Webinar Recording: Playing the Long Game – How to Keep Employees at Work

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Three years after the COVID-19 pandemic began, employers are looking differently at their role in returning employees to, or keeping them at, work when a serious health condition arises. One of the best ways to do this is to have a formal transitional return-to-work or light duty program.

In this session, we discussed the basic components and benefits of such a program and how it interacts with employee leave entitlements and benefits. We also focused on how recent workplace developments have changed the game and challenges (and opportunities) that long COVID brings to the equation.
