COVID-19 Stress Factors for Human Resources

Responses exceed 100% due to multiple responses

In a survey recently conducted by McConnell & Jones and Thompson Knight in early November among human resources professionals nationwide, the stress of COVID-19 is making negative personal and professional impacts:  

  • 36% of respondents reported more than one stress factor
  • Managing working from home for your employees was the greatest stress factor
  • Reductions in workforce, CARES act and benefit plan issues, and working from home (self) weighed heavily as well
