What should employers be thinking about now?

Critical developments in the world of work

In this episode 185 of the podcast I bring you my observations of the critical things that employers and HR professionals should be considering and acting upon now. This is in light of things that we are seeing in practice and which I can foresee causing difficulties in the very near future.

In this episode of the podcast I cover:

  • Why thinking about mental health and wellbeing of staff is critical at this time.
  • At a very minimum you should be developing a wellbeing strategy for employees.
  • Why you should be considering your staff who are/will be considered as the ‘working poor’.
  • Highlighting the issue that may arise with lower paid staff in your organisation as the cost of living continues to rise.
  • Why you need to think carefully now about what you will do when the rules around self-isolation upon receipt of a positive covid test will change?
  • Some suggestions on what you may wish to include in your policy/process.
  • Why disputes are likely to arise if you do not consider it meaningfully now.
  • If you are revisiting hybrid working and considering introducing long term, what you should consider.
