We are living in stressful times as COVID-19 rattles our world.

We have talked a lot about stress on this podcast—but I am concerned that HR folks have taken their eye off of an important ball while navigating the health and business challenges of COVID-19.  Statistics show that 70% of employees consider this pandemic one of the most stressful times in their career. What if the stress of this pandemic manifests itself into a violent situation at work?
