HR Virtual Summit: Omicron - Workplace Challenges

Omicron - Workplace Challenges

As Covid-19 continues to evolve, and with Omicron on our shores, HR will be presented with many new challenges. From potential staff shortages and absences, supply chain disruptions, COVID fatigue to navigating new regulations.

HRNZ’s 9th HR Virtual Summit will be about providing practical advice as well as lessons we can take from experiences, here in New Zealand and overseas, and how we can support our teams with what’s to come.

Let our summit help you deal with Omicron and the new challenges that presents.

Do join us in the conversation.

From 9am – 1.30pm our Summit will be packed full of useful content to help you deal with Omicron and the new challenges that presents.

We are lucky to have Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Sarah McCann-Bartlett of the Australian HR Institute opening our summit with an Australian perspective on the Omicron experience. We will also have representatives from Dundas Street Lawyers to provide an update on the legal issues in relation to Omicron and any new and ongoing workplace regulations with Covid-19.

Dr Maja Graso, Senior Lecturer at Otago University will provide insights from her research into how and why people respond differently to the same COVID information, explaining the origins of societal and organizational tensions on Covid-19. A thought-provoking presentation giving you insights into how to manage these differences in the workplace.

Further speakers to be announced over the coming days with our programme covering:

☑️COVID Fatigue | Supporting your teams through uncertainty

☑️ COVID-19 – Where to from here? what to expect from here – what are we going to see 6 months, a year, two years from now

☑️ Preparing for Absent Staff – a panel discussion with large, medium and small NZ businesses – what plans have they crafted in respect of handling/avoiding staff absences

Full Programme to come.
