HR: We Know Next

A worldwide recession darkened the skies in 2009. Economic stress created unprecedented challenges for organizations everywhere. It was a time when the best was needed – and the best was there.

Employees watched as more than 8 million U.S. jobs were lost. They saw the face of their teams change and their workloads expand. Benefits were cut and budgets were slashed. They needed to be kept engaged, not alienated and adrift.
