Huddle | HR Community

We recently hosted a gathering of the core leaders from our new HR Community.  During this huddle the team discuss a range of issues affecting HR professionals and businesses during the global pandemic.

Part 1

What have been the main challenges during the pandemic and the key importance of the HR function?

  • Moving to WFH overnight
  • Everyone’s differing home working situations
  • Younger workers needing more support
  • Keeping company culture alive and kicking

Part 2 - 14.00

Managing individuals and teams and we think about returning from lockdown to the ‘new normal’.

Part 3 - 19.05

What Govt support has been the most useful and what would we like to see more of?

  • Apprenticeships scheme (a good scheme for attracting diversity of workforce)
  • Flexible furlough, this should have been done earlier
  • Employment tribunals on the rise, this pandemic may trigger the shake up the system needs
  • Loan scheme has been a lifeline for many and a buffer for others
  • Eat out to help out has been a success and has supported many who were worried about going out again, to get back into society and therefore encouraging better mental health for some.

Part 4 - 26.40

Mental Health and what have we had to do differently to support staff?

  • Personalising decisions to each individual and NOT seeing support as a blanket one size fits all approach
  • Offering wellness sessions
  • Supporting people in the change back to ‘the new normal’

Part 5 - 34.41

Skills and Talent - How can we invest in staff during this period?
