Human Resources has added a new information sheet to the Supervisor’s Toolkit launched earlier this year to share best practices on a wide array of topics with individuals in supervisory positions.
After working virtually for more than a year and seeing co-workers and students only on the screen, the thought of coming back to campus and having in-person interactions can feel overwhelming. Some employees may be feeling anxious about returning to routines that were once comfortable but have now become unfamiliar. The greatest adjustment will be around boundaries and physical distancing.
The information sheet highlights:
- Why some individuals may be anxious about returning to campus
- How to cope with feelings of anxiety
- How people leaders can help
The Department of Human Resources encourages supervisors to view the “Helping Our Teams Cope with Return to Campus Anxiety” information sheet on the toolkit website. An accompanying document that supervisors can share with employees can also be found on the website.
