More than 25 PESA Member Companies discussed key human resources challenges including managing stay-at-home orders, leave and exemptions and market challenges during PESA’s second HR townhall teleconference, March 27.
PESA Advisory Board Member, Dave Warnick, Vice President of Human Resources, Weir Oil & Gas, led the discussion, as senior HR representatives shared best practices and listened to updates on how others are navigating the unprecedented pandemic. Most companies are maintaining strategies articulated in the first HR townhall, with many employees working from home and essential employees coming to company facilities on a rotational basis.
Other companies have reduced their workforces or implemented furloughs and have capped employee leave at 14 days regardless of reason. All participants indicated they are constantly evaluating affordability and planning short- and long-term goals based on what was feasible.
PESA Vice President Government Affairs Tim Tarpley opened the discussion with an update on participation eligibility for any of the U.S. government’s stimulus loan programs.The next call update call will take place on April 9 at 2 p.m. Contact Director Membership Services Carolynn Henriquez to RSVP or for any questions or comments.
