Key Take Away:
Current events pose many challenges for workers. The virus leads to a business environment in which going to work can risk health and life; dealing with employers who must shut down or start up on short notice can also pose challenges. This webinar speaks to the challenges workers face in current conditions and how workers can address them.
Few people have devoted sufficient time and attention to career planning. And yet now is the time, since business conditions have never been more uncertain due to the effects of the Covid-19 virus, economic upheaval, and social unrest.
Individuals must find ways to plan for their careers in ways that do not rely on employers. And yet employers must also foster career planning so as to uncover worker expectations about the future. This webinar addresses these issues.
Why Should You Attend:
Individuals without career plans are not as “career agile” as they need to be at a time when they can cast adrift from their jobs due to sudden shutdowns, ordered by the government due to the virus. At the same time, employers face the challenge of needing to talk to workers about the future so as to retain talented people during hard economic times. This webinar addresses the career-related issues facing individuals at present as well as facing employers who wish to retain talented people in uncertain times.
Areas Covered in the Session:
• What is a career, and why is it important for individuals and employers?
• What makes career planning tough during hard times?
• How can career planning issues be addressed by individuals during hard times?
• How can employers foster career planning as a retention strategy for top talent during uncertain times?
