The success of your organisation's return to work plan will depend on how well you on-ramp your people. Your HR generalists may need assistance with the nuanced field of human behaviour to achieve a smooth transition.

3 key things to consider...
1. Reparation - Acknowledge with awareness that everyone's experience has been, and will continue to be, unique. Some people are thriving in the downtime, some are suffering in silence pretending to be ok. To elevate performance quickly people need to know it's ok to be where they are now. If you can create that safe space, they will rise more swiftly than if you try to motivate it.

2. Responsibility - Partner your people to choose how they 'show up' upon their return. Knowing their specific behavioural profiles will help you understand what's important to them and what they need to make a productive choice.

3. Reintegration - When people are self-empowered, the process of reintegration can be self-directed, however it will still need an awareness from you/your SLT that this is a process not an event. Being adaptive in leadership style will be critical, as will the quality of your communication and ability to listen.
