WDC Innovation Summit Series: The Impact of COVID-19 on the Workforce & Workplace of the Future

Wharton DC Innovation Summit session featuring some of top HR leaders in U.S, including Steve Cadigan, LinkedIn's first Chief HR Officer & Alisia Genzler, President, Randstad Tech. Wharton Club Members, guests, public invited 

 

  • “[In response to Covid], I’m seeing companies leverage veterans from active duty to help defuse anxiety and pressure people are feeling…and also the experience of more seasoned workers who have been through 9/11, the banking crisis of 2008…to mentor and coach workers who have not seen this before.” –Steve Cadigan, Founder, Cadigan Talent Ventures and first Chief Human Resources Officer, LinkedIn
  • With the ubiquitous use of lockdowns to counter COVID-19, the pandemic has created a new norm of work – the widespread adoption of work-from-home throughout the country, if not the world. To what extent will this new norm persist post COVID-19, and what industries are most likely to adopt the use of remote work on a permanent or greater basis? This panel attempts to answer these questions and more, including:

> What will be the fundamental short and long-term impacts of COVID-19 on the post-pandemic workforce and workplace?

> What opportunities and advantages can these changes in the post-pandemic workforce create for businesses and entrepreneurs who are able to capitalize on them?

> What potential risks will post-pandemic workforce changes create for businesses/entrepreneurs and what strategies can they employ to mitigate these risks?
