Managing a successful return to work
after extended sick leave
Thursday 24th June at 5.00pm GMT | Tickets £10
If you’ve had to take time off from your job for months or even years, you're very possibly feeling nervous and unsure about how to even contemplate a return. How do you know if you’re ready? Are you well enough to return full-time or do you need to negotiate a phased approach? And what can you do to make sure the return itself goes as successfully as possible?
I’ve helped many people in your situation find the right way to tackle their return to work, guiding them as they gauged if they were ready - and then advising them as to the best way to start approaching things with their employer. I particularly enjoy helping my clients with this stage of their recovery journey, as it means things are going really well for them!
I’ve seen how successfully things go when certain elements are carefully thought through and put into place, and I’d like to share my Top Five pieces of advice with you at this live webinar. We'll cover:
How to know if/when you’re ready to start seriously considering a return to work
Questions to ask yourself if you think you need to consider a change of career
How to broach the topic of a phased return with your employer
My experience of how Occupational Health (or similar functions) can help or hinder - and how to make sure it’s the former!
Things to consider and address up-front to ensure your first couple of weeks go as well as they can.
The session will also include time for questions at the end, should you attend it live and have a specific situation you'd like my view on.
Although best known for the help I give to those experiencing extreme fatigue conditions such as ME/CFS, fibromyalgia and long covid, this session is relevant to anyone contemplating a return to work after an extended period of sick leave. Especially if you feel you'll need to negotiate a phased return. For example, after being diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, or perhaps having completed a successful programme of cancer treatment.
The main content of the session will be recorded and shared afterwards, so please feel free to sign up even if you can’t make this date and time. Although I’m based in the UK, the guidance I’ll be giving is appropriate for anyone and I welcome participants from overseas. Please note: the Q&A portion of the event will not be recorded, to protect the privacy of attendees.
