Keep Connected During a Flu Outbreak with Telecommuting
The H1N1 virus is very real, and is an issue that the workplace needs to deal with. Many employers are now coming out with plans on how to deal with an outbreak of the flu in the workplace, as it is expected the number of reported cases will rise between now and the end of the year.
You would be wise to do the same, and to make sure you plan calls for having your team telework if the need arises. The last thing you want is for people to feel like they need to come into work when they are sick, and then have them make everyone else sick. The Swine Flu isn’t anything you want to play around with. Even Elaine Duke, Department of Homeland Security Undersecretary for Management, is making sure her department has a “continuity of operations” plan in place, and is checking the ability of DHS staff to work from home if needed.
