Your employees aren’t just motivated by money

Staff morale can become quite fragile in a recession. Before an economic downturn begins it’s wise to put a system in place that will help to keep it high. You don’t want employee recognition and rewards to go by the wayside because HR and leaders no longer have the time to manage them.

Covid 19 has triggered an unfortunate economic recession along with its list of misfortunes.  In general, performance management in a recession needs to be predicated on greater visibility and communication. If the main challenge in a time of growth is finding ways to get productivity to match or exceed increasing demand, the main challenge in a recession is that demand tends to decrease.

Covid-19 has created the global economy to move towards a recession which in return has caused many employees to lose their job. Hiring tends to become easier in a downturn with more people in the market, so it’s even more crucial to have systems and processes in place to manage this more effectively.

While having a wider talent pool to select from is a blessing as you’ll be more likely to find a great candidate, it’s also a curse in that it’s harder to properly screen and assess everyone in order to make sure you actually hire that great candidate. You also have to consider the cost of a failed hire (where you have to rerecruit) – while the cost of a failed hire is not necessarily greater in economic downturn compared to a time of economic growth, it’s usually more damaging during a recession due to a general lack of resources. Whether the failed hire performs poorly in their role or isn’t the right cultural fit for your organisation, they can have a detrimental impact on your existing workforce. They can increase the pressure on staff to carry their workload or drive them towards disengagement.
