We are hosting a Civil Service Local NW Connect event on the 26 October aimed at those who manage teams returning to the office, post covid.
This is about Resetting and taking stock of where we are, Regrouping by coming together and helping one another to plan for what will be an anxious time for our colleagues and Restarting our face to face activities and accepting our new hybrid ways of working.
We will endeavour to provide you with a diverse range of sessions that will help you understand what other departments are doing, sharing best practice and creating a unified community, ready to take our finger off the pause button and coming back from covid stronger and ready for the future.
There will be a wellbeing focus, as we seek to find ways to support staff back into our offices, whilst recognising their fears and additional support needs.
These sessions will come on a mix and match basis so you just sign up for what interests you, our hope is that you will find several that you just can’t say no to!
You must register using your Civil Service work email address and ensure you have permission from your line manager to attend. We will send you the link to Microsoft Teams prior to the event.
