This week, we are beginning to see the potential economic impacts of the coronavirus resulting from travel restrictions, event cancellations, and the need to prioritize employees’ health while still maintaining some semblance of “business as usual”.
Join Robin and Michael as we talk with Courtney Harrison, CHRO of OneLogin on how organizations can prepare, drawing partly on her experience during the 9/11 terror attacks.
On the show, we will talk about:

Other steps employers can take.HOw does an employer determine when to take action.
