Training packages managers and employees COVID-19

Below are links to tools to rapidly upskill managers and clearly set organisational expectations about how dispersed teams can work, so your employees can still meet team outcomes while working remotely.

These tools also contain links to the many other resources we have available to support managers and employees during this time.

With the growing need for social distancing in response to COVID-19, many employees are now working from home, and this is likely to increase. How can managers maintain business continuity, protect productivity, meet their duty of care to individuals and support team cohesion?

Your agency may need to help managers with the ‘know, say and do’ of running successful virtual teams, so they and their teams feel as prepared as possible to be away from the office.

We’ve provided a toolkit that contains a facilitator guide and lesson plan, a draft set of PowerPoint slides and handout templates. These also contain links to the many other resources we have available to support managers and employees during this time.

These sessions provide an opportunity to rapidly upskill your managers and to clearly articulate organisational expectations about how dispersed teams can work, so your employees can still meet team outcomes whilst minimising risks to their health.

The content is primarily focused on office staff who may need to work from home but includes the other forms of flexibility and can include other work environments. You may want to use the content here with your own agency’s policy settings for flexibility.

It is highly recommended that your agency keeps up to date with policy and news on COVID-19.
