WBJ Webcast Series: HR Strategy: Contingency Planning

April 30, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

HR Strategy: Contingency Planning

Thursday, April 30, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

HR Strategy: Contingency Planning During the Crisis


Business owners and HR teams have been inundated with issues related to COVID-19 over the last month, and many have not had the time or bandwidth to put a mid-term strategy in place.  Our expert panel will address both immediate questions related to managing employees in the short-term, and give you a best practices framework to plan contingencies over the next 6-12 months. With no vaccine on the horizon and social distancing continuing in some form, most companies need to do some “wargaming” with their business plan.

Join this session and learn best practices in dealing with a number of issues, including:

  • The top HR issues facing business owners during the crisis: employees worried about exposure, sickness in your workplace, flexible scheduling to meet distancing guidelines and more.
  • Mid-term planning: Is your current set up to be sustainable? What organizational designs make sense beyond the current crisis period?
  • What are the resources you will need to support the different scenarios and what do the numbers look like?
  • For those companies who have received PPP funding, we’ll also address key guidelines for managing your staffing to maximize loan forgiveness.
  • Q&A session

Your winning plan will come from gathering advice and best practices from a team of professionals – Legal, Health Care, and Human Resources – to develop a plan that assures your organization’s success during the new normal.  Please join our panel of experts who will help you think through the best strategy for your organization.
