Jenkins and Adams

Belmont Center for Executive Education Executive Director Dr. Melanie Lashlee-Adams and Senior Manager of Programs and Marketing Bobbie Jo Jenkins presented the Center’s COVID Transitions report during the annual Tennessee Society of Human Resource Management’s Strategic Leadership Conference.

The Belmont Center for Executive Education sought to assist partner organizations in understanding emerging trends in employee development and in navigating COVID-19 specific challenges facing their workforce.

The report was created from data collected via survey responses, anecdotal evidence from clients and qualitative interviews from individuals in key industries that either thrived or struggled during the pandemic. The Center for Executive Education team shared themes and insights regarding organizational transitions throughout the pandemic and offered emerging best practices for adapting talent development to conference attendees.

The Tennessee Society for Human Resource Management Strategic Leadership Conference is an annual conference that brings together human resource leaders and professionals from multiple organizations and industries to learn from each other and discuss relevant topics within the industry.
