Over the past few months, the legal industry has faced major disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, affecting attorneys, employees, clients, partners and others. Now, as law firms plan to reopen, they face a new challenge: how to prepare employees physically and psychologically to return to a changing workplace.
In addition to complying with orders and guidance from federal, state and local officials and the medical community, law firms need to address employees’ COVID-19 questions and concerns and reassure staff of the steps that are being taken to protect everyone’s health and well-being.
While every organization’s circumstances are different, a return-to-work training course can prepare employees to navigate the many changes they may find and communicate leadership’s compassion and empathy during these challenging, difficult times.
Thanks to our partnership with Traliant, Savvy is now offering a 20-minute course designed to prepare employees physically and psychologically to return to work after being on leave or working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic. Called, “COVID-19: Returning to the Workplace,” the course will be regularly updated as new guidelines and information are released.
It focuses on:
- Raising awareness of the behaviors necessary to keep the workplace safe.
- Explaining new or changed protocols and policies to minimize and eliminate confusion.
- Reassuring returning staff that the organization is taking steps to protect them.
- Preparing employees to be flexible in an evolving environment.
“COVID-19: Returning to the Workplace” is designed for employees to complete before returning to the workplace. A certificate of completion is included, which employees can print and bring with them on their first day back. The course covers:
- Protecting yourself & others
- Adjusting to a “new normal”
- Preparing to return
- Arriving at the building
- Physical distancing
- Navigating common areas
- Dealing with rule breakers
- Guidance for managers
- Additional resources
