A Special Presentation! Preparing for a Pandemic: Workforce Continuity Strategies


Cost: FREE


Are you prepared for a reduced workforce during a pandemic? Health experts state the new coronavirus COVID-19 that has already killed more than a thousand people and sickened tens of thousands could become a pandemic. As such, workforce continuity strategies should be a top priority for human resource leaders and others. During a pandemic, absenteeism rates can climb to as high as 20-50% due to employee illness, caring for sick family members, fear of contagion, or lack of medical, public, or transportation resources. Employees are the revenue and profit drivers of most businesses, so early workforce continuity planning is essential as every person who becomes ill is likely to miss a few days to many weeks of work. This special presentation will provoke thought, interaction, and a call to action by arming human resource leaders and others with valuable information and planning strategies for managing a strain or disruption in your workforce during a pandemic.
