As COVID-19 stay-at-home orders are lifted, employers are making plans to resume regular operations and bring employees back to work. A successful return-to-work plan must take into account and address employee concerns, especially those related to workplace safety, job security and work-life issues.
In preparation for a layoff, it is just as important to have a plan in place for communicating with those employees who will remain as it is for those who will be directly affected by job losses. Implementing a plan focused on helping remaining employees navigate the emotions and practical workplace implications of a layoff can help an employer position itself and its employees for long-term success.
This section of the XpertHR Best Practice Manual explains the benefits of implementing an employee recognition program and guides employers on how to design a day-to-day, informal or formal program and process.
