With record-setting unemployment and deep concerns about the recovery of our economy, employers are facing serious issues. Everyone wishes for a crystal ball to help predict what will happen for the rest of this year and next. Even though the future is uncertain, we can approach our work strategically.


  • Balance mid-and long-term strategy with short-term priorities
  • Develop tactics for reconnecting people to purpose
  • Factor workplace equity and inclusion into decision-making during a crisis
  • Address challenges in compensation given the current environment
  • Explore different approaches to high-performer retention

Registration closes on July 13 at 5:00 PM!
