Human and Organisational Performance blog from ParadigmHP
Paradigm Human Performance recently held a webinar that outlined suggested measures business should consider adopting when staff begin returning to work. The advice was gained from health professionals who had experienced dealing with previous pandemics such as SARS, MERS and Ebola. Consequently, their experience was gained from being isolated following caring for patients rather than a mass lock-down that much of the world's population currently faces.
The two factors to consider are the physical and psychological impacts.
Recently Teresa Swinton, the Founder and Owner of Paradigm Human Performance, gave a presentation to her neighbours in the Plymouth Science Park, Plymouth, UK, and titled it Managing Operational Performance During COVID-19. There are many gems and valuable nuggets in the presentation, but one struck a chord with me when she mentioned Deference to Expertise, a principle of High Reliability Organizing.
