Virtual Class - On-Demand - HR and Labor Relations in 2021 - Four New Things to Watch For

In this seminar, Mike Miller and the team from Eckert Seamans (sponsor of the PSATS HR & Labor Management Institute) will detail what to expect in human resources and labor relations for 2021, including:

  • ·       Work from Home: Post-COVID-19 (is that a thing?), many employees have come to like working from home. How do we evaluate and address those requests? What should an employer consider in deciding whether to allow work from home?
  • ·       Employee Stress and Coping: We expect to see continued effects from COVID-19 through 2021 including more mental health claims. What do we do and how do we do it with respect to handling these claims?
  • ·       Compensation and Bargaining:  The advent of Hazard Pay—besides being difficult to discuss—has started a discussion regarding alignment of pay with desired outcomes.  How to continue that conversation so that base pay is less dependent on seniority.
  • ·       Management:  COVID-19 has demonstrated how necessary it is to communicate and manage staff fears, received information and, as always, employees gone wrong.  What have we learned and what can we do better?

As always, this seminar will be designed to spark discussion and create value for townships by giving them insight into what Eckert is seeing and anticipating for 2021.
