Article

One of our office employees just resigned, and the rest of our staff will have to cover her duties until we replace her, which may take a while. What's the best way to compensate them?

Q:One of our office employees just resigned, and the rest of our staff will have to cover her duties until we replace her. What's the best way to compensate them?

A: Pay them overtime for any extra hours they work. If you feel they deserve greater recognition, you can give them a bonus or extra time off later. You can also hire a temp if your staff starts to feel burned out before the new staffer is hired.
