Mercer hosts global web briefings on swine flu

Mercer has launched a global initiative to provide companies with planning information and advice to address the workforce challenges of a potential global swine flu pandemic.
Mercer will host two web briefings on Wednesday, May 6 at 9am Singapore time. Mercer consultants will outline the implications of the 2009 H1N1 virus for businesses and HR departments, offer workforce assistance strategies and discuss preventative measures.
Speakers will include Mercer consultants Linda Havlin, Worldwide Partner, Health & Benefits; Rosaline Chow Koo, Worldwide Partner, Health & Benefits; Bruce Finley, Worldwide Partner, Workforce Communication & Change; Russ Robbins, MD, Principal, Health & Benefits; and Danielle Dorling, Senior Associate, Human Resource Effectiveness.
Mercer has launched a special website, http://www.mercer.com/swineflu, to provide links to helpful resources and to provide some practical tips to help companies prepare for a possible pandemic. These tips relate to crisis leadership, employee communications, skills inventory of critical business functions, and the review of HR policies such as employee insurance coverage, travel restrictions and evacuations, sick leave, working remotely, and preventive health measures.
Finally, Mercer has launched an online "napshot" survey to gauge how organizations are prepared to address potential swine flu issues.
