Strategic Management of COVID:
A Community Panel

How did your organization manage through COVID?
How are they managing now?
With this community panel we look forward to hearing from our robust panel of experts including legal, medical, a People Leader and an EAP. These panelists will share feedback on one of the most challenging times we’ve faced as employers, employees, parents and community members. They will walk through lessons they’ve learned, things that they have done right, things they’d do differently, and things you need to prepare for should another outbreak occur.
- What are the lessons learned and what do we need to know is on the horizon?
- What plans would you put in place going forward, now knowing what to expect?
- What has been the challenges, how did you overcome them?
Get the opinions of these professionals on what worked and what didn’t.
