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.

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.

  1. Post-Pandemic Back-To-Business FAQs For Employers
  2. 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. 

  1. Return to Work (RTW) Options
  2. Checklist of Considerations for Returning Back to Work
  3. 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.
