April 8—”Staffing in the Time of Covid-19
Even as more Americans get vaccinated and more companies resume their previous operations, conditions continue to change—and it’s critical that managers be prepared for what’s next. Learn what the economic outlook for the staffing industry looks like and how you can adapt your operations for the long-term effects of Covid-19.

Find out how executives can create a culture centered on communication and engagement, and how managers can use their daily habits to transform relationships between leaders and staff, by being willing to show vulnerability to their teams.
