HR Challenges in Pandemic Times
The global COVID-19 pandemic challenges HR professionals, business owners, employees and the whole society.
The results of COVID-19, originally called the coronavirus, disrupted organizations. Now it tests everyone on how to react immediately and rise up in the middle of a pandemic. This virus has touched and/or hurt every human being in some manner.
To begin with, under the Stay-at-Home orders COVID-19 has caused the loss of millions of jobs. It has also meant the end of countless businesses, all over the world.
Corollary developments during a pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic brings the need for HR to be at the forefront of ensuring success in sailing through this crisis — whether the crises is from sudden loss or gain.
When HR can maintain a company’s direction as the strong skyscraper, it functions as the central pillar of every manager and employee for both mental and emotional well-being, during times of loss and challenges.
On the flip side, some business have experienced exponential growth because their products are in high demand. Dealing with the resulting lack of personnel, management (re)structuring, work flow, and consumer demand issues then become the core of the HR business team.
Centrality of HR
HR is the central resource of any organization or company, balancing the employee’s welfare and financial status of the organization.
HR has been processing paperwork, defining policy matters around personnel, and providing solace to the millions of employees who have been fired or furloughed. In the meantime HR has been busy identifying special action plans and flex work methods to cope with the different office set-up, such as the Work from Home arrangement. Also, it oversees employees’ productivity despite the ongoing crisis.
The rapid policy changes and aftermath of changes from the usual transactions of normal HR are quite challenging.
