Course Introduction

The COVID19 pandemic shows little signs of fully subsiding in the near future. Governments and organizations are being forced to consider how to keep citizens and employees safe, while maintaining and improving people productivity. This requires planning and implementing new workplace and workforce strategies for the long-term in a COVID endemic world.

To add to the challenges, for ten consecutive years now, economists around the world have measured declining people productivity which is creating a drag on business performance. However, the COVID 19 crisis is emerging as a catalyst to fix these issues. Changes in the way we work – where, when, and how – have come quickly and there are positive signs that the COVID crisis has driven workplace change that is improving people engagement and productivity.

This workshop will give you the tools, models, and capabilities to get the right people, in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills and motivation to permanently improve workforce engagement and performance. Solutions based on proven methods and tools by the world’s most successful companies. This workshop uses up-to-date case studies of those organizations who have taken advantage of the COVID19 (and other) crisis to effect permanent and positive change.
