Virtual Event - A Healthy Return to Work: Where Safety and Regulation Meet Productivity


As workers start returning to a traditional office setting, employers need to ensure that their workspaces are set up to keep their employees healthy and feeling safe. While hiring a cleaning service and keeping people six feet apart as a critical start, planning goes far beyond that.

This isn’t an easy feat, which is why we’re bringing in the experts. This virtual event will walk you through what an effective and holistic return-to-work plan looks like.

Join us to discuss:

  • Policies and guidelines you should observe when designing your plan.
  • Best practices to ensure you are fostering a safe and productive environment for employees.
  • Communication tactics to increase employee productivity, engagement and morale.
  • Legal considerations to reduce the potential for litigation.

Nathan Baker CEO

Nathan joined IOM from the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) where, as part of the executive team, he drove the transformation of the Institution’s purpose to refocus on delivering social value through the sharing of knowledge and uniting around a common purpose.

His career has always had the enablement of high performing teams at its heart. Following an early career in insurance, Nathan joined the British Army where he commissioned into the Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire. After exploring the world in service of Queen and Country he moved into industry, initially with a learning and development focus. Having re-designed the learning programmes for the UK arm of a €1Bn European construction product manufacturer, he became part of the Babcock International Group senior management team on a £3.2 Bn Public Private Partnership with the Ministry of Defence. It was here that he drove the transformation of training, incorporating the latest learning methodologies and technologies.

As well as operational and contract delivery Nathan was part of Babcock’s procurement synergy team, prior to getting involved in strategy development. He was the Strategy and Development Director for the Sector Skills Council for the energy and utilities sectors before moving to the ICE as Director of Engineering Knowledge. His broad experience of public, private and not-for-profit sectors has come together in his role at the IOM leading the value realisation programme.

Nathan was made an Honorary Professor in Computing, Engineering and Media by DeMontfort University in 2019. He is a member of the Management Board of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and sat on the Chartered Chemist Review Working Group at the Royal Society of Chemistry.
