The Co-operative Bank and its partners, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, AXA and Assurant, are hosting a free webinar on 22 September 2021 at 11.00-12.00pm to share guidance and support about how to rebuild and protect your business post the pandemic.

The last 18 months have without doubt been a very challenging time for businesses big and small and as we start to adapt to whatever our new normal is, it’s important that we’re armed with as much knowledge as possible to ensure businesses can begin to thrive again. So The Co-operative Bank together with experts from AXA insurance and Assurant will host a webinar that will explore:

  • The ending of furlough and the impact on HR
  • EU settlement grants and how to apply
  • IT security and fraud – how to stay safe in an agile working environment
  • Staying one step ahead of the latest fraud scams
  • Tips for rebuilding post the pandemic
  • The importance of fostering equality, culture and diversity in the workplace

Plus our expert panel will be available to answer any specific questions during our Q&A session. Please send through any questions you have ahead of the event.
