The New Jersey Office of Employee and Organization Development (OEOD) created a series of five articles as a resource for those working through COVID-19. The organization’s goal was to provide the informative materials as an essential role to increase awareness, encourage patience, support individuals, foster empathy, sustain coping, and promote working well together through COVID-19 to ensure that a better, stronger organization is built. Although the AAFS is not an employee development organization, we are an organization that deeply cares for the well-being of our members and recognize we too can build a better, stronger organization with a vested and healthy membership. As such, we thought our membership could benefit from the sharing of this educational resource. We hope you will join with us in this five-week series as we continue to work through COVID-19 TOGETHER!
