Managers Responding to Terror

Canadian Headhunter has an interesting post about how managers should plan on responding to terror events.  Unfortunately these kinds of skills will increasingly become more and more relevant.  Here are some of the tips, click through the link above to find more:

Keeping people busy is important because it keeps their minds off of current
events so urge employees to get back into their routine immediately.

Educate managers about possible anxiety problems and employee concerns.

Designate an HR person to be the primary contact for issues related to the event.

Be more flexible in requests for using sick leave and vacation for the next week.

Allow workers to postpone or cancel immediate business trips that require
commercial flights.

Does your company have a plan on how to deal with terror events?
