This page gathers together the latest information and thinking from our Human Capital and Benefits business on the COVID-19 situation in relation to the Human Resources industry.

We conduct regular surveys across Great Britain and Europe to analyse the measures companies are taking or planning to take. We frequently hold digital events, comprising webcasts and virtual focus groups to analyse the results in detail.

Below you will find the recordings from the latest Willis Towers Watson COVID-19 webcasts. If you would like to sign up to future surveys, please contact Ireland Marketing.

COVID-19 employee wellbeing - Virtual focus group overview

Willis Towers Watson held a Virtual Focus Group to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on Employee Experience and Wellbeing. The implications of COVID-19 has varied significantly by industry and even within sectors. As the UK government set out initial plans to return people to work and school, we asked clients to share their plans for restoring stability within their organisations and accelerating out of the crisis. Digging into findings from our survey data, the discussion covered all aspects of employee wellbeing, building manager resilience, leading the employee experience and renewed priorities for the future.

Deeper dive into work and rewards

We have received many questions about how work and rewards are impacted by the crisis, especially on base pay, incentives, benefits and leaves of absence. Focusing on the movement from cost control to cost cutting, and the unique situation for each organisation across GB and Western Europe. With the varying measures governments are taking the impact on pay decisions is complex. Our speakers presented to 650+ participants the market activity to date, legal background, some client case studies across the spectrum of severe to minimal impact and look to the future of returning to physical work environments.
