There are many businesses that will be affected by this FTC proposed change, and instead of waiting for the final word, we want to help put this into perspective by helping you understand the process and the possible outcomes.

Back on December 29, 2022, the president signed into law an omnibus funding bill that included the Secure2.0 Act of 2022 (Secure 2.0). The new law contains 92 separate provisions that make changes to the laws governing employer plans and IRAs. We are already hearing concerns from our clients, in addition to questions as to what the new provisions might mean for their business. So we’ve asked the experts to give us a high level overview of the provisions, and what business owners can expect, to help you proactively manage any upcoming changes.

Equal Employment Opportunity involves procedures that insure that all qualified persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, disability, age, religion or veteran/military status have equal access to positions and/or advancement.

In this presentation, we will be identifying areas of improvement, discuss how to set goals, and take positive steps to enhance opportunities for protected class members (individuals with disabilities, minorities, qualified veterans, and women) in order to help eliminate the effects of past and present discrimination.  We will also look at the role of the EEOC and how they can assist us in our efforts.

Presenter: Mark Rambo, Sr. HR Consultant, HR Workplace Services

Managing for employee retention involves strategic actions to keep employees motivated and focused so they elect to remain employed and fully productive for the benefit of the organization. A comprehensive employee retention program can play a vital role in both attracting and retaining key employees, as well as in reducing turnover and its related costs. All of these contribute to an organization’s productivity and overall business performance. In this presentation we will examine several key ingredients to successful employee retention, while looking at top reasons employees look to leave.

 

Harassment & Discrimination
Date:
Thursday, November 16th at 11:00 AM CST
Presenter: Mark Rambo, Sr. HR Consultant, HR Workplace Services
Register for the webinar here

Harassment at work is a broad topic that encompasses a wide range of behaviors—from verbal/written harassment to physical harassment, to visual harassment.  Preventing harassment at work is not a simple activity and not an activity that is ever truly “done.” It’s an ongoing process that involves a number of people, a number of activities, and an ongoing and relentless drumbeat in support of a safe and supportive culture where all employees are empowered to stand up and step forward.

This presentation will assist employers in developing strategies to combat harassment and discrimination in the workplace, including policy development, the business case for cultural diversity, training materials and more.
