FREE Covid-19 Employer Webinar: What to do This Week - Thursday 26th March 2020 (1)

Recording from Thursday 26th March 2020


About the series

A FREE weekly information-packed live discussion featuring an expert panel addressing the concerns that you have identified for us since the Covid-19 crisis unfolded. Employers are reeling at the speed and severity of the unfolding global health crisis and are struggling to manage employees’ fear and concerns as well as help them quickly establish brand-new ways of working and living.

As part of our business pandemic planning series, which has run since 2006, this weekly webinar will give you real answers and workable strategies. A highly experienced speaker panel will be handpicked each week to share lessons learned from previous pandemics and crises and examine the specific challenges of Covid-19.

The discussion will last for thirty minutes followed by a 30 minute Q&A and we are accepting questions before and during the broadcast. The panel will then address a range of direct questions and concerns. There will also be some online resources available and details of follow-up events in the series.
