Can Your Company Afford To Wait for Employees to Adjust to Telecommuting?
The rapid transformation that the coronavirus has done to affect business is dramatic and immediate. Companies are now trying to figure out how to manage the blurred boundaries between home and work as never before.
Employees’ personal issues are greatly impacting their ability to work. Employees are faced with finding a space in small, confined places to work, oftentimes their partner is also working at home. At the same time employees are having to homeschool their children during the same hours they should be working. Companies need to have the productivity, and their executives are struggling to balance the demands of work with trying to being understanding and flexible to their employees work-life issues
Another challenge is that employees are facing big and small mental health challenges. Issues such as anxiety, panic attack, lethargy, lack of motivation and depression are interfering even more as people have lost their regular coping skills. Relationship issues are interfering more into work such as unresolved marital problems that are intensified due to the stress of constant contact, close quarters and stress of working and home-schooling kids.
All of these mental health issues will be compounded because people have lost their regular coping skills. Executives will now see, in a greater way, the impact of personal lives on their employees will affect their ability to work. Managers who are not attuned to their staff and do not have strong interpersonal and emotional relationship skills will have a hard time understanding their employees and helping them.
Most managers and directors are not trained to deal with mental health issues of this type. Human Resources are also not equipped to handle this rapid influx of personal issues. Companies need solutions now and can’t afford to develop these skills in house.
Employers and employees will have to forge new relationships around trust, expectations and how to support one another, while at the same time not making excuses or exploiting the situation to justify the loss of productivity, lack of contact and connection.
