Before the COVID-19 pandemic, HR leaders were focused on retention of their top employees, which also ties into succession planning; staying abreast of current benefit offerings and anticipating their employees’ needs; and, thirdly, bringing true value to their employee-benefits platform. All of those are still important, but now more than ever, the COVID-19 crisis has put a spotlight on caregiving and the need to support employees who are struggling to find care for their aging loved ones. Travel restrictions and social distancing have made it virtually impossible for many of us to visit or provide care for their aging loved ones. The thought of developing a caregiving plan during “normal” times is very challenging, let alone during a global pandemic. It’s undoubtably causing higher levels of stress and times like this, we could all use a little stress relief.
