Why Stop Learning: Employee Development in Times of Crisis

The current crisis has seen a downturn in the economy and a lot of organizations have felt the repercussion of the pandemic. Organizations are looking into their fiscal books, cutting costs, and doing a lot of sacrifices to keep business afloat. One of the cost-cutting measures more often than not would be limiting employee learning and development initiatives. The question now is, will this positively impact organizations in the long run. Gallup did a survey in 2019 on employee engagement and part of the results is showing that “employee engagement is determined by factors such as feeling clear about your role, having the opportunity to do what you do best, having opportunities at work to develop, enjoying strong coworker relationships and working with a common mission or purpose.

If you are the leader, HR, Learning and Development professional, progressive thinker, and going with the second wave of thriving and being ready for massive recovery and success when the pandemic is over then share your thoughts with us by joining our complimentary webinar.

Elevate the Human Experience for the Employee: Mental Health in the Workplace

This webinar will feature relevant Mental Health Law provisions and the corresponding legislations that employers have to comply with. This topic will be discussed by Dr. Ma. Teresita Cucueco, Director IV of the Bureau of Working Conditions.

In today’s trying times, mental health issues among employees can affect morale, productivity, and profit.

The need to elevate the human experience in the workplace is based on the reality that employees are the ones who take care of the customer needs and propel critical activities. Business continuity relies on the Well-Being of employees who are sustaining the operations.

This learning session will feature relevant Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) which you can implement as your company works towards complying with the Mental Health Law and as your organization ensures that the workforce remains resilient to any crisis or disruption.
