2020 has been a challenging & disruptive year. From civil and human rights protests to a global pandemic and historic presidential election, the world has truly changed as we know it. These changes are impossible to leave outside our work lives (especially when work is happening at our kitchen table). We’ve seen a quick and drastic impact to our physical workforce, a greater reliance on technology for communication, and a need for employers to step up as leaders in areas outside the workplace. But a new year is about to begin. And while we may still be struggling with issues from 2020, we can take this as a fresh start.
So, what can HR leaders take away from 2020 and how can they use these experiences to inform their plans in 2021?
Attendees will learn:
• How to take experiences from 2020 to start next year in a positive headspace
• How to encourage and motivate your employees, teams, and coworkers during & after a crisis
• Tips for remote communication
