COVID-19: Support for employers, HR professionals and business champions

COVID-19 is creating an unprecedented challenge for businesses in terms of adapting to the fast-evolving situation and maintaining business continuity.  Employers are having to implement new working arrangements at lightning speed and communicate freqently and efficiently with their workforces, clients and suppliers to minimise myriad potential risks.  They are also concerned about supporting colleagues as best they can through this uncertain time,  helping them continue to work productively and to manage the impact on their homes lives as well.  We are watching these developments closely and are constantly considering how we can use our resources to positively support you so that you can in turn support your colleagues over the coming weeks. To this end, we have moved the Cityworks network offering wholly online for the foreseeable future. Planned physical events have been converted to webinars, and we're busy researching, writing and collating fresh content to provide you with advice and examples of how other businesses and HR professionals are responding to these challenges. 

Below is a list of all our relevant resources; we have also collated relevant articles from Cityworks and other workplace experts and signposted other online resources. Please let Kate know if there are particular questions or topics that you would welcome information and support on.


We have an extensive range of COVID-19 focused webinars. Recordings of all our webinars are available online to Corporate Members and Individual Pass holders here (login required).
