Building resilience through employee-centric social wellbeing strategies

Without a doubt, businesses will look back on the year 2020 and the months and years that follow as a time of rapid and transformative change and uncertainty. The COVID-19 pandemic was indiscriminate of employment status, working practices, roles and hierarchies, upending the way we approach work, as well as employee expectations of their employers.

The changes businesses have had to make have impacted the way colleagues interact, forced managers to relinquish control, empowering their teams and individuals and caused businesses to find new ways of operating more efficiently and improving the employee experience.

One key difference between COVID-19 disruption and other forms of workplace disruption has been the replacement of physical interactions with virtual connectivity which, while useful, can be a breeding ground for miscommunication and isolation. Historically, employers may easily have taken for granted the closeness of their workforces and the ease of forming social bonds between colleagues.

Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee have been targeted with Ku Klux Klan business cards in an apparent attempt at voter intimidation.

Speaking to local radio station WPLN News, Shelbyville resident Breana Green said she noticed the disturbance outside her neighbour’s home, who supports the Democratic presidential nominee.

According to Ms Green, a yard sign in support of Mr Biden was tampered with, whilst the yard outside her neighbour’s home had been littered with businesses cards that carried the Ku Klux Klan name.

The cards carried a statement threatening a second visit, and read: “You have been paid a social visit by the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Don’t make the next visit a business call.”

Ms Green, a community activist and organiser, said that whilst her neighbours are white, the Klu Klux Klan material felt like intimidation.

KKK ‘Social Visit’ Cards Left at Joe Biden Supporters’ Homes in Tennessee

Cards describing a “social visit” from the Ku Klux Klan were left at the homes of Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee, intimidating local residents.

Breana Green, of Shelbyville, described how she noticed that a sign showing support for Biden in her neighbor’s yard had been disturbed.

Speaking to WSMV, Green said the yard was littered with a number of “business cards” reportedly belonging to the KKK.

Green believed the cards were left in response to the Biden-Harris yard sign, which also had tire marks indicating it had been run over.

“It’s scary knowing that just supporting a presidential candidate can incite this kind of vandalism,” Green said.

“There is some anxiety that people could be targeted in my family,” she added.

“People in the community could be targeted as well. I just don’t think this should be something that we’re dealing with in 2020.”
