Durham Business Recovery Series Event Image

As part of the Durham Region Economic Development Task Force we hosted a webinar on  “Turning the New ‘Normal’ Into a Big Win!”  

The webinar was presented by BACD Client, Durham Recruiting/Durham HR Solutions.  The session was relevant and informative as we all navigate the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic and returning to a “new normal”.

It’s fair to say that your company’s brand image and your personal brand image will be impacted by the actions you take or don’t take during this period.

Society is hyper-aware, hyper-sensitive and hyper-reactive and you have to make every effort to make a good first impression.

Use this opportunity to re-engage with your team and to enhance, improve and pivot your culture.  Employee engagement is not about making employees happy. it’s about gaining their emotional commitment to the company and its goals and the new normal can be that rallying cry to bring your team together.

The first step is to develop your return to work plan and get your employees to buy into it.  This first stage is the most critical because it gives you an incredibly rare opportunity to bring the team together.  Get as many of your staff involved in the development of your policies for return to work, get their feedback and show flexibility to make changes to the recommendations.  Most importantly show them that you care!
