COVID-19 Question of the Day #5 - HR Policies

By ILTA Membership posted 04-01-2020 14:47


Dear ILTAns! 

We recently introduced an initiative called the COVID-19 Question of the Day (QoD). These questions were developed based on content covered in our COVID-19 Global Roundtable and harvested from our eGroups. To provide you with quick access to all of the answers received on our QoD postings, we have aggregated the answers to each question into a blog post. We will also post summary documents in the Resource Library for the Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity and Open Public Forum Communities of Interest. Also, please note that there is a second virtual roundtable on Thursday, April 2 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) where we explore each of the QoDs in more detail! 

Have you 
needed to change any of your HR policies to accommodate Shelter-in-Place and/or Work from Home? 

  • Well, I would say our HR policies are changing on a daily basis as we determine what to do from an occupancy standpoint at the building to what SHOULD we be doing when at home.  We have Savvy and some Pluralsight training logins that we have given to our staff to do training when there are no other things to do.  Hopefully they will use them and get better educated.  We are so far lucky in that we are not worried about billing hours/getting clients to pay/making widgets.
