Leading in Small Bites

Webinar series

As the ongoing news of COVID-19’s spread continues to have a dramatic impact worldwide, employers are facing countless questions about how to address the implications of the virus on their business and workforce. As people are vitally important to every business and organisation, leaders will need to consider three deeply connected dimensions: work (the what), workforce (the who), and workplace (the where).

In this series, we will bring a global and best-practice perspective on how to adapt the work, workforce and workplace in response to COVID-19. We aim to provide practical solutions to help leaders engage and best support their workforce during a crisis.

Details of next webinar:
Date: Thursday, 10 December 2020
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. (AEDT)

Join Andrew Hill (Partner, Deloitte Australia) as he facilitates a conversation with Chris Havrilla (VP of HR Technology and Solution Provider Research, Deloitte US), and Alex Margarit, (Director APJ – Employee Experience, ServiceNow) to cover how HR and C-suite business leaders can reinvent their workplace and worker culture to enhance the human experience and discuss immediate and practical ideas around how technology can be a catalyst for organisational change, how embedding AI and productivity tools can produce transformative business results and what shifts and requirements are needed to better address today’s diverse digital workforce.
