North Carolina FREE Employer Support Webinars: Critical Resources and Strategies for Managing Through the COVID-19 Crisis

During these unprecedented and uncertain times, we realize your organization may be:

  • Experiencing varying levels of financial distress
  • Inundated with COVID-19 related documents and e-mails
  • Struggling to cut through the clutter and parse out the truly important information

Rather than overwhelming you with additional information, we want to provide you with a lifeline.

We spent dozens of hours conducting research and sifting through information so you don’t have to. Over the next few weeks, we will be hosting Employer Support Webinars, and sharing what we learned. During these webinars, you will get a chance to learn about strategies from a turnaround professional, who has helped save hundreds of financially distressed companies during times of crisis. You will also get a chance to participate in a Q & A session with a highly respected labor law attorney with 30+ years of experience. (bios are included below).

*Companies that attend one of the webinars will also be able to schedule 60 minute, one-to-one sessions (FREE of charge), where an EDSI turnaround professional, partnering with NCWorks, can help you assess your situation and put together a plan of action.*
