HR forecasts for 2021
We invite you to attend the seminar organized by the Latvian Personnel Management Association (LPVA) about HR forecasts for 2021 where ASTRAL Executive Search Associate consultant Tatjana Kuzmina will share our observations about MANAGERS' competencies and skills in 2021.
As Tatjana says: "2020 will always be associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, health and economic crisis. COVID-19 has shaken humanity and the foundations of business... We all very hope that the impact of this virus will diminish this year, but it is still more than clear that 2021 will also pose unique challenges for companies to recover from last year's global crisis. What skills will managers need to deal with these challenges? Therefore ASTRAL consultants want to share our vision of today's vital leadership competences."
