CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS & WHAT'S WORKING NOW FOR INSIDERS:
It's been the weirdest month of any of our careers. I hope you're keeping your head up, and communicating with employees in a positive way. It's important to be attuned to their concerns and address them but not to get bogged down. To that end, we have a few resources for you that I know you'll find helpful!
In any crisis situation, employers have to consider not only what to say to employees but when. Add to those elements the subtle nuances of language and delivery and employers end up in overwhelm pretty quickly. As we face the current Pandemic and the dual impact of health and financial concerns together, American companies are looking for guidance in their employee-facing messages. What should the goals of employee communication be right now? How can we humanize our messaging and make sure it's relevant (and not redundant)? Helping with this challenge is Projections' COO, Jennifer Orechwa our guest for this week's episode of ProjectHR.
In this episode, we discuss:
- What to communicate with employees, and when;
- How to be authentic and empathetic during times of uncertainty;
- What employers should NOT be saying to employees now; and
- Tools and resources for crafting and delivering these vital messages.
Unfortunately, no one has the handbook for communicating with employees during the COVID-19 Pandemic, but we've got a solid approach, as well as some sample texts that can help you convey the right message at the right time:
