What’s buzzing in the HIVE?
Are you an HR or internal comms practitioner or perhaps a senior, mid-level or team leader struggling with operational, communication and engagement challenges of COVID-19?
HIVE is your chance to get practical answers to the workplace comms and engagement issues you’re facing right now. Drawing from our expert panel and with input from specially invited guests we’ll be discussing and debating the practical answers you’re looking for.
Why not have a listen to the first episode here and then tell us what’s keeping you awake right now, what challenges you’d like the team’s help with and let’s get the ball rolling?
We’re on youtube too if you want to watch the debate in action.
