Are you a business owner or line manager who has felt a loss of connection with your team while you’ve been focused on navigating the recent pandemic? Are you looking to build back trust and re-energise morale in your organisation? If you are, this webinar is not to be missed.

With two in three employers now reporting that maintaining employee morale is a challenge (Society for Human Resource Management survey, Deloitte 2020), it’s clear that recent global events are having a serious impact on businesses of all shapes and sizes. During these turbulent times, many businesses have initially struggled to live their values, leading entire sectors into rapid freefall. As a result, a significant number of organisations have been forced to close down almost overnight and many businesses have become temporarily paralysed, creating widespread uncertainty for both business owners and the people they employ.

It is little wonder then that some employees have felt left in the dark and unsure of their futures and this has seriously eroded trust and engagement between employer and employee. ‘Embedding trust into COVID-19 recovery’ (Deloitte, 2020) states, that trust is critical to recovery and that leaders need to demonstrate competence in doing the right things and intent by doing those things for the right reasons.

During this engaging session, we’ll take a closer look at the challenges businesses and employees are facing and begin to provide you with the tools to support your workforce and repair and rebuild from the inside out.
