As we move through the first months of 2021, a sense of measured optimism about the Covid-19 pandemic coming to an end in the coming months seems to be occurring. While it can be hard to see light at the end of the tunnel, the increasing availability of vaccines certainly provides cause for hope as the year unfolds.
At the same time, the anxiety and uncertainty that practically everyone has felt for the past year won’t go away anytime soon. That’s why helping employees navigate through the challenging situations and circumstances brought on by Covid-19 remains a critical issue for staffing firms and organizations in practically every industry.
At TalentBridge, one of the approaches that we’ve followed to help employees through these extraordinary times might seem a little counterintuitive at first.

We do that in a number of ways.
For example, we celebrate wins at every all-staff weekly town hall meeting. Successes are also celebrated at each department meeting and companywide through our popular Feel-Good Friday emails. Every Friday morning, a colleague begins the process by sending out an email recognizing a colleague for a job well done. Others join in with similar words of praise and appreciation for team members, creating a string of emails that often becomes very lengthy…
