Businesses nationwide are experiences similar challenges while attempting to bring back their workforce in an effective and safe manner. The post COVID-19 shutdown has posed many unique challenges that are impacting businesses, from hiring to continued safety education to retaining employees.

Horizons HR Services will discuss what real world obstacles companies are experiencing that are impacting their climb back along with "best practices" companies are using to overcome these serious issues.

  • What are the common reasons furloughed, laid off, or potential new candidates are sharing as reason they are not coming back to right away?
  • What challenges and solutions are companies implementing to recruit furloughed or new employees back?
  • What resources are companies using to make employees feel safe during and after shutdown?
  • What types of pre-hire orientation are companies implementing to educate their incoming employees?
  • What are local companies using as resources for PPE for their employees?
  • What are companies doing to protect their employees and their company in mitigating COVID-19 risks as best they can?
  • How are companies keeping management/supervisors up to date on COVID-19 safety "best practices" and trends?
