Join the PPA Forum to Discuss the Implications of COVID-19 for Firm Organization and HR Practices
Updated: Mar 26, 2020
While the world is facing a global health crisis due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our main concern should be obviously on tackling the public health threat! At the same time, it becomes clear that the Coronavirus-shock will significantly alter firms’ operations and supply chains, as well as the way firms organize and manage their human resources. We invite you to leverage the PPA platform to share ideas and solutions in order to most effectively learn from the current situation. Join the discussion in the PPA Forum to share your thoughts or to post your questions to the research community or fellow HR practitioners.
Predictive People Analytics (PPA) was founded to strengthen the exchange between frontier academic researchers and HR practitioners, thereby generating new insights. After the successful first PPA Summit last year and before the second Summit will take place in November 2020, we launched a Forum on our website to facilitate the knowledge exchange between industry and academia. We would like to kickstart the PPA Forum with a discussion on the business implications of the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are interested in your views and experiences on how the Coronavirus pandemic affects your company's workforce practices. Which challenges have you faced so far and which new solutions, including digital ones, have you tried out? For instance, as more and more employees have to work from home, how has it affected your firm’s organization and HR? As more and more inter-city and international travel bans are imposed, how have communication flows been adjusted? Which further developments do you expect in the short- and long-run?
We will support the discussion with regular interactive polls and weekly highlights from academic research on topics such as: “Does working from home work?”, “How does digitization affect workplace communication?”, “How to improve performance of virtual teams?” Among others, we will tailor our selection to the issues raised in the forum. We also call on other researchers to join the discussion and share their knowledge and insights.
We are looking forward to your contributions!
