For a Better World of Work:

How HR will adapt after COVID-19

COVID-19 is forcing business leaders to rethink their people strategies and priorities over the coming months.

This webinar has leading HR experts from certified Top Employers sharing their foresight about managing the changes that lie ahead.

We looked at how Top Employers are approaching the challenges that abruptly came about as a result of the pandemic and gained insight into best practices emerging from our community of certified organisations.


Hosted on 4 May at 3PM CEST, this webinar provided HR Leaders with a platform for facilitating strategic thinking as we all plan for the coming months:

  • What have we as HR learned from the rapid shift to online collaboration and remote working?  
  • What are HR priorities for the next three to six months? 
  • How will the world of work change for the better?  
  • What can HR leaders start doing now to be part of the change? 

Three speakers presented for 8-10 minutes, following opening the floor to questions from the audience.
