FUNCTIONING IN THE AGE OF COVID-19 – RESOURCES FOR BUSINESS
COVID-19 will be a reality for our foreseeable future. To successfully operate under these new conditions, we need to innovate, rapidly adjust and adopt new ways of working, interacting and taking care of each other. On Tuesday, Business for South Africa hosted a webinar on “Functioning in the age of COVID-19”, with Anglo American and the Return to Work initiative.
During the webcast, Nolitha Fakude, Chairperson of Anglo American’s Management Board in South Africa, Dr Charles Mbekeni, Lead for Health for Anglo American in South Africa, and Tanya Cohen on behalf of Return2Work and Citizens in Solidarity shared leadership lessons and practical tips on how business can adapt and respond to support the lives and livelihoods of employees and communities. We also shared information about resources and tools that can be used by business of all sizes.
