Learning from Times of Uncertainty: HR’s Critical Role in Business Continuity



Human resources (HR) is a critical business partner during times of uncertainty, as HR is one of the first places employees look to for support and direction in times of crisis. It’s vital that HR plays a proactive role in business continuity.

Kronos Incorporated will present the educational webinar “Learning from Times of Uncertainty: Human Resources’ Critical Role in Business Continuity” in collaboration with Ankura, a leading collaborative consulting group with deep domain expertise in business continuity planning.

This webinar will explore the full scope of business, public, and human impacts that must be considered to ensure a fast, effective, and compassionate response when it matters most. Participants will learn the:

  • Core elements of a solid business continuity approach;
  • Conversations to have with local public officials, vendors, and relief organizations;
  • Technology to leverage to manage business continuity;
  • Human impacts important to employees but often overlooked by leaders; and
  • Strategies to weave care, compassion, and the human impact into the bigger business continuity conversation.

Participants will earn SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification credit.


Tuesday, April 7, Noon ET / 9 a.m. PT
