In the wake of COVID-19, the economy was transformed virtually overnight. Companies were forced to shift business models in light of social distancing, and transition the majority of staff to remote first environments. At the same time, labor markets rapidly shifted from the tightest job market in history, to the highest unemployment level in decades. These massive disruptions present fundamental challenges – and opportunities – in the way organizations strategically manage their talent.

In this webinar, Mercer experts will discuss how workforce planning can help you move from “chaos” to “clarity” as you respond to this pandemic.

Why attend?

We’ll address three critical questions employers are grappling with:

  1. How can you align workforce plans to respond to changing business models – such as the shift from traditional brick-and-mortar to e-commerce?
  2. As you prepare for the return to the workplace, how do you decide who comes back, in alignment with demand, supply and capacity constraints?
  3. How can you reinvent workforce planning for the future, in light of a new distributed model that opens up expanded talent pools?
