COVID19 - Resilience at Workplace
"Persistence and resilience only come from having been given a chance to work through difficult problems." - Gever Tulley
Ups and downs have always been part of life, and we all have experienced it at some point in time. To be strong and face the situation head-on is the thing to be done. In the current situation (#COVID-19), the human race faces a problem of uncertainty like never before.
Resilient means, the power thought process and the zeal to bounce back— the inner drive to change the things for better.
As per a survey report of EY, organizations will feel the impact of Coronavirus pandemic beyond six months. The survey, which incorporates the first-hand perspective of human resource heads of over 100 organizations across India's sectors, showed that while organizations across industries can feel the COVID-19 implications, 72% of the organizations stated that its impact would be felt even after six months.
The survey entitled 'HR resilience planning - COVID-19 impact and preparedness' exhibited that around 70% of the organizations believe that the single biggest concern for continued remote working is a fall in productivity.
The biggest job at hand for HR professionals and business leaders is to balance #empathy with business continuity. HR processes such as attracting, recruiting, onboarding & overall talent management will need an overhaul. Flexibility at the Workplace and the medical benefits will be new drivers for the employee management process.
Individuals can become resilient by creating more options more choices for themselves. By being healthy and taking care of themselves, an individual can become resilient. Working towards higher purpose always gives direction. Identify what motivates you, guides you, and inspires you. Always think positive to overcome the #challenging situation. #Resilience won't make your problems go away, but it can give you the ability to see past them.
Creating #opportunities to learn & grow, taking care of the employees' health needs beyond just the Medical Insurance, touching their lives beyond the office hours, connecting them with a higher purpose with continuous and consistent communication are some of the ways of building resilience at Workplace.
