How will you handle the shift of the New Normal?

The leaders have in the past anticipated risks and expected reactions through a strategy for risk assessment. But nowadays, the essence of the risk is distinct. Rather than expecting proven threats, companies need to face a volatile, unknown, frequently undefined and dynamic world. Transformative methods, such as agile, enable workers to move fast in a dynamical world, but they must also think more about what they are doing.

COVID-19 has adversely affected the work culture in different sectors. HR managers must evaluate and plan for the different trends that affect their activities and set targets for change. Identify the urgent steps to be taken and how changing developments impact strategic objectives and strategies should be one of HR’s highest priorities. With all progressing into a “new normal,” businesses need to develop an advanced mechanism to help them stay longer-term and adapt to a new market climate — in order to understand protection actions and to satisfy employee expectations.

As an employer, it is essential to ensure measures to engage and answer employees’ complaints. Actively implementing these policies will help companies be unique, be more attractive, and support their efforts to retain talent.

How can HR executives inspire workers and help them best?

HR administrators and owners would have to face another downturn in the reopening plan: reduced efficiency for people who were so used to working from home and to drawing up their own hours of flexibility. 

“You have to be patient with those employees,” advises Maria Gafiuk, Entrepreneur Strategist at the Edmonton ATB Entrepreneur Centre. “The pandemic is affecting everyone differently, both physically and mentally. After two weeks, if you still see issues continuing with employees who aren’t productive, work with them and share any resources you have that could help with their mental wellbeing, for example.”

Employees who are behind may also be operating remotely, but Glambeck recommends that social activities that have moved online for these employees are started or continued. See how businesses have started their virtual happy hours by Zoom, making workers feel social even though they are from their homes. And as people return to the office, they can’t all be able to hang out in the lunchroom, as before, but for everybody you can still hold online activities.

Another thing to introduce is the redesign of performance evaluations to the HR management checklist. The Harvard Business Review (HBR) suggested a “based on where your people are” empathetic assessment, taking into account how many people are now fighting for insecurity and fear. HBR adds it is inappropriate for the employees to judge the pre-pandemic objectives of your business and should focus on the development and learning of your employees. Don’t focus on the transactional aspect of performance when instead you could assess an employee’s empathy, resilience and capacity to adapt during this challenging era. 

Preparation for the ‘New Normal’: Work from home or return to office

Some workers are looking forward to returning to the workplace, becoming socially interactive, focusing on efficiency or even advanced technologies and facilities. At the same time some workers have taken very good steps in remote work due to a versatile atmosphere and want to remain away from heavy traffic, crowded lifts, shared office spaces and expanded social connections. It would help workers feel respected by the personalization of their businesses, according to their changing desires.

Knowing that more people choose to work in the workplace setting at home will continue to boost the success of a business by preserving the talent management for the future.

New workforce culture

Organizations intending to combine remote and conventional working cultures to increase their staff in the future would have to redefine their processes. One top priority should be the focus on new health precautions, such as design sanitation, regular temperature controls and the maintenance of social distances. Keeping staff working through simulated events such as fun Fridays and other related big steps can also improve the overall working environment.

Build individual resilience

Employees willing to gain new expertise have a whole new approach to transition. The World Economic Forum states that the mentalities and efforts of the ‘individuals’ would be crucial… to people’s creativity, curiosity, agility and constant transition. That ideal mindset requires resilience. We often think of resilience as a personality trait, but in fact, it can be learned. Resilience consists of seven factors, which increase and enable self-management, self-awareness, realistic optimism, empathy and reaching out to connect with others. Resilience provides a development attitude in the face of changes.

Pandemic has shown the most difficult days of all, because the labor market is undergoing an enormous transformation that is difficult to overlook. That’s the moment for everybody to take their sleeves and to get ready for the fast-changing workplace. In order to sustain industry, to succeed and thrive through the recession, the goal must now be to redistribute and reskill talent with improved data acuity, customer awareness and agile organization.

The recession, which encourages these departments to respond to changing times, has greatly impacted human resources and staff. When companies develop their employee policies with strategic, detailed approaches, they are more adapted to tackle the day-to-day hurricane.
