The Future of Work: Covid-19’s impact and beyond in the chemical industry
Tuesday, 14 July | 11:00 AM Dubai time
Many sectors have been influenced by COVID-19 and the GCC petrochemical industry has not been spared. The industry has seen demand for certain products drop and cost containment measures have become top priority for management teams, including assessments of people costs.
However, while crises force companies to shift their focus towards more tactical topics and short-term impact, they also tend to accelerate change, particularly in terms of the adaptation of technology. At the same time, people are uncertain and in addition, this particular crisis has had a severe impact on the way lots of us go about our day-to-day work.
This sets the scene for well-managed companies with mature HR practices to use the current downturn as an opportunity to positively impact their employees’ engagement, as well as prepare themselves for the Future of Work.
In this webinar, Mercer and Oliver Wyman will discuss the short-term implications of COVID-19 but concentrate on how companies can pivot towards a more strategic, future focused view by re-organizing their HR activities and priorities.
