Managing Performance while remote working during COVID-19

May 30 from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Managing Performance while remote working during COVID-19.

The COVID-19  pandemic has forever changed the way businesses operate. Remote working is now a legal option and common practice as employees in the UAE quickly transitioned to working from home within a short period. As the UAE moves towards a phased gradual return to the work, key factors need to be considered to ensure performance and business targets and objectives are achieved.

When: Wednesday May 20th
Time: 3 pm
Price: Free

Topics covered will be

  • Considerations for performance management during COVID-19;
  • Adjustments and effective performance management process during COVID-19;
  • How to discipline and/or terminate an employee due to capability whilst remote working;
  • Contractual amendments and review of HR policies in light of COVID-19.

At the end of the webinar there will be a Q&A session for participants to get their questions answered.
