Whether at the end of parental leave, after a career break or sustained illness, returning to work is a complicated and sensitive time that all organisations experience. Balancing the needs of the individual and workplace can be difficult. Designing and adapting a proactive and ethical return-to-work policy ensures sustained productivity, high staff motivation and more beneficial outcomes.

This highly interactive In-House course charts the journey of a returner and continually reviews the most appropriate and advantageous steps for all parties involved. Through real-life case studies and practical workshops, delegates will be able to go back to their organisation with not only a thorough understanding of compliance and culture issues, but also bespoke, fit-for-purpose takeaways to apply in their workplace.

Covering topics including statutory regulation, encouraging confidence whilst avoiding guilt, exemplar support mechanisms and the differing approaches to specific types of returners, this Effectively Supporting People Returning to Work course is tailored to give both organisations and individuals the required guidance to help some of the most vulnerable workers within the public-sector
