  • Two-Income Households - how do companies handle working arrangements when kids are forced to do virtual learning
  • Parents have to choose between their jobs and their kids
  • Companies need to stop being so stuck in past ways of doing things
  • Is it fair for people that are single or don't have hardships have to pick up the slack?
  • Understanding what are reasonable accommodations
  • How does FMLA play a part during a pandemic
  • Companies have to decide for all their employees, how do you handle special exceptions
  • You can make special exceptions, especially if positions are not deemed essential employees in the field 
  • Companies pivoted think it was going to be interim, but now since it's a long term effect there are complications on managing differently
  • How do you get employees back to work safely
  • Employee productivity issues - making decisions on an office by office basis
  • It would help if you considered people's situation in ways never done before
  • Companies have also to consider dual family incomes and children homeschooling
  • Re-Shaping the way we work from working from home, remote workspaces, closing down offices and doing everything virtually
  • Managing people in the Pandemic, Consider the mental health and stresses people have before reacting
  • Being empathetic without giving too much flexibility
  • When you create a difficult environment that doesn't allow for flexibility performance and productivity will likely go down
  • Organizations and Leadership need to be collaborative but there is no such thing as black and white situations
  • Middle Managers are in the most precarious position with all of this happening because they are the messenger, but not the decision-maker.
