Changes in the workplace caused by COVID-19 will resonate well beyond 2020. Some of these changes are obvious—more remote working, more video conferencing, less traffic. Other changes, such as workplace policies and how employees can work together as a team, are yet to be defined. While there are many who wish to simply return to “normal”, there may be no longer be such a thing—at least not as we know it. For 2021, we may have to prepare for The New Abnormal.

In this practical webinar, you will examine guiding trends for the workplace in 2021 and review how COVID-19 has changed the workplace so far—in both obvious and subtle ways. You will also explore the skills needed for employees to succeed in a remote, or partially remote, environment, and discuss how your organization can prepare for new challenges.

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • Identify the changes in your workplace due to COVID-19
  • Anticipate new challenges your organization may face in 2021
  • Apply best practices and trends to successfully lead a remote workforce
  • Prepare your organization for The New Abnormal

This program is eligible for HRCI (General) and SHRM credit.

The speaker was very personable but specifics would be helpful.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio.  You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.

Can I ask questions during the webinar?

Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.

Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?

Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.

What is an on-demand webinar?

An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.

Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?

You can stop a recording and later log back in and navigate to any point in the webinar. The system will not force you to view the entire recording from start to finish.

Can I listen to recorded webinars on a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You will be able to listen to any of our on-demand webinars on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Do the webinars qualify for Continuing Education Credit?

Almost all of our webinars are approved for continuing education credit, including CLE (in all states), CCB, CPE, HRCI, IRS and SHRM credit.  Unlike many providers, we don’t charge you any additional fee to process your credit.  If you have specific questions, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Can I still receive Continuing Education Credits if I view the webinar recording instead of the live presentation?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Recorded webinars are not eligible for CLE credit in the following states: AR, KS, MS, NE, and RI. In all other jurisdictions, recorded programs are eligible for credit. In addition, CPE credit is not available for recorded webinars. Please note that recorded webinars are only eligible for a certain period of time based on the jurisdiction. To ask about your specific type of Continuing Education Credit or the requirements in your jurisdiction, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Will I receive a certificate of completion after the course?

Yes. A certificate of completion will automatically be uploaded to your Clear Law Institute account after completing the live or on-demand webinar.

Do I need to be a member to receive a certificate of completion?

No. An account will automatically be created for you when registering for a webinar. You will then be able to access your certificate of completion after completing a webinar.

How do I determine my states’s CLE requirements.

Please find your state listed here with instructions for calculating the number of credits in your state.

How will I submit my attendance to receive CLE credit in my state?
