2020 Human Resources Workshop

November 9 in Kenner and Online

We're all in this together.

This year has changed the way people work…possibly forever. Is your organization keeping up? Are you ready for what “work” looks like in 2021 and beyond? This workshop will cover the key factors in the evolution of your organization. You’ll get up to date on managing a remote team, cybersecurity risks, diversity initiatives, employee well-being, and more.

Join us in-person or online!

Since Louisiana has moved to Phase 3, we are moving forward with both an in-person and online option for attendees. All state and local mandates/guidelines will be followed, which means:

  • In-person attendance will be limited to allow more space between people.
  • Masks will be required.

We are closely monitoring public health guidelines with the understanding that things could change quickly and could ultimately have to go all-virtual. In that case, all in-person registrants will be transferred to the virtual option. If you prefer to cancel, you will be given a full refund.

With the recent pandemic, many organizations were forced to allow employees to work remotely, presenting a variety of logistical and security challenges.

And some organizations may find themselves wanting to embrace the flexibility, reduction in overhead, and other benefits remote work environments present.

How to Have Uncomfortable Conversations in the Workplace
