Since the first set of COVID restrictions were implemented more than a year ago, one of the biggest challenges communicators have faced is how to keep employees engaged. Through work-from-home orders to balancing the needs of parents whose kids were/are learning online, how did employers make it work?

Nutrien’s key role in the food supply chain made it an essential service almost from day 1. They focused not only on keeping their 22,000 employees safe and informed, but also on ensuring farmers had the services and solutions they needed to plant their crops, ensuring food security throughout the pandemic. At the same time, their diverse international workforce required communication that addressed their needs whether they worked in a mine, a manufacturing facility, in the field or in offices in seven countries. Hear how Nutrien managed employee communications from the outset of the pandemic and how they’ve maintained engagement throughout a year when uncertainty was the only certainty.
