You are invited to a Zoom meeting facilitated by Brittany McCafferty, MSN, RN and Rachel Boldman, M.S., LCPC.
Summary: Over the past few months, we have been working under unprecedented and unique circumstances. It is important to acknowledge and understand the trauma and loss the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused in our, and our employees’, lives while working remotely. Looking ahead to the future, returning to work in the office after the COVID-19 pandemic can cause differing emotions among workers. Some may experience disbelief, fear, grief and even anger – much like after a disaster, while others may struggle with finding suitable child care. Learning signs and symptoms to recognize employee struggles and encouraging employees to reach out to Human Resources for available resources can help the remote work transition back in to the office. Above all, recognizing the need to extend grace while navigating this new found situation is critical for success.
