Estero, FL – May 11, 2020 – The COVID-19 pandemic, which has affected nearly every sector in society, has left many scrambling to find information about how to navigate the new normal. No sector more so than human resources. Managing employee productivity and workload, along with navigating government wage subsidies, health guidelines for keeping staff and clients safe, as well as managing employee expectations seems to be an ever-evolving task. Fortunately, free professional assistance is available to those trying to navigate the new work world.
Vince Lamartina, owner of VinceLamartina.com, holds an MPA and is an organizational development and human resource management professional. For years, Lamartina has offered his wisdom to subscribers and followers of his human resources blog. The new reality of managing employees during the COVID-19 pandemic has led him to create hands-on, easy to understand ebooklets designed to help navigate new employment laws such as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) as well as the new Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) program. The free ebookelets also discuss traditional, but now even more challenging topics, such as how to motivate employees, as well as the best free HR software and freeware; a welcome topic in this age of corporate belt tightening.
Lamartina’s website is primarily geared towards the employer side of HR but he realizes that these are unprecedented times and that everyone is looking for information about jobs and wage stability. For this reason, Lamartina has expended the focus of the free resources offered on his site.
“While the resources on my site are mainly dedicated to employers and small businesses, I realize everyone is worried about job security. That’s why I’ve created ebooklets about how to have an HR career without a college degree as well as another free, easy to use ebooklet called ‘how to ace any interview’ and ‘how to get a job at Amazon.’
A lot of the discussion in America is now focused on job stability, job creation, wage protections and what comes next for employers and employees alike. There is a hidden component to these discussions, the mental health toll that they are taking. Human resources professionals are, in a way, caught in the middle of this situation. They work for the protection and advancement of the company’s who employ them, but they are also on the frontline of engagement with employees. HR staff are also contending with a host of new government programs, some of which are changing on a weekly basis.
Lamartina explains, “All of this takes a toll on HR professionals. They’re worried about the company, the employees and of course about themselves. One of the things we see frequently during times of stress is that people can become forgetful. It’s not a personal failing, simply a by-product of what they are experiencing. That stress, along with the fact that many of the government programs they are dealing with are new and seemingly ever-changing, is why I created and made all my human resources checklists available on my site for free. It’s an easy way for employers and HR professionals to ensure that important paperwork isn’t forgotten. These are challenging times for my profession, and I am humbled that I have the skills available to help relieve some of the stress people are facing across our country.”
