COVID-19 - You Survived... Now What?
Sadly, in addition to the lives that have been lost in this pandemic, many businesses will not survive. From a business perspective, step 1 was survival, but as we continue moving forward and discovering our new normal, strategies will have to evolve. Every business is required to ensure physical safety precautions are taken but what is your business continuity plan? If you have one, congratulations, you're on the leading edge. Whether you have one or not, chances are, you haven't had the opportunity to consider including psychological safety solutions. One thing we can likely all agree on is that COVID-19 has all of us reevaluating priorities on the now, near, far continuum. Family, relationships, life, and other things we often take for granted have come to the forefront of our minds.
While business owners are obligated to stay focused on operations and profits, our employees sit in a different seat and therefore show up with a different perspective. Elevated Outcomes believes that those who fail to account for and accommodate the emotional concerns and needs of their employees will find themselves at risk for low employee engagement and high turnover. Recent business trends had already leveled the competitive landscape, but your organization's response to COVID-19 may be the deciding factor of where you land among the competition.
Let us partner with you to provide expertise in ensuring that your business continuity planning and employee engagement strategy includes psychological safety for your staff, now and in the future.
