The Covid-19 situation is driving companies to scale back their teams instead of growing them; and trying to predict HR needs in these rapidly changing times is a little like gazing into a crystal ball. This is creating stress on HR teams as both their workload increases and they are expected to have the right tools and strategies to respond.


In this session, I will provide you with some solutions on how to put together a plan to seamlessly:

  • Conduct offboardings/onboardings virtually
  • Continuously engage with laid-off resources, or employees on leave; making sure to retain those with the training and skill sets most valued by your company. Engagement may include help with mental health (wellness), financial planning, etc.
  • Prevent your brand from being tarnished on social media through negative past-employee reviews
  • Conduct Covid-19 health tracking/reporting of resources laid off, resources currently not working, and/or your current workforce.
  • Prepare your company for the changing skillsets of the new economy; and how both HR departments and employees will have to adapt to align with new organizational requirements/goals.

  • By attending, you will better understand:


    -the cost of long term non-retention of laid-off or on-leave employees for your organization -the impact of the post-layoff communication process on company branding (social media) -the importance of developing a process for Covid-19 health check-ins -the changing nature of work during Covid-19 and the best strategies for HR practices moving forward

    While Canada has been on ‘pause’ for the last months, Covid-19 will remain with us despite the gradual re-opening of businesses and schools. It is a situation that will continuously have to be responded to at a rapid pace for the foreseeable future. Adopt a pro-active approach by implementing a workforce contingency plan for your organization!
