Client Experiences

Mary gave the workshop the focus and professionalism it required, ensuring that she completed her research with our company prior to creating the workshop content, and identifying the key areas of importance, both for our team members and also the clients they interact with. The training was delivered to a team of people who are dealing with a wide cohort of individuals on a daily basis, helping them to find employment whilst at the same time, particularly throughout COVID, being aware of their mental wellbeing and how to help via their conversations.

Dignity and Respect Support Advisor at Telefonica

I invited her to talk about Mental Health for the Telefonica Dublin office as part of our Diversity & Inclusion monthly event. She was brilliant! The feedback was that Mary was approachable and brought up such a delicate subject in a considerate and pleasing way, demonstrating how knowledgeable she is in the matter. I couldn't recommend Mary enough.

Have a question for Mary?

When can an absent employee be referred for return to work planning?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions. 

The direct answer is, we suggest that once an employee has been absent for three weeks and it is looking likely that they will not return on the fourth week (it is at this point they are considered long term sick) that an employee can be referred to Connect4Work for assistance.

The in-direct answer is, that as soon as you find yourself asking any of these questions about an absent employee, it is time to reach out for some support:

  • What if I do/say the wrong thing?
  • I don’t know what the next steps are.
  • I don’t want to seem insensitive
  • I want to help, but just don’t know how
  • The team is being affected 

I love to hear from employers like you. I like to listen to your current challenges and if I can help, I will. 

Ask me anything!
