Emotional Intelligence and Mental Health and Wellbeing: Critical Steps HR Needs to Take Now
This webinar is hosted by HRDQ- U
Over the past two years, the role and function of Human Resources have been disrupted — an ongoing pandemic, an almost overnight transition to more digital and distributed ways of working, and rising calls for more diversity, inclusion, and belonging, all posing significant challenges and opportunities for organizations. In this new uncharted territory, HR practitioners were immediately thrust into the spotlight and became the single most important function as organizations looked to them to help lead the way forward.
However, HR professionals have never faced this degree of challenge and change, nor had they received previous training to help them cope. Despite this reality, they have been running a marathon to develop systems and processes to keep their employees safe to ensure that their organizations survive, navigating furloughs, layoffs, and reductions in their workforce. HR professionals facilitated the massive movement to remote and hybrid work, engaged in strategic workforce planning, drafted emergency communications, developed coronavirus protocols to prevent spread in the office, and created and sustained an authentically inclusive culture.
