From June 8–10, HR leaders from across Corporate America gathered at the InnerCircle conference to discuss key strategies for maximizing potential at their companies. In a fireside chat, Shaun Smith, Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer, NewYork-Presbyterian and Sharmin Mossavar-Rahmani, Head of the Investment Strategy Group & Chief Investment Officer for the Consumer and Wealth Management Division, Goldman Sachs explored Leading People Through Crisis.
Shaun Smith reviewed the lessons he and his team learned while supporting healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic’s epicenter. He also addressed key learnings across communication, decision-making, collaboration, volunteerism and the spirit forged by a common mission—things all CHROs can learn from.
Being a leader through the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Shaun was responsible for managing constantly evolving safety and employee support needs. He spoke on the critical role communication played in guiding NewYork-Presbyterian’s crisis management strategy that allowed the hospital to save untold thousands of lives.
While we hope to not face another crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic, Shaun’s insights offered evergreen guidance. Maintaining communication and a strong company culture can help guide you through changing needs of your workforce.
