Join us for our next webinar on Thursday, April 23 with Dr. Anita Polite-Wilson!

Encouraging the use of collaborative workspaces is one thing, but advocating for B.Y.O.B. as a workplace habit is a bridge too far! Not as B.Y.O.B. is defined here. It doesn’t mean to bring your own bottle. As a workplace habit, B.Y.O.B. is about getting “Beyond Your Own Box” in terms of thinking beyond the boxes of organizational assumptions, interpretations, and limiting beliefs to increase engagement and productivity.

The New Normal: COVID-19 Legal Developments Employers Should Know 
The Coronavirus has now spread to every state in the U.S and is causing significant disruptions in workplaces. Because of this significant and growing impact, HR professionals must balance a complex combination of issues to respond to and effectively manage workplace issues related to the coronavirus, including: the Family First Coronavirus Act (FFCA), the CARES Act, paid sick leave laws, unemployment insurance, notice requirements, managing a remote workforce, and many of the fast-paced developments at the federal, state, and local levels. Employers need to know what their responsibilities are, available resources, and recommended approaches under the law.
Join NHRA for this 60-minute webinar, presented by Fisher Phillips attorneys Nicole Kamm and Hannah Sweiss as they review some of the key issues and prepare HR professionals with up-to-date news and recommendations.

What is “unconscious bias?” We can’t address it if we aren’t sure what it is or how it shows up in
our personal lives. Regardless of your ethnicity, gender, nationality or socio-economic
background, and regardless of how liberal you may think you are, we are ALL guilty of
unconscious bias. Sometimes it shows up as a fleeting thought as you pass someone on the
street, or a snap judgment you make about someone you meet for the first time. Through candid
conversations, open dialogue and real-world examples, this session will uncover the shocking
proof of how unconscious bias shows up in our daily decision-making, and how it can impact the
workplace, employees and overall productivity.

Webinar Time is 2pm Eastern and 11am Pacific
