The COVID-19 pandemic has and continues to impact nearly every aspect of life as we know it. For health care employers, the working conditions have changed with the need to provide screening methods for both employees and patients, wear additional PPE, accommodate for social distancing etc. Additional modifications involve working in shifts, taking a pay cut, being furloughed and working from home only to mention a few. In a recent survey of the most pressing challenges for HR during COVID-19, 7 in 10 leaders cited crisis management or business continuity as their top challenge. This issue was closely followed by managing flexible work arrangements, managing employee communication, addressing employee concerns on workplace policies, implementation of preventive measures and reviewing current welfare policies.
