‘What’s it like for HR people right now?’

‘If we thought it was hard getting everyone out on furlough, that was nothing compared to getting them back again.’

I quote a frazzled HRBP. As well as HR having to respond to new developments almost daily, line managers are needing massive support. Will it ever ease off for HR?

What’s it like for HR people right now? I’ve heard from some who feel rather isolated; the massive workload gives little time for social contact or team support, and long hours are impacting on home life too. Getting everyone re-aligned, re-energised and re-inspired could be a valuable use of time.
