COVID-19 has significantly changed the employment landscape in just a matter of weeks. Furloughing, pay cuts, remote and hazardous work environments, and changes to job responsibilities have become the new normal.

Economic forecasters are concerned that these workforce changes will have a disproportionately negative effect on women who hold the majority, or large portion, of jobs in the healthcare, retail, travel and hospitality industries. 

In this webinar, Ruth Thomas, Co-Founder and Senior Consultant at CURO and Jennifer Peacock, Principal at Innovative Consulting Services, explore how you can prevent a setback for pay equity at your company during this crisis, and the importance of updating your job descriptions and pay structure to reflect new working conditions and job responsibilities.
