2020 is certainly a year no one will forget. The challenges were abundant, and still haven’t been fully solved, but they’ve taught us a lot. And whether we like it or not, the challenges we have faced this year, will shape our organizations’ futures forever. Now’s the time to start planning for the new year. So how can we make sure the experiences we had this year help us continue to build a stronger company culture in 2021?

Join experts from BizLibrary and Sapling for a discussion around HR and L&D planning for 2021. So much has happened in these last months, which means planning is going to look different than in years past. So, where do we start? During this discussion, Libby and Andrew are going to focus on five key areas and explain how together they create the foundation of a successful company culture of the future.

  1. Reevaluating your mission, vision, and values since COVID
  2. Remote hiring and onboarding
  3. Retaining top talent
  4. Supporting employee well-being and development
  5. Ensuring diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives are top of mind

During this interactive discussion, you’ll learn:

  • How to re-think the challenges of 2020 and turn them into positives for the future
  • Expert advice on enhancing your HR and L&D planning processes to adapt to the ‘New Normal’ that looks set to remain for many years
  • Why taking action now is necessary to prepare your entire organization for 2021 – changes to hiring, onboarding, and learning and development
