources to carry them out. So, there’s an option to share information virtually if meetings aren’t possible right now.

Team members will have an opportunity to comment on confidence levels, changes in circumstances, wellbeing, new skills, safety and any additional support needed so you can ensure their transition into ‘the new normal’ is as easy as possible.

How it works

  • We’ll collect a few details from you such as logo, colour scheme and up to three filter options

  • You’ll receive a link and example communication to send to your teams

  • Team member completes 12 simple questions

  • And has the option to share their results with their manager via email

  • We suggest people then use this to facilitate a discussion about how they feel

  • Once complete, we’ll send you a link with your company outcomes, data and tailored recommendations compiled by one of our experts

You can then use your outcomes to:

  • Pick up anyone who’s vulnerable or needs additional support

  • Plan your manpower/skills allocation more efficiently

  • Make business improvements

  • Show people that you’re listening and care about them

  • Understand people’s perceptions and feelings as a result of the pandemic
