Eagle Mountain City: We had a department head meeting through video chat today. Encourage department heads to speak to their employees daily. Email from HR to all employees every couple of days making sure employees are aware of any changes. Reassuring them that we will let them know about anything concerning. So far so good. Employee morale good under the circumstances. No complaints from residents yet, which is surprising.
