About the Event
Description: 2020 brought about a new reality for today’s workforce. As health organizations, governments, and employers worked to stifle the spread of COVID-19, efforts to communicate rapidly-changing policies, best practices, and updates varied significantly from source to source. With only the 1918 influenza pandemic and real-time situations across China, Italy, and other hard-hit countries to serve as a precedent, many were left with an overwhelming feeling of “What do I do now?” and “What do we do next?” Employers across the globe relied on front-line managers to keep workers billable, accessible, healthy, and calm as businesses closed offices, schools shut down, and the economy battled with volatility. Managers found their staff dealing with the new reality of virtual workspaces, homeschooling, and/or maintaining adequate communication with the outside world. Come learn how managers from large to small corporations and a water/power utility successfully navigated the pandemic and emerged on the other side.
