You've embraced the new normal—so what's next?

As organizations continue to adapt their workforce strategies to the impacts of COVID-19, HR and payroll leaders have begun shifting from reactive, short-term responses to proactive, forward-looking measures.

Safeguard Global and Workday recently explored the tactical and strategic actions HR and payroll leaders can take to help their organizations through the next phase of crisis and redefine business success in an unpredictable new world.

In our discussion, we covered:

  • Providing stability for employees around the world
  • Complying with ongoing regulatory changes
  • Balancing cost-cutting measures with strategic initiatives
  • Forecasting and planning for an uncertain future

Our panel included:
