If you are an HR professional, or managing employees, you know there is a lot to juggle and wearing various hats is a daily routine especially during these delicate times. Ensuring legal compliance, dealing with misconduct in the (cyber) workplace, understanding the risks of online contact amongst employees and ensuring the well-being of employees is all on your to do list. That is a lot to handle and this is why we have a webinar covering all these issues and a recent survey commissioned by the Richmond Foundation has shown some worrying figures. 47% of the Maltese population is feeling depressed most of the time during the Covid-19 pandemic. These numbers include employees who are in full-time or part-time employment most of which have gone through a sudden change owed to the fact that for some reason or another they are now working from home.
Although locally home working was picking up most of us were not prepared to manage employees remotely and added to that neither were most of the employees prepared for such a sudden change.
During this webinar Occupational Psychologist Kim Spiteri explains how humans react to change, how best to deal with it and what measures may be taken not only for one’s own well being but also for that of the employees they manage. Dr Roselyn Borg will delve into the legal implications of managing employees remotely particularly in such unprecedented times and this includes dealing with misconduct and the cyber workplace which may include various allegations – these kind of issues remain omnipresent as ever, yet in a new guise!
