- Maintain Constant Communication with Your Employees
Besides worrying about job security, most employees are also anxious about their family's health, safety, and financial stability. Maintain communication with them. It helps when they know they can count on you for advice or reassurance. If you had to limit your operations, update them of your plans and, at the same time, listen to their advice.
- Offer Counseling
Even if you cannot offer any financial assistance, offer counsel or connect them to agencies that can help them. Some people are more worried about a sick relative or anxious about bringing home the virus to family members. Give your employees links to correct and timely information. Remind them to wear proper safety attire and to practice safe commuting, shopping, and other activities.
- Create A Flexible Employee Schedule
You likely had to adjust working hours because of a curfew or limited store hours. Help your employees by creating a flexible schedule. Consider if they have available transportation or a safe route to go home. It would help if you asked your employees any preferences, especially those who have to take care of a sick family member.
Also, give your employees time to get vaccinated and assist their families in doing the same thing. Prioritize this to keep your employees and your business going even under challenging circumstances.
- Check Your Business Insurance for Coverage
Talk to a business insurance professional about your coverage and any unique cover to help your employees financially. It will also help if you update your policy regularly to ensure that you're covered for anything that may happen.
And if you need to let one go, be kind and help your employee out. Help them find work elsewhere or recommend them to your friends.
