We asked you three months ago how you were supporting residents and staff through the Covid-19 pandemic including scheme staff who were changing to working from home. We are now hearing of sheltered & retirement housing staff returning to schemes, often on a part-time basis so part home working and part scheme based. This presents new challenges around managing the inter-face with residents as well as managing staff terms and conditions.
Please share your experiences with us. For example:
· Are your staff who have been home working returning to have a scheme presence?
· How are you managing the transition?
· How are you managing the relationship with residents?
· Have you taken the decision to change any staff to permanent home working arrangements? If so, how are you managing this?
We will be developing a briefing on managing the transition back to scheme based working and would very much welcome your contributions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
