About the Webinar
The coronavirus pandemic has been an unprecedented situation for frontline industries as a whole. Millions of employees have been furloughed and are hungry for information, connection, and support systems. This time is also extremely challenging for managers and leaders who don’t know how to best communicate with a remote workforce and prepare them for success when things start to turn around.
Watch leaders from Marriott, Cornell, and Beekeeper discuss the unique challenges that companies are facing when it comes to communicating and engaging with furloughed employees.
