Covid19 has created quite the doldrum for organisations. Caught off-guard by the sudden stoppage of businesses and work, 3-year plans are out of the window as companies struggle to survive and take one day at a time. As unforeseen as this may be, it is not the first time such a crisis has occurred.
From the Asian Financial Crisis to dotcom bursts; from the SARS outbreak to the Global Financial Crisis, organisations worldwide must deal with unexpected predicaments and make the best out of the situation. With people at the heart of every organisation, HR departments also had to adapt quickly to ensure resource allocation, maintain balance and engagement while making sense of the rapid changes.
In this Masterclass by PeopleStrong, we invite Wong Su-Yen for a fireside chat to tap on her experience over past crises, how HR evolved back then, and what HR teams could do now to transform their organization in this current pandemic.
