Project Abstract

This project investigates human resource (HR) issues during an extended, ongoing crisis. The study addresses the tension between the elevated levels of psycho-social stress that staff experience, and the demands of organisational continuity which require employees to maintain their work roles. The ways in which these combined demands of work, and outside-of-work, matters are managed throughout this extended period has a major influence on the effectiveness of organisations.
