HR has had to rapidly shift strategy and workers have had to adapt to ever changing and uncertain working requirements and environments. 

While there many challenges, this time has provided many valuable lessons that HR professionals can take into the future to mitigate the impact of additional workplace disruptions, assuming the opportunity is seized. This session will focus on four key actions that HR practitioners can take now to improve workplaces and the employee experience. It will explore how there is a new cost of doing nothing in 2020 and beyond that can have dire consequences for HR, businesses and their people. With HR in the spotlight, now is not a time to be passive.
