Working on emergency responses usually means working longer hours and skipping weekends, among other hardships. And some staff may be doing this while they and their families themselves are trying to recover from the very event to which we are responding.
To make sure staff continue to work at top capacity, you should consider the following benefit issues.
- Benefits for staff in a CRS office where an emergency occurs For example: Staff who worked for CRS in Port-au-Prince Haiti before the earthquake hit their city.
- Benefits for staff who come to the emergency area on TDY from another office inside the country. For example: CRS staff in Les Cayes, Haiti, who went on TDY to Port-au-Prince to assist with earthquake recovery
