People Power


How do you keep staff engaged after a period of pay cuts, furloughs and redundancies?


The last six months have seen a wave of companies cutting staff and reworking wages in an effort to stay afloat. As companies adjust to the ‘new normal’, which cuts do you keep, which do you roll back – and how do you keep staff motivated and loyal, particularly with what for many will be a more remote workforce?


The IHS Market Dubai Purchasing Managers’ Index, said in June: “Workers have been hard-hit, with employment dropping sharply for the fourth month in a row." Emirates Airline President Tim Clark, told the BBC: “We will probably have to let go of a few more, probably up to 15%."


We’ll speak to companies who have made difficult staffing decisions about managing change, as well as experts in employee motivation, recruitment and retention, and empathetic leadership to hear first-hand the challenges, and the best practice solutions.
