How to Carry Out Return-to-Work Meetings


The return to work (RTW) meeting is a very powerful tool in managing sickness absence - but only if it's done well. Too many people feel uncomfortable about the process, adopting unhelpful body language, or following a checklist without thinking about the real issues or simply saying "HR told them to do this". A really good RTW meeting will help you support employees who are genuinely unwell and explore the issues of those afflicted by “Chronic Monday-itis” to encourage them to come to work.
