COVID-19 Resources


In these challenging times, many of us are making changes to the way we run our businesses.  Some of us find that we need to reduce our payroll cost, others of us find that we have more work than we can handle.  In this video, I talk about ways to reduce your workforce, ways to rebuild your workforce, and how to administer emergency sick pay and medical leave.

These are challenging times, and I am here to provide best practices in human resource management to help you through, so that when you get to the other side your business has a solid foundation from which to grow.
