Post-COVID19 – Managing Change at The Workplace

Introduction

It is increasingly clear our era will be defined by a fundamental schism: the period before COVID-19 and the new normal that will emerge in the post-viral era: the “next normal.”

Helping employees navigate through such extreme change is critical to organizations’ short-term and longer-term survival. Consider this – we’re coming out of one of the lowest unemployment periods in history when the fight for quality talent was fierce. While unemployment is increasing in some areas, other areas are desperate for qualified, skilled employees.

Once our current situation recedes, the war for talent will once again heat up as organizations try to move swiftly to hire. Building bonds with employees now by helping them manage change could be the difference between quickly re-establishing performance versus lagging the pack.
