Employer Guide to Managing the COVID-19 Situation

Thursday, March 12th, 2020

Voltedge has developed an Employer Guide to Managing the COVID-19 situation to assist SME’s to practically manage this unprecedented situation.  We understand that all businesses, no matter what sector, now find themselves in a challenging and difficult situation with anxious employees and an uncertain economic horizon.

With all of the difficulties being communicated via  social media and other media channels, we have been focusing on developing robust and practical contingency plans to help you put an action plan in place to secure your business and support your employees.

Our Employer Guide includes:

Contingency Plan
A comprehensive template, covering Business Actions, Continuity Measures and Employee Planning Actions. It addresses all the elements you as a business need to focus on.

COVID-19 Virus Employee Policy
This template allows you to customise the policy with relevant contact details and can be circulated to staff to ensure they are aware of what is expected of them and what they can expect from you.

Short time / Lay off and Alternatives
Voltedge can provide full details and advice on the above and the implications of cost control for employers.

Remote Working Policy and Guidelines
More and more people are being asked to work from home and it can be daunting at first if it is not something that employees are used to. Providing them with a policy outlining expectations and some guidelines and tips on best practice will make the transition a more positive experience and provide more productive outputs.

FAQ’s
This answers many of the current questions employers are being asked including information on the latest welfare / sick pay arrangements.

In addition to this pack Voltedge can advise you on setting up a Steering Committee who can then provide the relevant guidance and information to whole organisation in a structured and managed way.

As this is an evolving situation we will continue to keep you informed of any important updates, further business implications and government directives.
