As with many essential businesses, my organization has their office staff working from home, however Manufacturing, Quality and R&D divisions on-site - business as usual. Employees are still coming to work to produce our highly needed medical injectables throughout the pandemic. Our employees are showing up every day to make sure the patients/hospitals that need our products get them!
However, some employees are watching the news and seeing other companies, i.e. Best Buy, Walgreens, etc., giving current employees’ small bonuses for coming to work, and they are looking to us for hazardous pay. If your organization is an essential business, and not exposing your employees to the public at work, are you considering recognizing them any special payments?
Thank you for your time.
