In the face of certain challenges and a still-uncertain set of risks, business leaders are rightly concerned about how their companies will be affected and what they have to do next. We recognize that companies are in different phases of dealing with this outbreak.
Businesses can’t afford to put training and capability builds on hold. Whether the effort is reskilling at the business-unit level or a company-wide aspirational transformation, companies can’t simply push the pause button on critical workplace learning, even as they move rapidly to put employee safety first.
The key to supporting your talent while they support your strategy involves focusing on the work (strategy and re-alignment of your mission), the workforce (leaders and the broader team), and the workplace (remote working, yet aligned to your culture and values).
At Perpetual: we have a comprehensive ‘virtual’ capabilities program. Our virtual and remote programs support our clients in strategy and re-alignment, leadership in times of crisis, team building and team cohesion programs and modules that focus on the individual – covering remote working, routine, well-being and reflection through this time of crisis. In addition, we are supporting our clients replacing kickoff events with multiple small-group videoconferencing sessions.
