Human Resources Role in Crisis Events

The ultimate impact of a crisis, in costs to a company and its people, is determined by how that crisis was addressed before, during and after an actual event. Every individual in an organization will be affected by a crisis in one way or another. That being said, it is essential that an organization remains a place of safety and solace for its most valuable assets: employees. Unfortunately, in the stressful and chaotic environment of a disaster, organizations can overlook the deep impact a crisis can have on the psychological health of its victims. In order to ensure that employees are granted a smooth transition into post-incident life, organizations must recognize the responsibility they have for maintaining the psychological health of their workforce. Fortunately, organizations already have a resource on hand that is equipped to manage their human capital; the human resources department.
