How Covid-19 is changing the workplace and the role HRM can play
The Covid-19 pandemic is changing the way we work and adding new and unfamiliar pressure on organisations, leaders and employees. The big question is how can Human Resource Management (HRM) practitioners respond and help ease the stress associated with an ever-moving landscape?
On Thursday, 10 September 2020, Sacap (the South African College of Applied Psychology) is hosting a webinar with industrial organisational psychologist Ashley Motene and organisation development consultant Beatrice Attrill focusing on 'how Covid-19 is changing the workplace and the role HRM can play'. They will discuss a variety of themes relating to the organisational changes and how they are influencing people management, education, training and practice.
These highly experienced leaders and educators will also talk about the role that they perceive HRM practitioners can play during the pandemic and how they can offer practical ways of supporting workers and balancing business demands.
The duo will also touch on the lessons being learned about psychosocial wellbeing in the workplace in these unprecedented times. These may be weighty themes, but they are important ones to explore.
Human Resource Management encompasses numerous people-related processes such as recruiting, selecting, providing orientation, motivating employees, ensuring employees safety, welfare and healthy measures in compliance with labour laws of the land, among others. Never has this field of expertise been more relevant in the workforce before.
