Alexander Alonso, Chief Knowledge Officer, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
“Business is not running as usual — that much is certain. Research from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) found 71% of employers are struggling to adjust to remote work, 65% say maintaining employee morale has been a challenge, and more than a third are facing difficulties with company culture. While this paints a grim picture, it also presents an opportunity to reshape and reinvent the workplace for a post-Covid-19 reality….
Most importantly, however, we will see companies reaffirm the need for strong chief human resource officers (CHRO) to weather this pandemic and future threats. A good CHRO can reinvent the enterprise and build skillsets. A great CHRO can keep the workforce going through a crisis and protect staff and stakeholders. The best CHROs are responding to Covid-19 with next-level ingenuity — their organizations are not only surviving, but thriving.”
