A2Y Chamber Event-COVID-19: The Road to Recovery
The world, the economy, and the workplace have all changed dramatically as a result of COVID-19. These changes impact all of us in many different ways, but three of the most important relate to how:
- Existing businesses can best re-enter the economy in the safest and most prudent fashion;
- Organizations and individuals can remain informed with credible and useful information related to relevant policy and procedural changes as we re-engage in a post COVID-19 economy;
- Individuals can best position themselves to re-enter the job market
Re-engaging in the economy: While everyone is eager for economic recovery, businesses and organizations continue to rightly prioritize the public health and safety impacts in any decisions to re-engage. Hear from experts from the Washtenaw County Health Department about where we are at in this process, what the best safety advice is to keep employees and clients safe. Also hear from Kroger about how they were able to adapt to a new normal and what we can learn from that in a phased recovery.
