Risen Bedell Voges Withers

We know right now is a difficult time for many employers as impacts from COVID-19 continue to develop. MT|SHRM will be hosting a webinar on April 15 to discuss ways in which employers can develop mitigating actions to prevent further loss and start to shift their focus towards re-engaging their workforce and repositioning their business.
As employers feel the effects and plan for the future impact of the Coronavirus, it's imperative that organizations proactively manage their workforce to respond to the outbreak and its potential workplace disruption.

Join us for a 1-hour webinar which will provide clarity on:
