The Labour Relations Outlook 2021 will explore the economic, compensation, and negotiating environments in which labour relations leaders will find themselves heading into bargaining in 2021. Connect with Pedro Antunes, Monica Haberl, and Natalie Arruda as they explore how the 2021 bargaining environment is inevitably intertwined with a slow and challenging recovery from an unexpected year.
