Wed 13th May @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+0Free
Presented by Wendy Dean, CEO of Strategi Solutions Group Limited
The Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown has hit business hard and forced many changes in a short space of time. This webinar will look at the effect this has had on employee motivation, whether they are furloughed or still working. It will also look at issues around the phased return to work and how organisations motivate employees post Covid-19.
Topics to be discussed will include:
Training – furloughed employees can undergo training
What about the people who are working and home schooling?
Recognition of performance
Post Covid19 – how will employees who have gone the extra mile been rewarded
Providing food might not be the easy motivator going forward.
Do we reward people with flexible working in the future?
There will also be an opportunity for questions at the end of the presentation.
