 “We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations,” wrote author Chuck Swindoll. With the COVID-19 pandemic as a catalyst for change, leaders have not only led their companies and teams through unprecedented business challenges, they have also had to respond to external crises that will inevitably leave a lasting impact on the workforce. Join us for a timely panel discussion and hear from industry leaders as they share lessons learned in 2020 and discuss the actions they’re taking to lead in a changed world.


Learning Objectives

• Address the importance of diversity and inclusion programs to identify company policies and provide education and support for on-going social-political issues
• Find out what programs and initiatives bolster employee engagement and trust – arming them to succeed
• Discuss key qualities people leaders should embody to successfully lead a pandemic-era workforce
• Identify important conversations leaders must have today to flourish post-pandemic (i.e. health and safety protocols, emergency leave pay for sick employees and company culture)
