Karen Breshears
I have one on ones with my team and we don't really discuss work so much of how they are doing. I tell them my feelings as well. I try to make them feel safe and that we are going to take this step by step.
Vickie Adams
At SACADA we moved from monthly staff meeting to weekly staff meetings. Supervisors are conducting daily check ins with staff.
Pamela Aceves
we also increased communication and touch points. we also do a Q&A every month and we try to communicate very often all the measures we are taking as a company. we have a CoVid site in the intranet, we have a task force the meets 3 days a week to decide on actions and communication to the organization
Barbara A. F. Greene
So Gabriel- your company has a COVID Team to communicate organization-wide-and yet you as a leader are still looking for ways to help your colleagues- focus on what you know
Angie Salinas
I've included making calls to board members as well.
Diane Polanco
We do weekly staff meetings via Teams and also discuss how to distribute the work load for those feeling overwhelmed.
Diane Polanco
Also I send little treats for birthdays and work anniversaries.
Dennis Gonzales
Our department has 30-minute Zoom coffee times once a week where we chat, talk about books we're reading, movies or Netflix shows, etc. We also have a "touch base" twice per week where we update eachother on what's happening.
Mindy Spigel
In addition to the importance communication for anxious employees, it is also important to make sure they remember that the work they do is important and adds value. I loved that Jacob mentioned that a a part of feeling safe is feeling valued
Tony Magaro
In addition to those noted, started a special notification sent to all management /supervisors to help in moving information throughout the organization. Our president is also hosting a virtual Town Hall for all staff to ask questions as changes are happening.
John Barnes
We established a business continuity team focused on the pandemic and the response to the workforce. We met twice a week as a team and discussed the status of the virus reviewing data provided by the counties in which we operate. We changed our PTO policy to accommodate those who became ill, we implemented health check points at our main gate, we established weekly talking point updates, and we developed animations to reach the workforce in a low-stress manner. We also implemented contact tracing procedures and established three telemedicine processes. Finally, we ensured all employees have PPE provided to them upon entering the campus daily.
