While it would be ideal if employee performance was never an issue, understanding the options enables managers to succeed when it is.

Will COVID-19 set working moms back? No, that’s not how our story goes

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Companies need to ensure that working mothers aren’t set back generations during this crisis. It’s a moral imperative, as well as a business one. With parents doubling the time they spend on education and household tasks, report after report shows that working mothers are carrying the bulk of this burden . They’re providing close to 70% of child care during the day, causing them to reduce their working hours and, in many cases, forcing them to step back from their careers entirely. This summer, we’ve seen countless countless articles repeating the same warning: We might be on the brink of eradicating the gains women have made in the workplace over generations.

Now that we have accepted how COVID-19 has forever changed the world of work, it’s time to accept how we need to change along with it. Our current uncertainty demands that we rethink everything from the way we network and job hunt, to how we meaningfully connect, grow professionally, and build cohesive corporate cultures without water cooler moments and “get-to-know-you” lunches. Similarly, with entire industries cratering, job security a distant memory, and life in the “new normal” anything but, mastering the new rules of work requires the ability to not only survive change, but thrive in it.

Those issues increasingly include not only COVID-19 and racial justice, but another crisis that is raging in our communities as the federal government fails to act: gun violence.
