We now appear to be on the return leg of our coronavirus journey we set out on 6 months ago. Dates for return to workplaces are now, according to which geography you are currently in, being agreed by some employers. We all know that this workplace will be a changed environment, we just don’t know to what extent just yet. Whatever changes there are , employees will return with a focus on their own personal safety around the workplace whether it be an office or oil rig, bank or boutique. This will mean a different mindset that will need to be understood by management in their leadership. How will Managers cope with managing functions and leading safety?
Office workplace safety will need effective leadership. Across workplaces , new practices will need to be communicated and maintained by management such that all are safe and all feel safe. The anxiety that there has been in many has been kept under control as they furloughed or worked in their lockdown home offices. That anxiety will return as they set foot on a renewed commute into a workplace that will be somewhat different in its practices and attitudes. How will they respond when their ‘space’ is invaded by another? What conflicts will arise when the Laissez Faire meets the Anxious? How will new safety measures effect Teamwork?
Leaders will have to rise up to this new safety challenge.
Leading Safety, our transformational Safety Leadership course for Managers and Supervisors will address the fundamental challenges for leaders in maintaining a safe environment and practice during the current Coronavirus pandemic.
