ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
An information-packed free live discussion featuring an expert panel addressing the concerns that you have identified for us since the crisis unfolded. Employers are reeling at the speed and severity of the unfolding global health crisis and are struggling to manage employees’ fear and concerns as well as help them quickly establish brand-new ways of working and living.
As part of our business pandemic planning series, which has run since 2006, this short webinar will give you real answers on what to communicate and how and when and expert tips on remote working and social distancing in the workplace. Our experienced panel will share lessons learned from previous pandemics and crises and examine the specific challenges of covid-19.
The discussion will last for thirty minutes and we are accepting questions before and during the broadcast. The panel will then address a range of direct questions and concerns. There will also be some online resources available and details of follow-up events in the series.
