AMCHAM is hosting the Human Resources Virtual Seminar Series 2020 to safely provide an in-depth look into the evolving HR industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This Series includes multiple sessions from various industry experts leading up to the 2021 Human Resources Workshop.
This first session, which was scheduled for Thursday, October 22, covered the topic "Enhancing Employee Wellbeing During COVID-19." With rising healthcare costs and demand to recruit and retain top talent, wellbeing is becoming an increasingly important part of companies’ overall business strategy and employer value proposition. The added pressures of the pandemic have made wellbeing even more of a business imperative, with heightened focus on addressing the mental health, financial stress and social isolation amongst employee populations.
For a professional review of the topic, representatives from Aon will explored how wellbeing extends beyond just the physical dimensions to emotional, social, and financial aspects as well. Innovation trends in this space and practical strategies on how to approach business planning to ensure wellbeing is embedded within an organization will also be shared.
The second session will take place on Thursday, November 26.
