CIPD Midwest Region hosted a recent session with guest speakers Dr. Deirdre O'Shea, University of Limerick and Ivor Downey, Senior Director Human Resources at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

Attendees heard how the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic has led to uncertainty and a myriad of new challenges for many of us. Employers are increasingly worried about the well-being issues presented as a result of the pandemic.

One of the biggest challenges for businesses who have moved to a remote working strategy is how to support their employees’ wellbeing. The session aimed to provide a set of take-aways that HR professionals can use to provide this support.
