VBSR Webinar Series: Organizational Restructuring During COVID-19
July 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Organizations are shifting and adjusting as we navigate through this global public health crisis. As our new work paradigm becomes clear and more consistent, business leaders are faced with difficult decisions when positions and employees are no longer needed. While the talent market has changed since before COVID-19, your Employer Brand is still key to attracting, engaging, and retaining the best talent. How you treat employees as they leave your organization is as important as how you onboard new employees. It tells a very important story about employee experience. Join us to discuss how to lead with compassion if you have to lay-off or furlough employees.
