In a world where nothing stands stable, revenue streams are suddenly paused and employees are working remotely, how can small businesses support colleagues through a period of change?

Join us for this virtual insight session, part of the Winning in the Solent series of events, delivered in partnership between Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, Solent University’s Solent Business School and the University of Portsmouth’s Faculty of Business and Law to explore the steps that small and micro businesses can take in supporting employees through change.

Suitable for freelancers, micro and small businesses, this session will provide academic expertise alongside a practical case study from industry of how businesses can support their employees in an uncertain world.

While close working relationships are a foundation of many successful businesses, when making difficult decisions it can be hard to go between the role of CEO, HR manager, colleague and, in some cases, friend. This session will explore the simple steps you can put into practice to support colleagues through change whilst looking at how you can still enable learning and development opportunities to support workforce development.
