• The biggest assets for any company are its people. The success of companies are crucially dependent on their talented employees. The greatest challenge faced by the companies in the current world is the pandemic that hit the world in 2019-20.
• Clearly for their own survival many or most organisations had to allow a virtual or hybrid mode of operation. The pandemic threw up the new challenge of mass exodus ranging from 17.5 to 35%. Suddenly life changed for the HR professional. It is clear that these are unprecedented times, there is an overall feeling of apprehension in the employees and in the management of the companies alike.
• As we finally, begin to come out of this uncertainty, let us not forget the lessons learnt. More importantly, let us all share our experiences, listen to the experts and debate over real issues challenging us in the new post-pandemic era.
