New HR Considerations as Employees Work From Home During COVID-19
Associations are handling brand-new HR issues
As employees work from home and are dealing with stress, anxiety and isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, associations are handling HR issues that haven’t come up before. Eileen Levitt, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CEO of The HR Team, ran through some of these and how organizations can help staff.
Employee assistance programs. EAPs, which offer free and confidential counseling to employees who have personal or work-related problems, have been in high demand since the pandemic began. If your association has one, Levitt recommends reminding your staff about the resource.
“We are sending out reminders of how to access the EAP, what it covers, and everything because that’s really important,” Levitt said. “We haven’t seen usage like this since September 11.”
