Screening staff services in the UK? Assess how each candidate’s work arrangement should be structured. Could it be a contract role to allow more flexibility than is possible with a fulltime hire? Consider structuring hires to minimize unemployment and outplacement costs in the present climate of uncertainty. Implement low-cost, minimal-effort, yet high-impact employee retention and mental health practices. Everyone knows we are in an unprecedented time and companies are making some things up as they go along. But keeping new and current employees involved and part of the plan will foster a climate of “we’re all in this together,” where the company’s next great idea can come from any employee that wants to contribute. Scared, resentful employees don’t often want to offer ideas.
You might have heard listening to just two or three songs in the shower can help you save water. And it’s true; hearing a few of your favorite songs start and end, one after another, can remind you how long you’ve been in the bathroom and shorten your wash time. Why bring this up? Because the same general principle can help you stay on task when working from home. But instead of three songs off your music playlist, run your laundry instead. Doing your laundry is a built-in timer for your home. So, use the time to start and finish something from your to-do list before changing the load. Committing to one assignment during the wash cycle and another during the dry cycle can train you to work smarter on tasks that you might technically have all day to tinker with.

Continue Recruiting Even if You Aren’t Hiring! For some, the inherent cost of extending an offer and onboarding a new employee is not feasible at this time. As noted before, no industry or company is immune to the economic reaction to COVID-19, but some have been hit harder than others. However you communicate with your candidates, remember that transparency and honesty are key. Avoid “stringing people along,” if you know you cannot extend an offer now, be honest about it. Nothing travels faster than bad news, and a disgruntled candidate is far more likely to spread the word.
