Creating a Positive Work Culture for Employees Going Back to the Office

Chargebacks911® COO Quoted in National Digest

Chargebacks911 COO Monica Eaton-Cardone offered her input on how businesses can help employees transition back to office life in a new feature for National Digest.

After months of quarantine conditions, employees could face difficulties transitioning back to the office routine. For her part, Monica suggests it could be helpful to take a more gradual approach.

“[I] recommend a partial return where individual departments come in one or two at a time,” she says. “Another option would be having employees or departments alternating days between working from home and being in the office.”

Above all, it’s important to maintain open lines of communication with employees. While some may be completely comfortable going back to the office, others might be more unnerved. Given the circumstances, it’s best to meet each person at a point where they’re comfortable. This will make it easier to work back toward normalcy, while also allowing employees to perform under conditions in which they will be most productive.

“Despite what many employers previously believed, remote work has been proven it can be done. Therefore, employers shouldn’t feel rushed to bring their employees back into the office. It’s best to err on the side of caution and phase employees back in until the CDC informs businesses otherwise.”
