Virtual RoundTable “Working through COVID-19”

“Working through COVID-19”

Since the middle of March, Australia has been dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. Unsurprisingly this has had significant knock-on effects across all businesses, industries and functions, especially those in HR and WHSE.

Speaking to many of our clients over the past 12 weeks, we noticed a commonality in pressure points and issues that had arisen due to the forced lockdowns and the role that HR and HSE professionals were required to take in order to establish BAU for businesses and their workforces.

The coronavirus has become the accelerator for one of the greatest workplace transformations of our lifetime. How we work, learn, communicate, and of course, where we work, has changed forever! Today more than ever, the future of work is the future of worker wellbeing.

Angela Franks, Head of Frazer Jones Australia and Denise Harmer, Associate Director Melbourne were delighted to host our inaugural virtual round table for HR & WHSE professionals across Australia.

The discussion was conducted with a group of Heads of HR and HSE clients within the Hospitality, Construction, Food Manufacturing and Education industry sectors. The topic for the first virtual roundtable in this series was “Working through COVID-19”.

The discussion focussed on the following key topics: –
