Show Topic:
While companies would prefer to operate “crisis free,” such a goal is usually unobtainable.

The crisis could be small—a difficult employee who takes up significant time and energy and appears uncoachable—or a larger crisis—supply chain issues, recalls, active shooter situations.

The question, however, that should be asked is whether managers in the organization have the skills and resources to decrease crises before they occur (in addition to respond fully and efficiently when they do occur).

In this episode of HR Power Hour join host Tawny Alvarez while she discusses these issues and the tools that we can provide to managers to help them be more effective in crisis with John Robertson, workforce wellness expert and culture alignment specialist of FORTLOGServices, Inc.
