Connections and communities are crucial
The impact of COVID-19 is bound to ripple through organizations and have a negative impact on culture. Therefore, in 2020, organizations must make a contrived effort to repair the damage and keep culture alive. That’s why, according to HRD Thought Leader Debra Corey, building a tangible sense of community is essential in the modern workplace. In her article last week, Corey outlined her top tips for companies looking to achieve this.
The talent landscape – where do we go from here?
The talent space can be particularly volatile, but with COVID-19 and Brexit coinciding in 2020, the difficulty has reached unprecedented levels.

Last week, Jill Christensen, HRD Thought Leader and engagement expert gave us the full run-down of this topic.
