Through the course of this webinar, together with Human Resources Online’s Advisory Panel member, let’s re-imagine BCP: Business Continuity Plans or Business Confidence in People?

HR’s long-term focus amid the COVID-19 outbreak is to ensure organisations are prepared so that the workforce comes out ahead of the competition when the situation improves. While continuity and contingency planning are important, you must ensure productivity and efficiency levels do not dip. 

In this 60-minute session, delve into your BCP and identify what it entails for your organisation and people leaders. While managing the crisis is pivotal, let’s also have some foresight on how HR can make headway in business recovery. Even during a pandemic, understand why using a people lens to empathise and motivate your workforce will help to sustain your business – every little thing counts.
