Rx for COVID Fatigue: Where We Are and Considerations for Where We're Likely Going
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives in ways that we would have never imagined before. The widespread work from home and the closing of businesses have taken its toll. The unspoken question we all have is…how much longer?
This session explores where we are now and where we might be going as we look into the fall and winter months. We will explore what has worked for you to date and what type of course corrections might be necessary over the next few months. The goal is to improve performance and perhaps more importantly, preserve sanity for us all. What else can be done to support your employees and be responsive to their needs? This is the time to do a “reset” to make sure you are in the best position for the cold winter months ahead.Topics Covered:

- What strategies have worked?

- What can you do to support your employees and be responsive to their needs?
