Coronavirus has meant a dramatic change to the way businesses operate and how their employees work. Crises of this magnitude mean sudden immediate changes, but they also have profound long-term implications.

In the days and weeks ahead the strategic resourcing decisions your organisation take will shape its future. Critical will be the support you give to your managers and their management of your workforce. Managers will need help. For professional people-based businesses, managers now more than ever need to be skilled in three key areas:

  • Home working and remote management – working from home and learning to manage high performing home-based teams
  • Workplace well-being – supporting employee and team well-being at a time of huge uncertainty, pressure and change
  • Resilience and development – personally learning, growing and inspiring others whilst building resilience and confident

Managing these challenges will require practical management skills, emotional intelligence and personal insight. Leadership and management is ultimately about people and the current situation will require managers to understand and respond to the emotional and psychological needs of those they manage in a way they have not seen before.

Supporting your managers has rarely been more important. Corndel has built  training in Well-being, Remote working and Resilience, into all Corndel’s Levy Funded Apprenticeship Programmes. We are also offering bespoke commercial support to our clients in these areas.

This page is dedicated to practical tools, videos, articles and infographics, to help you help your people.

We launched our third data analyst apprenticeship cohort with Corndel this week. The move to 100% virtual has been seamless. During these challenging times the depth of relationship and care provided by Corndel together with the quality of the learning and coaches has been more valuable than ever.

This is a really important initiative for Hogarth. It’s important that we carry on with the programme during these times. The course content is strong, the programme is valuable and I’m looking forward to seeing the impact is has. Thank you to Corndel for turning this around and enabling us to launch this virtually.

Due to the current crisis, the recruitment sector workforce like countless others, risks being drawn into a short-term mindset, thinking about one month at a time. I challenge employees to focus instead on the longer term strategy and business plan and am keen to make sure individuals are fully skilled in doing so. Courses like this Senior Leadership Executive programme will allow our people to have a much better plan for the future.
