Laya Healthcare and have a number of online tools to help you and your team in these unprecedented times.

Following the largest ever research ever carried out among Irish employees and HR leaders about the challenges faced during Covid-19, Laya have put together a series of HR Leader Playbooks. Free to everyone, these playbooks are designed to support HR leaders as they navigate the uncharted water that is the post Covid-19 return to the workplace and what will become the ‘new world of work’. Access their playbooks here

Laya ran an expert-led discussion on 17th February on the implications of Ireland's COVID-19 vaccination roll-out for employers. The discussion was chaired by Newstalk’s Jonathan Healy with panellists Jennifer Cashman, Employment Partner, Ronan Daly Jermyn, Professor John Gallagher, Managing Director, Cognate Health and Sinéad Proos, Head of Health & Wellbeing at laya healthcare. You can view the webinar here.
