Special Herman Trend Alert: Response to Terrorist Attack
We are all affected by the tragic acts of September 11. In response to requests for guidance from some of our consulting clients, we have prepared this brief special advisory. What we suggest is by no means a complete list of all you might do, but we recommend that you consider doing at least what we have suggested below.
Employers Must Respond Positively to Terrorist Tragedy
As all American institutions will be affected by the terrorist tragedy inflicted upon the country, so will the nation's workplaces. The response or lack thereof by the country's employers can make a profound difference in the lives of their workers. Most important is the need for the leaders to show high levels of sensitivity.
Here are some suggestions about how to handle this challenging situation:
As soon as possible, return to normalcy-or something close to it. Returning to familiar routines, established procedures, existing plans will help people adjust. They'll be more comfortable, and they'll have constructive things to do. While we must grieve for our losses and honor those who are directly engaged in response to the terrorism, there are compelling reasons to keep the wheels of commerce moving.
Now is the time to build the bonds of community-being and feeling together, but also doing things together that keep our economy strong. Most people will be searching for some way they can do something in response to the events of September 11, 2001. Hastening a return to normalcy to demonstrate our resilience will make a positive difference.
