Elf and Safety! A Cautionary Word…


It’s that time of year again, the season of good will to all and we all want our staff to have a happy and enjoyable festive season. Still there are a few things that can cause headaches for managers and co-workers at this time of year that you should think about before you relax and enjoy the Christmas and New Year festivities. So here’s a cautionary word from me.

With people taking holidays and working odd days – are you and your managers able to quickly review schedules to see who’s in and who’s out and sort out replacements with the right skills and certifications? And can you ensure that your staff are working the hours they should, taking adequate breaks and have taken adequate holidays? If you can’t – you may be putting your staff, customers and organisation at  risk. In the New Year I look forward to sharing more tips on workforce management to help ensure that you minimise the risks to your organisation, your staff, productivity and customer service.

Meanwhile I would like to thank everyone who takes time out to read my blog and wish you all the very best for a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful New Year.
