That HR Podcast episode 10: Deploying HR in a crisis

15 Feb 2019 By PM Editorial

Back with a bang, That HR Podcast talks about the importance of HR in a crisis, and discovers practical advice for women returning to work 

That HR Podcast is back with its first episode of 2019! Lauren meets the HR director of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, who refused to allow a huge pre-launch strategy to be scuppered when a fire broke out in the hotel last summer, plus Deb Khan, author of She's Back: Your Guide To Returning To Work, explains how to support female progression in the workplace, and Tim Pointer solves another listener query.  

Join People Management staff writers Emily Burt and Lauren Rebecca Brown on the podcast that takes the pulse of HR – and don't forget to give us your feedback by tweeting us at @peoplemgt or email pmeditorial@haymarket.com.

  • Jon Dawson, HR director at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel
