L.E.A.R.N: COVID-19 Business Readiness Webinar Series - Creating a Plan and Developing the Right Mindset
Coronavirus (COVID-19) has arrived in Tompkins County and many businesses are asking critical questions. Questions like: How can we keep our workplaces safe and clean? How can we accommodate changes in employee needs, like having to work remotely? And how might this impact my business and our economy? What can I do to keep my business running?
With strong commitments to community partnership and public impact, the Tompkins Chamber and Cornell University are collaborating to help you answer questions, and carry on with your business throughout this epidemic. Join community and business leaders for a webinar series, hosted by Cornell faculty from the Law School and the SC Johnson College of Business, offering best practices and answering questions on health, safety and business considerations, and the economy as a whole.
The next set of webinars in our COVID-19 Business Readiness series are created to offer guidance regarding strategic initiatives during times of uncertainty and constrained resources. The first webinar in this four part mini series will be focused on Creating a Plan and Developing the Right Mindset hosted by Neil Tarallo, Sr. Lecturer at the Cornell University S.C.
