People Management in Times of Crisis

The Covid-19 pandemic took the world by storm and redefined the operational and relational realities in which we live. It pushed Organizations to adapt to align and evolve in order to survive, sustain, and eventually thrive

We, at Great Manager Institute, conducted a Pulse Survey to explore employee views and perspectives on people effectiveness during these trying times. Through this survey, we aimed to help Organizations understand if the meaning of greatness in people management has seen a major shift. Focus on business continuity and providing learning resources for skill enhancement have become the most prominent behaviors required in a great manager now.
