As mentioned above, there are various reasons why an employee may have been away from the office. One common reason is long-term illness or paternity leave. When employees return, some things are likely to have changed since they were away. That’s why it’s crucial to provide them with a Reboarding, to re-introduce the employee to life at the office, explain any changes to company structure, office rules, and colleagues’ roles and responsibilities.
This year, employees and companies all over the world are facing the challenge of returning to office life, after a year and a half of disruption due to the Corona pandemic. We have got used to remote work and video-conferences, so it will take some time to get used to the ‘new normal’ working life. With a large number of employees returning to the office at the same time, it is more important than ever to have a Reboarding process in place.
