Seatbelts. Smoke detectors. Emergency text alerts. A lot of us can remember when these things weren't a de facto part of everyday life. As we work to the eventual goal of herd immunity, business leaders are asking what aspects of pandemic response should be retained for years to come.

What will drop away and what is here to stay? This program will provide a discussion on how forward-thinking employers are dealing with pandemic readiness, both now, and for ‘next time.’
