During the COVID-19 pandemic, new ways of doing business emerged, Anthony Ariganello, President of the World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA), said in his video message addressed to the participants of the Global HR SUMMIT 2023 in Baku, News.Az reports.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of losses and taught a hard lesson, but it has also served as an incentive to further change in the thinking of company executives about the workflow," said Ariganello.

He also stressed the importance of including the principles of equality, diversity, and inclusiveness in company policies.
