Join The Conference Board researchers, Robin Erickson, PhD, and Marion Devine as they discuss two important Human Capital subjects for an organization’s employment brand: employee well-being and talent acquisition. Leaders and managers can’t fix the unprecedented challenges arising from COVID-19, but they can provide personal support and assurance to their employees to help reduce isolation and anxiety. The stigma and weight of the issues make mental health a very private matter, but organizations can still help employees by understanding the importance of well-being and empowering them to help themselves (you can read the article here). In addition, most organizations have transitioned to remote work for all employees who can work from home. And with the global economy declining precipitously, most organizations have been forced to or have chosen to undergo cost-containment measures. As a result, the talent acquisition (TA) functions in most organizations have had to dramatically change their processes and move to primarily virtual recruiting. Accordingly, TA leaders are being forced to navigate many changes (you can read the article here).
