If you were having surgery, you would hope your surgeon was coming in well-rested and focused on the job — after all, your life is in her hands. While we may not be performing life-and-death surgeries, that doesn’t mean our employees lives aren’t in our hands. It’s essential that we all check on our employees and make sure they are fully prepared for the job at hand each and every day — whether that’s ensuring reasonable shifts, making sure everyone is up-to-speed coming off a shift change or checking on an employee’s ability to continue working after an incident. It's part of taking care of your people.
