We all get sick, it’s rubbish, it sucks, but it happens.
The most important thing is to take care of yourself and the rest of the team. This means staying home so that you can take your time to recover but also don’t infect the rest of us.
We want you to take sick days so that you can fully recover and are able to work at your full potential again rather than working when you’re too sick to do any meaningful work for too long
Let the rest of your team know.
Let Shona know so that she can update the team admin
Stay in touch in the following days to let them know when you expect to be back and if we can do anything to help you out.
Don't feel guilty for being sick.
Go to the doctor in time if you need to. Don't act tough.
If you have weird or vague complaints over a longer period of time, like headaches, bad sleep or panic-related stuff. Check your stress level and come to talk to the rest of your team and Laura or Shona to see if there is anything we can do.
Laura will call you in sick with the Arbo, which is important for insurance and legal purposes.
Arbo helps us (you and Kinder) in case we need advice or help. They have experts and doctors on speed dial if needed.
