DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, June 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Following the pandemic coronavirus crisis that workplaces, business leaders and human resources professionals faced last year in 2020, it has become evident that the old ways of working in comfort zones were no longer going to work.

“Many companies claim that their employees are their biggest assets, but last year, at the height of the global pandemic, we saw that was not true because people were the first assets that were written off. balance sheets of organizations. I come from an airline background where thousands of employees have been made redundant or on leave, even until today, but not a single plane has been written off or plane orders canceled to save jobs employees. So, as a human resources specialist, when I now hear companies say “our people are our greatest assets”, I know that has to be taken with a really big pinch of salt because the true face of these leaders company or these companies shows when it is the time of crisis, ”says Rabbani.
