Return to work interviews - How to get them right

This Acas training event will provide the skills you need to plan and conduct a successful Return to Work interview.

Research indicates that carrying out Return to Work Interviews is the most effective measure employers can take to reduce absence levels. Failing to carry out Return to Work Interviews (or conducting them but getting them wrong) can cost business time and money and can also send out the wrong message to otherwise committed and engaged employees.

The introduction of the Statement of Fitness for Work (the Fit Note) has created a new opportunity for early discussions around returning to work and reaffirms their importance as part of an effective and fair approach to absence management.

In these training sessions we explain why these interviews are so important and then provide step by step guidance to increase your managers understanding and confidence in the process.
