COVID-19 Pandemic! What Are the Employers’ Options to Manage Their Workplace? Reduced Hours, Furloughs or Terminations!

Tuesday, September 29, 2020, 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

COVID-19 concerns have permeated the workplace and many HR
professionals and employers are scrambling to get the most updated information
for their employees and their customers to reduce fears and to provide guidance
to ensure support and offer alternatives to maintain employment and prepare
during this crisis.

That being said, along with health concerns, safety concerns and
reliable communications, businesses are desperate to make decisions quickly
when they may not have all the necessary facts to make informed decisions.
Moreover, the decisions they make may not be in the best interest for the
business or for employees. This training will provide a strategic overview of
how can managers support employees, how to develop and implement a new company
policy, and what employers need to put in place to make decisions that will
impact their workforce temporarily and allow them to transition back to
normalcy without losing their workforce.


How leaders perform during a crisis determines how their
employees will see their company. When the decisions
made impact employees it would be prudent to include the appropriate employees
or if nothing else, include the managers before the decision goes out to the
employees since they will need to explain the decision. Additionally, including
your managers may provide you with the necessary feedback on the impact the
decisions will make on the business thereby, creating alternatives.
