Preventing people problems: “Bad Weather Issues”


Q: I may be worrying unnecessarily but what do I do if my staff cannot get into work because of bad weather?

A: I always think worry is like a rocking horse; it gives you something to do without getting you anywhere! Take action.

Write a bad weather policy explaining it is your staff’s responsibility to get to work regardless of snow and rain and you don’t pay if they don’t turn up.

However, be reasonable and look at alternatives. For example, could people work from home if necessary? If so, set up IT systems now so there is no last- minute panic.
