Everything from managing remote employees to living in a world where the line has become blurred between what happens online and offline, means what worked last year could be ineffective in the coming years. Managers and supervisors need to learn how to adapt to a compromised economy and an up-and-coming workforce that’s progressively challenging the “status quo” for work ethics and work habits. New employees may simply not know what it’s like to work in teams before social distancing was imposed, or the nuances of face-to-face customer service.
The health, safety, and well-being of employees is an even stronger focus now, and a sustainable approach to doing business can help organizations to be more resilient in the future.

Understanding how to plan, strategize and adapt to the disruptions caused by the pandemic, is why managers and supervisor’s need to develop the right tools.
The workshops below will help bring you and your management team into 2021 with the right skills. Designed as 4 to 6-hour online “live” sessions, participants will learn about each topic, while also engaging in hands-on activities and group discussions.
