In some situations, overreacting to the situation led employees to be quickly laid-off, then to be called back the next week to come in again. That is a type of situation that you want to avoid. First, you create a toxic relationship between you and your employee. And secondly, you really didn’t think about the well-being of your employees during this time.
Instead, try being reactive and think outside the box, instead of postponing everything or making rash lay-off decisions. We spoke with Jeanette, the Director of Human Resources Consulting at Virtual HR Canada Inc.
