AMSSA Webinar: Re-Entry to Work – Key Strategies for Adjusting to Change through COVID and Beyond

September 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

As we continue along B.C.’s COVID Restart Plan to reopen B.C.’s economies, the Settlement and Integration Sector service provider organizations are left with the task of safely reopening their own agencies.

Managing the changes and transitions to reopening can be challenging, this 2-hour webinar will take time to consider the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on you, your work and more broadly, the Settlement and Integration Sector. Discover key strategies for re-entry to work, dealing with change, and orienting to the “new normal” in ways that can be responsive to health and safety, and support the resilience and well-being of front-line staff, managers, leaders and teams.

In this webinar, you will:

– Reflect on the impact of the pandemic on employees and organizations
– Consider the importance of focusing on a “new normal”
– Learn the difference between change and transition
– Explore ways to manage the stress of uncertainty
– Discover key strategies for resilience to help recover and bounce back after disruptive Change
