The outbreak of COVID-19, or more commonly known as Coronavirus, has spread considerable fear and uncertainty around the world. It’s easy to assume that all this instability has significantly diminished people’s motivation to perform at their best or complete their daily tasks effectively.
This is where management needs to step up and ease the fears their employees might have regarding COVID-19 and its impact on their future.
Here are some WOW tips to keep your staff safe and motivated during the COVID-19 epidemic:
TAKE CONTROL: Ease their fears by taking steps to minimise the chances of infection at the office. Implement hygiene measures and ensure every employee understands and follows them.
STAY INFORMED: Keep abreast of the latest news from the South African government and the World Health Organisation and disseminate that information amongst your staff.
STAY CALM: Its’s human nature, when people see others panic, they will too! Always remain calm.
MOTIVATE: Motivation levels are at an all-time low. Keep your staff happy and motivated by acknowledging them for their hard work and dedication during this time. From simply sending a group email or making a public announcement, it really helps!
COMMUNICATE: Open a direct line of communication for any employee that has concerns, questions & suggestions.
