[MaGIC Webinar] Handling Legal/HR-IR Challenges

In light of the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO) and MaGIC’s recent survey having conclusive data that only 2.9% of start-ups are confident in surviving through MCO -  MaGIC will be bringing you its Webinar series, a platform for online live sessions with industry experts and entrepreneurs to shed light on the various ways to strategise and thrive in a time of crisis, such as the one brought about by the COVID-19.

Each topic in the series will dive into the different areas of business and offer tools and insights for business sustainability, followed by a Q&A session. We at MaGIC will strive to provide a platform of support for our entrepreneurs as best we can.

The Session

Industrial relation is an essential aspect of running a business. Employees who can work efficiently and are allowed to achieve their full potential is a sign of a good and healthy industrial relation in a company.

An IR manager is responsible for directing employee relations functions; from developing IR policies to ensuring policies are constantly applied, they are responsible for employee dispute resolution procedures, taking appropriate action to correct any employee relation issues.

In this second part of Reignite series, we’ll be covering the importance of proper business structures and doing business with the most optimal legal entity as well as get an insight in how to handle HR issues in difficult times.
