What do I do?

October 2nd, 2017 at 12:34 am

One of the responses to my last post was an inquiry about what I do. Well, I wear several hats at my job, one of which is business continuity manager. I have been responsible for this for about 8 years. While historically, the focus has been on business resiliency after a disruption, that is shifting towards ensuring employees are prepared. After all, no matter how solid the company plan is, if the employees arent able to return to work, business (and customers) will suffer.

Anyway, that is the reason I am starting to speak on emergency preparedness with our staff and with others who have asked.

The hub, who works in Alaska, has been watching as the company he works for changed owners and conducted a house cleaning of staff. Some the hub agreed with, others not so much. We have been cautiously waiting to see what his employee status would be with each return rotation. So far so good. They have far fewer staff now than they did this time last year, meaning they are going into busy season shorter staffed. He asked about a raise, and was told he got $1 an hour raise! This is relieving because for now, his employment will continue and even better, they have told him he can work as much OT as he wants this winter. I am relieved that we may have dodged the unemployment bullet this year.

    I congratulate your hub but that should be a lesson for him. Next time, he may not be able to escape it. This means that there is a need to start putting plan B into consideration

    That must have been a huge relief about DH's job!
