Hi Granted this is only my second week back at work but I am finding it frustrating and fascinating at the same time that my employer / colleagues seem to be struggling with me being back at work. Naively I thought that I would have a handover meeting so that my mat cover would hand back to me or there would be something for me to do when I came back considering they knew for months when I was coming back...but no... I complained that I had no work and was promised the next project that came through the door and thankfully something came through by the end of the week (much to the disgust of a couple of colleagues who fancied it themselves!). I am also supposed to get back my relationships with key suppliers but I have just listened in on a conversation my mat cover was having with one of them and at no point did they say that I was back and that I would be taking over again (granted I was going to call these contacts but was waiting until the MD confirmed with my mat cover that they were to hand everything over which happened this morning). Anyway, rant aside, I was wondering how others have found settling back in and did you find that it actually took your employer longer to get used to you being back than it took you to get used to actually being back?
