Leading off the 2022 Continuity Insights Management Conference, Dr. Steven B. Goldman, MIT, along with a panel of resilience thought leaders, will discuss Workforce Resilience in the Wake of the Great Resignation.
This contemporary, newsworthy topic – The Great Resignation – is a crisis of epic proportions. Unlike a fire, flood, cyber attack, etc., the Great Resignation is a chronic and fatiguing crisis with no clearly defined end-state:
- What is now and will be the role of the Resilience Professional in navigating through this crisis?
- At the other end, has the role of the Resilience Professional changed?
- Is there even another end, a future end-state or is this the new normal?
- Are there skills, capabilities, approaches that are necessary to transition through this crisis that we had not foreseen?
The panel will discuss all of these issues from a variety of differing business perspectives. Audience participation will be a key element of this session.
