During the hour-long conversation, experts and your payroll peers will discuss the following questions:

  1. How has COVID-19 impacted your organization’s response to an agile change management approach?
  2. How critical is a cross-functional central response team during a major crisis such as COVID-19?
  3. What is the role of a cross-functional central response team?
  4. How did the early adopters who initiated efforts to support their employees and customers benefit?
  5. How can new digital ways of working be adopted?
  6. In light of COVID-19, what have you learned about change management?
  7. Based on the lessons we have learned through COVID-19, what permanent changes and improvements can we take into the future?
