Why It Is Important to Stay in Touch With Your Employees During Covid-19

The current situation with coved-19 has changed the world completely. It is not something we have seen or experienced before. Social distancing and self-isolation are, unfortunately, a new normal for all of us.

Many organizations allow employees to work from home, but the question is:

Are you able to manage your staff or work effectively from a distance? Being an owner or manager it’s not possible for you to speak to every employee regularly, whether due to the nature of their work or because the number of employees in your organization makes this impractical. Fortunately, you can figure this out by sending surveys to your staff regularly, such as through pulse surveys.

To get a clear picture of how your employees are managing their respective tasks, or if they are having any difficulty managing their duties, surveys are the perfect solution. Here, how and what feedback you can gather through employee feedback surveys:

Company assets record

You can ask what items a particular employee has taken home (e.g.,laptops, desktops, etc).

General health

Asking about the well-being of employees shows how concerned an organization is about them. It inculcates the feeling of belongingness among employees.

Mental health

Mental well-being is another factor that you should not ignore. You should ask questions to assess how they are feeling due to isolation. If there are any red flags, you can offer support with referrals.

Occupational health

You should be aware of whether employees are lacking anything affecting their work. For example, you could consider asking if they need anything from the office to help them work.

End-of-day report summary

You should ask if employees have completed the work assigned to them today. This will help you to assess their productivity while they are working from home.

Itis very important to ensure that your employees are physically and mentally healthy, inspired, and capable of performing their duties efficiently while working remotely.
