In this session, we will discuss key changes businesses need to make to lead people effectively in this new environment. A lot has changed, and we won’t just return to business as usual, even as business begins to recover. Workforce psychology is a factor in business strategy and understanding the environmental impacts for sustaining a safe place for people to work—physically and mentally—will positively impact business results. We’ll discuss innovative ways for leaders to adapt and thrive while still protecting their business and people.
