The financial crisis and the resulting contraction in business activity has put workforces and the executives under an unprecedented level of stress. Employees fear job uncertainty and have lost a great deal of goodwill, motivation and trust levels towards their companies and senior executives. Corporations downsized massively, often in very demoralizing ways. While it is not clear when economic recovery will occur it is clear that senior executives have to prepare to deal with effects of downsizing and prepare for improving market conditions. This seminar will deal with the ways in which you as senior leaders can assess the current HR and talent environment in your companies, what different recovery strategies for general personnel and talents are and how to manage the challenges of implementation.
