Topic:  Behavioral and Mental Issues: Navigating the Emotional and Behavioral Side of Return to Work

Ultimately, it will be employees who judge of how well organizations manage COVID-19 return to work.  Whether they believe their organization balances business imperatives with their personal safety will be expressed as engagement, commitment, and pride… or the lack there of. This will affect the experience of customers, members, and patients for throughout 2020 and beyond. This session will help to:

  • Anticipate emotional and behavioral responses from employees regarding return to work
  • Understand the normal emotional roots for many employee (and leader) behaviors
  • Develop responses to rebuild/reinforce employee engagement, commitment, and pride
