CINCINNATI, April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Human Capital Management (HCM) company Paycor today announced the launch of the COVID-19 Command Center, an offering that addresses the needs of small- to mid-sized business (SMB) during the uncertain times presented by the COVID-19 outbreak. Through this offering, Paycor operates as a critical component to customers' strategies by giving HR Leaders the technology and expertise to protect their people and businesses today so they can thrive tomorrow. 

A worldwide pandemic presents little to no advanced warning. As such, the COVID-19 outbreak has left organizations scrambling to minimize disruption to their businesses. As organizations are trying to strike the difficult balance of keeping their employees safe and maintaining key business functions, they require timely tools to help prepare and navigate the uncertainty and complexity that COVID-19 continues to unleash with each passing day. 

Developed in partnership with Visier, Paycor’s COVID-19 Command Center complements organizations’ business continuity plans by providing the right data insights and content at the four critical stages - Prepare, Plan, Respond and Recover - so customers can better inform and protect their people and businesses during this crisis. Tools at each stage of their business continuity plan include:

Prepare with real time insights:

  • Employee Safety - Allows users to see which employees are in current or future high-risk locations so HR Leaders can take actions to minimize risk to their employees.

  • Resource Allocation - Provides complete views of the workforce so HR Leaders can plan and adjust resources strategically based on rapidly changing situations.
