Our Thoughts on How to Support HR teams during COVID

How do you equip your HR teams to deal with new needs daily, and still deliver critical support? We can support you! Contact us for more info

With teams working in the the new world of home schooling/ remote working, we are potentially being asked to manage personal crisis at the same time as a business crisis.

Frantic activities to develop Covid contingency plans, while deciphering what the new goverment rules will mean in practice, and being faced with increased staff absentee levels and potential need to furlough or redeploy staff – HR teams are trying to find ways to provide critical support during unprecedented times.

While all of this is going on, the daily work of HR teams still needs to be delivered – people management within a remote working context to maintain business standards and business culture. 

No one knows what may or may not lie ahead, but wherever possible you will be trying your best to stop the business from facing additional people management risks once we emerge from the crisis.

With new needs emerging daily, you may feel inundated with offers of help. You will need to find support that immediately adds capacity and bandwidth to your team, without bringing another distraction.

DeadenHR has deep expertise in working in distressed and challenging situations, meaning that busy HR departments who are consumed with ensuring their organisations run smoothly can continue to provide the critical service needed.

We are well-versed in providing remote support and building rapport with teams while working remotely, and can effectively and confidently work alongside your in-house HR function. Effectively meaning you can offload work to virtual team members and allow your in-house team to focus on the current challenges at hand.
