This is no drill ... HR

As HR experts and business leaders, we are very much at the front of the response to the virus.

People look at us for answers.

They look at us to understand our businesses, practices, and the way communicate to provide information.

We have a duty to care for our people and keep them and their families well and protected.

These are very challenging times and at One Circle we want to make sure that we are doing all we can to provide you with support.

This includes how we think ahead and plan from a contingency and business continuity perspective. But as well how we are communicating and reassuring our people on how we are responding.

It's important that we are flexible and agile in those uncertain times.

Undermining the current situation may have drastic impact on our people and business. The current situation is not only for government or health professionals to deal with, we need to step up as businesses to combat the spread of the virus.

This is not a drill HR!

Addressing people needs and concerns is paramount.

And supporting a more agile and flexible working in this fast-folding situation is no longer a luxury it’s a necessity.

Watch out for us on social media as we share learnings from different organizations about their response to the situation.

You yourself can use our online communities to ask any questions, share practices and learn from each other.

We do realize even though there are a lot of organizations out there sharing their response and sourcing their plans, for most of us in small businesses, we operate in a different way which makes it even more challenging.

So please look out for the information we are putting out there and keep us informed of what you need assistance on and we are happy to help.
