The COVID-19 pandemic has caused one of the most substantial shifts in the world of work in decades, and HR professionals have been called on to help their organizations and their employees navigate through these challenging times.

With the situation rapidly changing, and the province slowly turning a corner in its COVID-19 recovery, HRPA asked its members about how their organizations are planning to re-open their workplaces, and how HR is influencing the future of work, post-pandemic.

Join us for this 60-minute webinar where Kris Tierney, VP, HR and Learning at HRPA will share highlights from the recent member survey, and Emily Sully, Policy Analyst at HRPA will discuss key insights from return-to-work research conducted by HRPA.

You can expect to takeaway:

  • How member organizations are planning to restructure or redesign the workplace before bringing employees back
  • Insights from the member survey and the latest research on pressing issues like vaccinations, COVID-19 testing, workplace accommodations, and other health and safety matters
  • Other re-opening workplaces considerations including leadership training, policy development and employee well-being
