Project Management Recruitment Realities in a COVID-19 World

Throughout the lockdown period on our Wednesday afternoon #PMOwfh sessions we have been hearing about PMO practitioner’s situations – some furloughed; some with contracts cancelled; others working at home and some securing new roles.

In the early days I think most of us would agree that there wasn’t any clear picture about what was happening or what to expect in terms of our futures.

In this latest recording you’ll see the session from John plus our poll; a short sessions on different modes of working as a PMO practitioner and there’s some specific insights into PMO recruitment too.
