    The Secret Blessings of this Crisis!

    The news is a scary thing these days! The COVID-19 crisis has led to many freighting days and anxious nights—we are all scared about the health of ourselves and those we love, and the economy is on a tailspin down! However, every day a story seems to bubble up that shows just how amazing humanity can be in the face of this pandemic. So today friends, instead of writing to you about the Human Resource function, I am instead going to link several great stories—happy stories—blessings! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! Remember- blessed people, bless people! Please be sure to use this time to help spread joy and blessing to those less fortunate.

    How to Communicate During COVID-19

    How to Communicate During COVID-19

    Human Resources and business, in general, have been forced to change the way they communicate with their team members. The communication, in some instances, has gone from face-to-face to virtual, or socially distant and behind a mask! However, contact with our teams has never been so necessary- in whatever form it takes.

    This week on SurviveHR, we interview our friend and accomplished author, speaker, and communications leader Deb Sofield. She is a wealth of knowledge, and I hope you listen in! Her main message is to follow the three “C’s” of communication—be clear, be concise, and be consistent! In these changing days, we must also, according to Deb, add a few more necessities to our communication, “be empathetic, be compassionate, and be human.”

    We have been tasked with over-communicating the COVID-19 message, from work from home, to CDC regulations and business policies! How we do that is critical to our success as a business and essential in the way our employees view us. According to Deb, “If you don’t communicate, people will speculate.” That is a fantastic phrase given to us by this expert, and it could not be more accurate. Our employees are desperate for communication from leadership and HR, and we have to keep them in the know daily, even if the news isn’t positive and especially during this crisis!

    The world has changed and won’t ever look the same, and how we communicate must change as well! Steve Nail and I are so very grateful that you have chosen to listen to our podcast! We know you have many options when it comes to how to spend your time and we are so happy you have chosen to spend it with us!

    How to SHOW UP when you don't have to SHOW UP

    How to SHOW UP when you don't have to SHOW UP

    COVID-19 has forced those who normally work in an office every day to transition to a work from home set-up. I firmly believe this will be our reality of sometime and even after this COVID-19 pandemic is behind us, there is a strong likelihood that this pandemic will shift the way business is done forever.

    Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

    Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

    Businesses, just like people, can be either positive or negative. Sure, there are lots of things that we can legitimately point to that are negative due to COVID-19 and the effect it is having on physical health, families, mental well-being and the economy. However, we as individuals, families and businesses have a choice. We can sink into depression and feel sorry for ourselves, or we can find the good in this situation and use this time to better ourselves, our relationships with others and our businesses. There are many things we cannot control, but the one thing we can always control is our attitude. Since you cannot travel, use this time at home to eat healthier foods, take walks, runs or bike rides to clear your head and de-stress. Solo exercise is also a great time to think and be creative. Take time at meals to talk to your spouse and children about their hopes, dreams and aspirations. Tell your children about things you did as a child that really made positive differences in your life and what you wish you had done differently.

    How to Terminate an Employee in the Day of COVID-19

    How to Terminate an Employee in the Day of COVID-19

    Recently released federal government statistics indicate there have been 26 million employees enter the ranks of the unemployed over the past 6 weeks. Added to that, schools are closed and parents are now having to “home school” their children. We are in close proximity with, and spending much more time, with our family members. The stress, anxiety and lack of control is overwhelming for some. So why do we not take precautions to protect employees as we conduct mass layoffs, furloughs and flat out terminations?

    Mental Health and COVID-19

    Fever, shortness of breath, flu like symptoms is what we hear are the symptoms of COVID-19. However, this virus has a hidden impact that is plaguing our society and needs attention. This impact of quarantine and the anxiety caused by COVID-19 have caused a mental health tsunami. As an HR professional, I feel smacked in the face by the title wave of information and fires that we need to deal with daily. We are also tasked with ensuring our employees are okay during these challenging times. How do we manage it all!?
