COURSE OVERVIEW

The outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) presents new challenges in the workplace as employers strive to keep businesses running and support the health and well-being of their workforce. A business’s response to the COVID-19 crisis needs to address business operations and employee concerns.

Being prepared, yet flexible enough to adapt to an ever-changing situation, supports an entire organization.
