The role of HR against the backdrop of Covid-19

We are living in a very different world and the impact in workplaces across Ireland has been significant. It is incumbent on every citizen of this country to fulfil his/her personal responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This duty also falls to every employer in Ireland. Every decision your business will make in the coming weeks must be consistent with the guidance of the HSE and the World Health Organisation. Every company is focused on contingency planning and protecting its business. But we also need to regularise this to some extent and achieve some degree of comfort in the weeks ahead.
