What to expect_

An effective reboarding experience should re-familiarize your returning colleagues with your company, bring them up-to-speed on relevant changes, integrate them back into the culture of your workplace and empower them to get back to ‘business-as-usual’ as quickly as possible.

But reboarding after COVID-19 brings with it a unique set of challenges, particularly in regards to your team’s fears, anxieties, and expectations.


Each person will have had their own distinct experience during lockdown and how you handle each scenario will dictate how they respond to being back on board. Some of your staff may have been placed on temporary leave, so empathetic, structured communication is going to be crucial for them.

On the other hand, you will have people who can’t wait to get back to their desk and leaning into that positivity will be key to their momentum.

In this guide, we’ll explore the 6 profiles you’re most likely to encounter when staff return to work post-COVID, and how to successfully navigate their needs.
