Knoetic Curated Collection: Return to Work
The best resources and frameworks for designing your Return to Work strategy.
In the last month, we’ve personally connected with 50+ CPOs via our Roundtables. And one topic rises above the rest - Return to Work (RTW).
So today’s "Curated Collection" summarizes 12 of the top resources on RTW plans, recommended by your fellow CPOs.
We have a singular mission with Knoetic: to curate the “best of the best” - whether it’s the most forward thinking CPOs, or the content that will empower them. So enjoy, and let us know if this is helpful!
Knoetic'c 4-step playbook to get deeper
If you want to build your own robust plan, here's how you should start.
Step 1: Start at the source 🏛️
Understand exactly what guidance government institutions like the CDC, OSHA, and EEOC are offering during this time.
Step 2: Listen to legal ⚖️
It's vital to understand guidance from employment lawyers in the context of broader government guidance. We’ve picked 2 of the very best resources below.
- Post-Pandemic Back-To-Business FAQs For Employers
- Comprehensive And Updated FAQs For Employers On The COVID-19 Coronavirus
Fisher Phillips' FAQs are INCREDIBLE.
Step 3: Pay attention to the private sector 💼
We believe the 3 guides below represent the best summaries of key issues employers should be considering.
- Return to Work (RTW) Options
- Checklist of Considerations for Returning Back to Work
- LifeLabs Learning: Return-To-Workplace (RTW) Discussion Guide
To operationalize this knowledge and build your own toolkit, we recommend (again) Madrona’s framework.
Step 4 : Tap into the Knoetic community
And finally, as you’re building your framework, we recommend getting inspiration from your fellow Knoetic community members.
