Practical Solutions for Employers in Times of Change
What was already a daily reality for companies – the hypermobile and connected workforce – has been massively accelerated by the events of 2020. With the addition of uncertainty in the economic environment, employers now face complex questions that do not always have readily apparent answers. How can I harness the productivity of a mobile talent pool while ensuring a safe and manageable human resources strategy? How can I restructure to stay competitive while preserving jobs and staying balanced?
Our employment lawyers across CEE/SEE have pooled their knowledge to answer the relevant legal questions and to provide practical recommendations for employers during a year of immense change.
Even with state-based job preservation schemes and financial support, employers will need to continue to assess their legal and financial options to achieve a resilient strategy for 2021. Proactive companies have used a mix of options to preserve jobs, maximize employee productivity and maintain balance.
