Holiday Office Parties In The Wake Of Coronavirus
The COVID-19 global pandemic has changed every aspect of our working lives as we know it. As the end of the year approaches and a second surge in cases has led many state and local officials to pass new rounds of mandates and closures, many organizations are trying to figure out how to reimagine a yearly staple: The traditional holiday party.
In a recent survey conducted by Challenger, Gray & Christmas, 55% of the 189 human resources professionals surveyed said their company is not having a holiday celebration in 2020 – the most since they started tracking such plans. With the second surge in COVID-19 cases nationwide upon us and the CDC’s advisory that indoor events pose a greater risk to spread the virus, it’s likely that percentage may rise significantly in the coming weeks.

Managing Employees Remotely - Keep your team "together" while working apart by utilizing a few simple tips
You probably don’t need to see the statistics or articles about it – even though the data and the stories are out there – to know it’s true: More of us are working remotely from home than ever before. In much of the same way that words like “new normal,” “unprecedented” and “essential” have become part of our current vocabulary, working remotely is now becoming commonplace, and possibly permanent in some cases.
In addition to the standard challenges found in an in-person environment – project management, maintaining office culture, productivity, and the mental health of employees – remote work presents additional ones, too. Some employees may be dealing with the stress of taking on multiple new roles (teacher, caregiver, the support system for a now unemployed partner, etc.) at home. Additionally, more extroverted employees may be missing the human connections they get from being around others. Thus, managing a remote workforce can be overwhelming – unless you know and properly implement best practices to help ensure your team’s success.
Employee Mental Health in the Post-Pandemic Workplace
