Webinar: 2021 HR Challenges - How to Prepare for the Expected and Unexpected
Each year brings changes and challenges in compliance and strategy to the workplace, and every year HR tries to make plans to meet them - hiring and retaining top employees, providing meaningful benefits, improving employee engagement and, of course, complying with ever-changing employment laws and regulations. But if there is one thing we learned from 2020, it's to expect the unexpected. Nobody could have foreseen the disruptions that employers faced caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
HR quickly changed focus to transition many employees to remote work and provide flexible work arrangements, and to put in place increased safety and health measures as employees began to return to the workplace.
In this 60-minute webinar, attorney Jonathan Segal of Duane Morris and HR consultant Adam Calli of Arc Human Capitol explore the results of the HR Challenges for 2021: XpertHR Survey Report, and discuss steps HR and people teams can take to prepare for the year ahead from both the legal and an HR perspective. They also share ideas on how to help organizations become more adaptable and resilient so that they can pivot to face new challenges and prepare for the unexpected.
