Working through COVID-19: AHRI HR Toolkit

‘We are what we repeatedly do.’ This quote by Aristotle is so true in a crisis. In times of adversity, an organisation’s long-term credibility is defined by what they do and how they act. Recent research indicates that peoples’ trust in organisations during a crisis is defined by the level of care and empathy we demonstrate.

An HR executive or team should play a critical role in defining the level of care and empathy of a crisis response and making sure decisions in this area are implemented effectively. During the webinar, David will provide an overview of some critical steps to take and also provide some research that demonstrates the financial impact of getting it right or wrong.

He will challenge your thinking about how we may traditionally respond to an incident or crisis?

Speaker: David Hawkins, Managing Director, SOCOM

David has more than 30 years’ experience in crises and issues management, media, community engagement and government relations. Through this important and rewarding work David helps clients prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from complex and challenging short or long term challenges.

He has won more than 40 national and international awards and is the author of a book titled ‘Valuing Relationships: A common sense approach to better business outcomes’.
