The election is now behind us and the outcome wasn’t really a surprise, probably the surprising factors being that the outcome for National was worse than expected, with Labour performing better than was expected, being in the unique position of being able to govern alone.

Covid-19 Reflection and Communication

As we head out of Level 4 and into Alert Level 3, I reflect a little on the past four weeks, knowing the experiences and challenges that I have had – as a business owner, a manager of people and as a working mother, have also been reflected in those around me – we’ve all had daily challenges, struggles and sometimes wins, trying to keep up with daily routines, communication, business as usual and home school children.

Tip for a Successful Video Interview

Over the matter of a few short weeks we’ve seen technology transform the way we’re recruiting. Here at Talent ID, “business as usual” has become connecting with candidates and clients using tools such as Zoom and Skype. These tools are fantastic at allowing us to continue our job and sourcing candidates for clients, but does the same etiquette apply for candidates when being video interviewed vs face-to-face? It is easy to forget when you’re sitting in the comfort of your own home that this is still a formal interview situation, so here are a few tips on how to ace a video interview from home!

Business, People and Covid-19

My last months article on business continuity and contingency planning, I broadly covered aspects around having a plan in place for times of crisis.
The time of crisis is here and it’s hit hard and quite quickly. Sectors which have already been struggling have little resilience left to keep trading, and the coming months ahead are going to be tough.

Business Continuity and Contingency Planning

As the world and New Zealand start to react to the threat of the Covid-19, as employers we find ourselves quite quickly wondering how this may affect our own businesses and what we can do to plan for what may eventuate. Already we are seeing the effects of this through some sectors with some devastating consequences.

Measles - is your workplace prepared?

As New Zealand’s worst measles outbreak in more than 20 years intensifies, thoughts automatically turn to the most vulnerable.

With 963 cases confirmed nationally, schools and childcare centres across the country are being urged to be vigilant. And people are being advised to stay away from public events if they are feeling unwell.

But, any place where you come into contact with others is a potential risk, and the workplace is no exception.

As an employer, it is your duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 to take all practicable steps to mitigate risk and protect workers at all times from workplace hazards. And that includes notifiable diseases - of which measles in one.

Under the Health Act 1956, if a health practitioner has ‘reasonable suspicion’ that a patient is suffering from measles (or any other notifiable disease) they must report it to a Medical Officer of Health.

Employers are then notified to ensure appropriate health control measures are taken to reduce the risk of it spreading further.

If an employee is diagnosed with measles, public health officials will assess the level of risk and let you know what action needs to be taken - however it’s always good to have a plan up your sleeve before you need it.

Already having a policy or procedure in place, which clearly states employee obligations, will put you ahead of the game (as much as possible) should your workplace be affected by measles.

A good starting point is to think about what information you would need to convey to staff and how you would go about doing so, for instance:

• Explaining the risk
• Making sure employees are familiar with the symptoms
• Letting employees know where they can get vaccinated
• Reminding employees of the risk to family and friends
• Outlining any quarantine requirements
