How HR Teams Can Maintain Compliance with a Virtual Workforce
Without the physical separation of home and work life, both salaried and hourly employees may forget to report to their managers when they’re taking time off for sick leave or other purposes.
“You have to over-communicate at this point because you don’t have the interaction at the office right now,” says Tana M. Session, PhD, a Los Angeles-area organizational development strategist, speaker and consultant.
One strategy she recommends is for managers to send friendly reminders to their teams to inform them if they’re sick or absent on a day. This also helps managers know when not to expect any work or communication, as well as to monitor lack of performance.
