New return to onsite work resources for managers

As more employees return to the workplace, managers are receiving questions from employees about their individual circumstances and concerns. These conversations can be difficult and we hope that the new Manager’s guide to navigating COVID-19 related workplace concerns will help you with recommended language, accurate information and next steps. The guide covers the following topics:

  • Vaccination status of coworkers
  • Non-adherence to the UW COVID-19 Face Covering Policy
  • Eating spaces and food
  • Unvaccinated or high-risk family members
  • Vaccination attestation access and sharing

This autumn, many UW teams will be experimenting with a hybrid work environment with some team members working onsite and others teleworking. If this applies to your team, please see Creating a successful hybrid work environment for guidance on establishing practices that will allow employees to thrive regardless of work location.

We hope you will find these additional tools helpful and will share them within your organization.
