This summer our nation has experienced numerous environmental disasters affecting thousands of Americans. From the fires in Oregon and Montana, to Hurricane Harvey in Houston, and Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and Florida, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected. These disasters are devastating, but it is incredible to see Americans coming together to provide donations and help to those in need. It is also pertinent to consider the role employers can play in helping their employees in the aftermath of a major disaster. In this issue of the Gallagher Integrated Vitals Newsletter, I would like to offer a link to a set of resources from Gallagher for employers’ use in supporting their workforce. The resources include an article by my colleague Scott Hamilton that lays out crisis management plans, communication protocols for human resources departments and, most importantly, how HR can help employees deal with basic personal needs in a time of extraordinary circumstances such as these.
