Retail Reboot: How to Webinar 7 - Managing employees through a pandemic and beyond

Employment law, health and safety and personnel performance

Massey University, in conjunction with a range of industry partners including RetailX and Retail NZ, is here to help provide some guidance and reassurance as we pivot to the new normal.

We can nearly smell Level 1 but the full impact of COVID is still surfacing. Managing one of our most important assets - employees - is as critical as ever. There are areas of grey and areas we are exploring for the first time which may seem unclear. Health and safety have different considerations with social distancing. Find out from our experts about how you manage new areas with employees from a legal, personnel performance and H&S lens.
