By BBN Staff: On Wednesday, the Human Resource Management Association of Barbados Inc. (HRMAB) will be hosting a free virtual conference looking at projected employment trends in the region once the COVID-19 pandemic has passed.
The conference, which is titled “Hiding in plain sight: Taking the Caribbean from Reaction to Strategic Action,” will feature four panelists including an economist and a representative of the International Labor Organization (ILO). The panelists will be discussing topics such as: what forms of employment can be expected post-COVID-19; are entrepreneurs and businesses structurally ready; and what statistics employers should be tracking, among others.
“This session will focus on the region and provide practical strategies for countries, businesses ( Small, Medium and Large) and HR practitioners,” the HRMAb said.
Interested persons can register for the conference at www.hrmab.org.bb.
The COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on employment around the world with ILO statistics showing over 195 million full time jobs lost as a result, with casual workers being hit even harder.
Belize was not immune to these effects with businesses countrywide having to downsize or close down completely during the pandemic. Belize’s tourism sector was the hardest hit from the effects, with thousands rendered unable to earn a living due to the restriction of movement.
What structural, economic and Labour policies will be necessary for recovery? What statistics should employers and HR practitioners be tracking during this period?
