Work, life and play in a post COVID-19 world
23 July 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has been successfully drawn to end, at least for the moment, across the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Whilst some sectors continue to feel the economic pain of the government imposed lockdown, others are enjoying a buoyant return to the new normal.
Following the success of our Grant Thornton TV and Podcast series, we are delighted to invite you to watch the next episode of our webinar series due to take place on 23rd July 2020. This month, we are delighted to welcome Elaine Gray, Partner at Carey Olsen and President of The Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, Paul Whitfield, CEO of the States of Guernsey, Laura Cornelius , HR Manager of the TISE and Susie Crowder, Human Capital Advisory Director for Grant Thornton.
Together, they will explore how we live, work and play has changed, and why, with a focus on the revised future of working practices, corporate culture in a remote working environment, key reflections on wellbeing and a shifting seesaw of work/life balance in a modern world.
Wellbeing in the COVID-19 Era
Covid-19 brings many challenges to work and life balance. Research shows our wellbeing is being affected. In this webinar Susie Crowder, Director of Human Capital, discusses the importance of wellbeing, as well as the opportunities available for businesses and individuals.
Cashflow Management and Government initiatives in the COVID-19 crisis
As our commitment to local business, we have developed a Framework: The Resilience Wheel, designed to help businesses navigate these choppy waters. We also feel that now, more than ever, a business’s understanding of its future cash flow is imperative. With the new support schemes being opened by the States of Guernsey, they, and the banking community, will require cash flow forecasting in a pre and post COVID-19 world.
Discussing this is Kirsty Warner, Director of Business Advisory, Grant Thornton and Carrie Ng Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC Guernsey.
Winning in a recession
It looks like a major recession is now inevitable, but more immediately the type of measures being taken by governments in response to COVID-19, as well as the consequences of COVID- 19 itself, are going to lead to certain businesses suffering immediate and major distress.
At Grant Thornton we have developed a Framework: The Resilience Wheel, designed to help businesses navigate these choppy waters.
The hosts are our Business Advisory specialists Jamie Toynton, Ben Rhodes and Susie Crowder who will take you through this ground breaking framework.
How to Market in a Downturn
This webinar explores how the role of marketing in an era of disruption has confirmed its position as a vital tool for business leaders. Clients' expectations remain high, even during a pandemic. Ensuring you and your business have the people, skills and suite of marketing tools is vital to staying ahead. Given the rapid pace of change, agility and constant measurement of multi-faceted value creation being generated from all marketing activity is vital.
