STUDY OVERVIEW


With the possibility of a flu pandemic always present, companies face the temporary loss of large portions of their work force on any given year. While that’s a worrisome possibility for any organization, it’s especially daunting for public service companies such as utilities and telecommunication firms. What sort of attendance and pay policies should organizations have to handle a flu-like pandemic? This benchmarking exchange was designed to gain insights into what policies or procedures organizations in the U.S. have developed to manage their workforces during a flu-like pandemic. This study examines policies for union and nonunion employees who are not ill but who have been in contact with infected people.

Disaster planning and personnel executives from all industries can use this research to compare - or begin creating - their own attendance and pay policies to address a flu-like pandemic.

KEY TOPICS

Attendance/Pay Policies for Union and Nonunion Workers
Return-to-Work Requirements
Travel Policies
Child-Care Policies
Planning Polices for Vendors/Contractors and Employee Questions

KEY METRICS

Respondents’ data is segmented in two views: the total benchmark class and the utility industry segment. For workforce policies, survey data is further segmented by union and nonunion segments.

Data includes the percent of companies with:
Various Policies for Employees with Affected Household/Nonhousehold Members
Various Policies for Flexible Worksite/Work Hours
Various Policies for Sequestering Workers at Work Site to Maintain Operations
Different Types of Compensation for Nonunion Workers Working Overtime during Pandemic
Specific Return-to-Work Requirements for Employees & Family Members No Longer Infectious
Different Levels of Restriction on Travel
Child-care Provisions if Schools are Closed
Requirements for Vendors to Develop Pandemic Preparedness Plans
Policies for Contractors at Job Site
Different Plans to Assist Employees with Pandemic Questions

SAMPLE KEY FINDINGS

It is evident that a lot of companies have not thought through a pandemic scenario and have designed policies around non-pandemic type of conditions. For instance, half of the benchmark class require a physician release as a back-to-work requirement although doctor offices will be overrun with patients during a pandemic.
