Covid-19 employer webinar: what to do this week - 30th April 2020

April 30, 2020 at 11:00:00 AM · London
About This Webinar

Our sixth webinar in this popular series continues to draw on our extensive pandemic planning training experience as well as our network of experts, ensuring the questions and challenges you're facing are dealt with thoroughly.

Responding directly to current developments, research and, most importantly, what YOU tell us, we will examine:

- exactly what your responsibility is as an employer and what you should be doing about PPE and testing, both short and long-term
- how to manage workplace relationships in a time of pressure, uncertainty and long-distance working
- post-Covid remuneration planning: ensuring rewards and salary are fair and workable

The discussion will last for thirty minutes followed by a thirty-minute knowledge-sharing session. This new feature will give you a chance to share the lessons learned over the past seven weeks and interact with fellow delegates.

About the series

As part of our business pandemic planning series, which has run since 2006, this weekly webinar will give you real answers and workable strategies. A highly experienced speaker panel will be handpicked each week to share lessons learned from previous pandemics and crises and examine the specific challenges of Covid-19.

(You can find our full list of past and future conferences, workshops and webinars on our website: www.bfi.co.uk. We are currently developing all of our training in a digital format)

  • Workplace relationships and mediation under Covid: great teamwork or unbearable pressure?
  • Post-Covid remuneration planning: what employers should be thinking about now
  • 30-minute live knowledge-sharing session: Covid hindsight - what would you have done differently
