Resilience: The Art of Recovering from Setbacks

The COVID-19 pandemic will be recognized as a defining event for our generation because of the global impact and historical challenges. In March 2020, countries, states, provinces, and local communities went into lockdown. In most cases, the business experience in the Mobility industry came to a standstill. However, there were companies that needed to reposition employees to meet the demand of this new economy; it was not easy to perform previously routine actions. Everyone has faced personal and professional challenges during the past 2 years. We lost family, friends, and colleagues. Businesses have been negatively impacted which are directly tied to our employment and income opportunities. 


How did leaders keep their teams afloat and safe, and what tough decisions needed to be made to keep business going? What did we do to respond to unpredictable needs of our confused and worried transferees? What have we learned from this pandemic and how will HR and Mobility leaders transform their organizational capabilities in today’s environment?

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain insights from HR/Mobility professionals how they have become more resilient the past two years
  2. Learn how companies have transformed to become more agile and adaptable
  3. Hear lessons learned about the importance of resilience
