Thursday, March 18th, 2021 | 11 AM EST / 8 AM PST
PolymerFilms is excited to be hosting its second interactive webinar, Retaining Talent Through Turbulent Times.
The impact of COVID-19 has profoundly changed business as we know it. Retention Expert, Lisa Ryan, will provide you with the essential tools and strategies to help employees deal with the fear, frustration, and uncertainty of the new work environment.
During our time together, you can expect to learn:
- How the pandemic has changed business for good – and how to take advantage of those changes.
- How to relate to employees from both a personal and professional standpoint during trying times.
- Why communication is more critical than ever before – and how to make sure you’re doing it the right way.
- Why ignoring employees’ personal challenges will come back to haunt you.
The impact of COVID-19 has profoundly changed business was we know it. Not only did companies have to change many of their work practices, but employees have found they have lots more options when it comes to how, when, and where they can get their work done.
Even the term “workplace” has potentially become obsolete. Companies that never though they could (or should) offer telecommuting opportunities have been forced to do so. Now, the place that employees work has merged with the places that they eat, sleep, exercise, play, and raise their kids and pets.
Organizations that come out of this pandemic successfully are the ones that integrate and master digital work, community, and collaboration. And yes, this does go for manufacturing plants. Workers may still have to show up to run production, but their mindset has probably expanded to adjust and adapt to new ways of using technology and communicating with each other and with their leadership. It’s essential for you to have strategies to help employees deal with fear, frustration, and uncertainty of the new work environment.
