Confusion to Clarity: Communications Consulting in a Time of Crisis
Edward Ford, Senior Director, Client Engagement | Medidata Solutions
In the late spring of 2020, several “fuses” seemed to detonate at once. Employees were weary from the uncertainty of a deadly global pandemic. Organizations scrambled to establish a new normal and care for their people. In the US, the run up to the presidential election was in full swing. And if that wasn’t enough, the murders of Ahmad Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd thrust 400+ years of racial trauma onto the global stage. It was a time of crisis. During this session, you will hear how the work of a communicator brought clarity in this convergence of confusion.

How To Include Your Deskless Employees In Your Internal Communication Strategy:
Muriel Clauson, Co-Founder & CEO | Anthill
Your company works hard to find great employees – but that’s really just the beginning of creating an engaged, loyal workforce.
In this session you will learn data-backed ways to communicate with and engage your workforce that is in the warehouse, the field, or on the road.
This session will explore:
The real reasons deskless employees turnover (their reasons for turnover are different – and more readily solvable - than office/desked employees) and how communications is a powerful tool to prevent that turnover.Why the time period from job acceptance through first 90 days are so crucial and how to make them feel respected and included.
Actionable insights into simple ways to create paths to build trust and loyalty with deskless employees!
