    By Marta Chmielowicz

    2020 has been a whirlwind of a year and HR leaders have found themselves at the frontlines, leading the charge into a new and uncertain reality. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, shelter in place orders, and social unrest of the past months, HR leaders have maintained a sense of normalcy while adapting to the changing needs of their businesses and the workplace at large. Now, they must develop a plan to face the unknown obstacles that lie ahead.

  • A Catalyst for Change

    How the global pandemic will shift hiring practices as businesses start to recover.

    By Christina Loannou

    2020 has been a year of change, especially for HR teams across the U.S. as they navigate the effects of COVID-19.

This type of data shows that employees have not ruled out relocation—and neither have organizations.

    By Michael Switow
