Corona Virus infection has severely impacted  human life with a heavy bearing on socioeconomic life and bringing the world to the brink of a deep recession. At this critical time, government and most of the business organizations have already taken proactive and reactive measures, so that their critical operations continue unabated, while simultaneously protecting the health and safety of their employees and customers.

In terms of employee’s perspective, there are various changes and challenges ahead and adaptive responses that are needed-

- There is wide speculation worldwide regarding  job losses, salary cut, bonus omission etc. These looming uncertainties are seriously impacting the employee’s performance in this uncertain time.

-  While majority of the employees are being given task of  work from home option, most are not aptly trained for that. IT departments of the companies might be training employees, but not are all  tech savvy  and it will take lots of effort and time, before they get fully adapted.

-The biggest responsibility of employees is to maintain the critical tasks of the organizations, remain safe during this crisis by maintaining social distance and not going to offices, unless and until it is deemed to be dire urgent by the employers. Even if the employees need to go to offices occasionally, they must take all safety precautions, so that  they do not get infected, nor do they spread infection to others.

-   Each organization has different corporate culture and  human resource polices, so its important to stay tuned to corporate announcements, align with human resource department.

-   All the critical tasks, including attending crucial meetings by various online platforms, submission of projects, meeting the important deadlines are utmost necessary

-  Marketing and sales personals  must tune in  to complete digital marketing, so that marketing operation can continue unabated.

-  Last but not the least, in spite of best efforts by employers to conserve jobs and continue the operations, there may be hard realities and bad financial impacts are very likely, so employees should start looking for other likely sources of income, in case their organization is badly hit.
