Return To Work

Hi Everyone,


After some advice again! Sickness is a huge issue in our organisation with patterns in certain departments. We want to try and reduce this as much as possible and want to put in to practise a 121 form, for manager to complete with the employee who have returned to work after a period of sickness.


Can anyone reccomend where I might find templates or where has some guidance to create one?


TIA :)

  • Hi Paula,

    I have worked in very different organisations and the RTW is key to reducing absence so I hope you can find the right Do you company have an attendance review policy too? We find this very useful as a communication tool and helps the managers monitor the absences, review and support colleagues too.


    Good Luck




    Hi Paula

    If you send me your email address I will happily send you a return to work form that you can use as a starter for 10, we also find giving line managers training on how to properly conduct return to work interviews and updating their knowledge of policy is also very important.  And how to have difficult conversation training is a must as well!

    My email is Sarah.Loates@dpgplc.com

    All the best
