ABSTRACT
The article offers tips for employers on how to communicate with their employees in times of economic crisis. In this new world of uncertainty, employers should keep talking to their employees and fill any communication vacuum with official information, rather than allowing it to be filled with rumour. They can also use the core foundations of their business to instill confidence in employees. Let them know that, while markets may be in a maelstrom, the company's core values will not change.
