#5 - Michelle Berg, CEO & Leading Lady at Elevated HR

Nikki's guest is Michelle Berg, CEO of Elevated HR. Elevated has been very busy dealing with companies who have had to institute temporary layoffs. Michelle and her team have handled 2,400 layoffs in a two-week period, so she has some very valuable advice for HR pros, including offering to do check ins with laid off personnel (a new service that has been very popular with clients). Michelle also advocates paying close attention to the mental health of employees. At Elevated, Wednesday standups are devoted to mental health with each team member being asked to rate how they are feeling on a scale of one to ten. She notes that, “the only way out of this is by sharing, and that means being vulnerable enough to share.” Listen to the podcast to get the whole story.
