Wednesday, October 21 | 1:30pm - 4:40pm EDT


The year 2020 is a defining one for businesses, and has had a particular impact on human resource departments. Multitudes of Canadians are working remotely, juggling jobs and families or coping with isolation. Others are on reduced hours or unemployed. The COVID-19 pandemic has also given rise to higher levels of stress and mental illness.

The fall will bring new challenges and opportunities in the world of work. Employees will gradually return to the office, requiring support and new HR policies. Diversity and inclusion have become top of mind in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement. Digital transformation, for so long a nascent priority, has rapidly accelerated.

The Globe and Mail will host Solving Workplace Challenges on October 21 to provide HR professionals, people managers and other leaders with strategies to support employees and their businesses in a significantly changed world. The event will also recognize the Employee Recommended Workplace Award recipients – companies of all sizes and sectors who will be acknowledged for creating thriving workplaces.
