During the COVID-19 crisis, safety and well-being of employees is the priority. As we’ve come to recognize that this crisis will be here for a while, companies are now defining their approach for the long haul.  

Learn how businesses across the nation are navigating employee resizing; developing and implementing workforce continuity plans; upskilling employees and strategizing for fiscal year 21 and beyond.   

This candid conversation will include a better understanding of how companies are considering the full breadth of their employees’ needs, for many, in phases including stability, self-esteem, mental health, community, growth and meaning in the context of crisis. Leaders will share plans, experiences, successes and pivots as well as what the journey forward may look like. Hearing these first-hand stories will inspire you and your company as we maneuver this new landscape.
