Presented by André Champagne, the focus of this 40-minute episode was on the increasing need for business leaders to more actively listen to employee feedback amid the challenges of the pandemic.

Other issues discussed include overcoming the productivity gap that results from a lack of in-person interactions between colleagues, how to successfully onboard and integrate new employees over this period, and the need for leadership to provide guidance and the confidence to succeed despite uncertainties.
