There are so many things for organisations to consider in a time of crisis. Employees, customers, business operations, government regulations—all things that keep senior leaders up at night, especially as we adjust to a new normal and go “back” to work.

How do you manage a business during a pandemic? Or, more importantly, how do you enable, empower, and inspire your workforce to go out and do great work when things are still so uncertain? How can you help them thrive during challenging times?

Join Dave Petersen, CEO of O.C. Tanner, and Mindi Cox, Senior Vice President of People and Great Work at O.C. Tanner, as they share the latest research and best practices for leading and uniting employees through a crisis.

·      The best way to communicate—with transparency and empathy

·      How to enable and empower your people to lead and innovate in unprecedented times

·      Ways to prioritise employee wellbeing: physical, social, and emotional

·      The heightened importance of company culture, appreciation, and connection during a pandemic

·      How to lead and return back to work, even if you don’t have all the answers

Dave Petersen, President and CEO, O.C. Tanner
Dave arrived at O.C. Tanner offering his services without a job interview or offer. If the company wasn't pleased after a month's work (without pay), he'd pack his things. Lucky for us, 30 years later he's proven his determination, dedication, and capabilities time and time again, in literally every department of the company. Coupled with a bachelor's degree in international business from Brigham Young University, an M.B.A. from Thunderbird American Graduate School of International Management make him a globally-minded leader for our global company.
