Keynote Session: The General Motors Story: Adapting and Thriving During Crises

General Motors’ journey during the COVID-19 pandemic is an interesting and informative one where its workforce became part of the “front line” health response having its employees manufacture ventilators under the Defense Production Act initiative.  Due to its global workforce, GM was affected by and out in front early with effective leadership communications that impacted engagement levels very positively.  We will hear from GM discuss worker psychological safety, how employees balance work and home life in the virtual environment, and how they continue to measure and redefine what engagement means in the virtual world.
