Human Resources

Keeping Employees Healthy, Working, Calm, & Connected

 

Recovery from Outbreak – What’s on our mind:

 

  • Leadership – Reallocating key resources to emerging business imperatives

  • Workforce Coordination and Communication – keeping your workforce connected

    • Keep all levels of the organization informed

      • Business Plan for moving forward

      • Setting workforce expectations

      • Safety Protocols being implemented

      • Publish communication methods employees can use to provide feedback and receive support

  • Compliance – reacting quickly to changing regulations

  • Organization Structure – Right-sizing, return from furlough or down-sizing plan

  • Just-in-time Hiring & Training – scalability for peak periods

  • Protocols for managing employee related COVID-19 issues (health, childcare, family-care, etc.)

 

Moving to ‘new normal’ – What lies ahead:

 

  • Talent Assessments – deploying best resources to emerging projects/business problems

  • Talent Bench/Cross Functional for key personnel – in case of reassignment or illness

  • Managing return to work (compliance, making staffing decisions, changing policies)

  • Change Management – when current policies and procedures no longer fit into the new mandated operating protocols

  • Staffing models for peak periods may need to change – how do you staff to reduce exposure but meet optimal performance?

  • How to recruit in this new market

  • Virtual hiring, onboarding, training

  • Compensation programs – bench marking for C-Suite, front-line workers, furloughed workers etc.

  • Benefits and leave regulation changes (Cares Act and FFCRA)

  • Employee assistance – childcare issues, care for family member with COVID-19, finances, mental health
