On September 23, David Niu, Human Resources & Payroll Services Senior Manager, will discuss how companies can adapt their HR policies to properly support their organization amidst the changes brought on by the Covid-19 outbreak. 

Covid-19’s effects have been felt across all aspects of work life for companies and employees. Travel bans and outbreaks have deeply impacted the way people work, driving companies to adapt their HR practices and policies to fit a new “normal.” Although the impacts of Covid-19 have already been felt for several months, many companies are still struggling to understand how their HR polices can be adapted to properly support their organization.

Join David Niu, Senior Manager on Dezan Shira & Associates’ Human Resources & Payroll Services team, as he discusses interpretations of HR polices in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Key Topics:

  • Introduction of the Covid-19 Outbreak
