HR Answers - Recognizing Disabilities

September 1, 2021 12:00 Noon 
HR Answers Webinar Series

What do disabilities look like in the workplace? They go far beyond the most obvious things – such as modified equipment. How do you recognize a disability in the workplace to ensure any necessary action by HR is taken? And how do you ensure someone isn’t inappropriately treated differently because of a disability (or perceived disability).

Generations and Work Styles

September 9,  2021  10:00 AM
SAIF Live Webinar 

The workforce is filled with people of all skill levels, working styles, and generational perspectives. To ensure a dynamic and safe work environment that transcends these differences, strategic knowledge-sharing is a top priority.

In this webinar, we learn about the four work styles along with generational differences and similarities. We focus on how to use this knowledge to enhance communication and safety and create a workplace that is inclusive, diverse, and most of all, enjoyable for everyone.
