NISO Change Management Series - Supporting the Workforce - 10.21.20

During the months of full and partial lockdown, organizations have had to support their workforce in a variety of ways. Budgets have been revisited. Equipment has been provided and deployed to enable staff to work remotely. And, importantly, working practices — including meetings, staff management, deliverables, and more — have had to change, often significantly. What has the impact been on information workflows and internal systems? How did institutions and organizations in our community work to mitigate some of the significant challenges experienced by their workforce? In this webinar we will hear from information industry professionals about how they and their organizations supported the people in their workforce and what they learned they could do to support them.
