Supporting a people agenda in the face of new challenges

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. This is extremely true of business, work and people’s livelihoods. Companies are having their norm challenged in ways no one thought possible, and are having to face new, difficult situations on a daily basis.

It is at this time that companies should ensure that the people agenda is at the forefront of their decision-making; if this crisis has taught us anything, it is that people are crucial and central to a company managing to push through and overcome adversity.

The KPMG Malta People & Change team would like to join organisations in this mission, and do its part for companies during this time through ensuring that we there supporting organisations in putting employees as a central focus during this time. We are currently engaging in a number of activities around change management, talent development and strategic planning. Our aim is to equip decision makers with the skills, knowledge and mindset to enable them to focus on the future beyond the COVID-19 emergency. We believe that in the race to economic recovery, the most agile and proactive enterprises will emerge as the new leaders in their business sectors.

We are reaching out to companies who employ over 30 people who wish to put their people first throughout this crisis, and ensure that their people agenda remains alive, now, and beyond this period of uncertainty. If this describes your company then reach out to us for the following:

  • 1 hour complimentary discussion with a People & Change Senior Consultant

Have a one to one consultation session in which you can get to discuss people issues surrounding the current situation, or any other people related-matters that might be pressing and explore possible opportunities for the company, for both the short and medium term;

  • A run of the KPMG Employee Engagement Plus Index Survey with a report of drivers of employee engagement for the organisation and by each department that makes up your business 

Given the particular situation in which companies currently find themselves, it is a useful tool designed to identify what your people view as your areas of strength and those of improvement, which may give the people agenda direction moving forward and looking beyond Covid-19. Now, more than ever before it has become more important to understand the employees’ perspective in the current situation, see where they are struggling and bring them closer to an optimal state in the medium term, once some normality is restored  

This initiative will remain valid until the end of April 2020.
