Following are some key suggestions to provide the best possible assistance to those employees that are WFH:
- Have an EAP service in place as the overall picture for employees experiencing stress and financial hardship continues to rise.
- Appreciate and thank your employees frequently and reach out to touch base with each individual consistently.
- Give up trying to micromanage – it is destructive to you and the employee.
- Another aspect to give up is putting a positive spin on the current situation and circumstance. Allow your employees to vent safely – build the trust factor with each person.
