Hey Vivo Team,
My office is opening up, but I feel nervous about going back. I don’t know how to bring it up with my manager. Many people are excited to go back!
If I were in your shoes I would definitely talk to my manager about this. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that face-to-face try sending an an email or a note.
You mentioned other people are excited about going back. Identify a couple of people that you feel close with and trust and have a conversation with them about their enthusiasm. You actually may find in those conversations, they also have some concerns about returning. You could also, in that connection, over come some of your anxiety about returning just by simply by connecting with others.
I would also want to know what the plan is. How are we going to do this? What is the set up going to be? Am I going to be confident that, as much as possible, I’m going to be protected.
Things will change over time, but it’s really important to connect with others around this rather than retreat. Best to you.
