Vaccination has been made mandatory for those who work on site. Workers who are not getting vaccinated have two basic options – either to continue working remotely or quit the job. Besides ensuring safe environment in the workplace, companies have to ensure smooth business operations and improve the bottom line. Both management and staff are under growing pressure to keep up with shifting customer demands and complex legislation changes during the emergency situation. All these factors trigger anxiety which may have troubling consequences to working relationships, employee morale and well-being in the workplace.
This session welcomes organizational leaders and mid-level managers to engage in a conversation on tips and best practices that can support your staff members in these difficult times.
- How to ensure a safe and healthy environment at work?
- How to boost employee mood and wellbeing?
- What impact does continued remote work have on staff’s mental health?
- How to communicate employer’s expectations regarding vaccination?
- How to guide and inspire people through constant change?
Admission: Complimentary for AmCham members, EUR 20 for guests. Instructions about how to join will be sent directly to those who have registered.
