    Trends in Total Rewards Strategies During COVID-19

    COVID-19 has really changed the way we do business today. Total Rewards Strategies have become critical to talent attraction and retention as Companies are making decisions to either transition their business to a full remote workplace setting, return back into the traditional office environment pre-COVID, or a mixture of both. 

    Learning Objectives 

    • Addressing Critical HR Issues with Talent Attraction & Retention – Attracting & Retaining Talent has always been a critical aspect of HR. Learn what organizations are doing to address the Critical HR Talent Issues during COVID-19 and ensure your Companies are prepared to address the future.
    • A Paradigm Shift in HR’s Role – HR’s Role has become more strategically operational in nature than it’s ever been as we ensure Companies provide a safe workplace setting but also ensure that businesses operate as effectively and efficiently as possible in the world we live in today.
    • Trends in Total Rewards Strategies – Best Practices Surveys will share how Companies are providing total rewards as we face the challenges created by COVID-19.
