Amid the COVID-19 crisis, most CFOs are focused on cost and cash flow containment. However, they should not lose sight of their organization’s most valuable asset: its talent.

These are defining times and the organizations that balance the well being of their workforce with economic well being of the enterprise are the ones that will emerge from the crisis even stronger. These organizations have a good understanding of their current human capital needs and are able to prepare and plan.
