Kaufman and Canoles 36th Annual Employment Law Update

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Virginia employers have not only been forced to deal with complex emergency federal legislation, but a number of state laws were also enacted that will dramatically impact workplace risks and obligations going forward. This special virtual edition of the 36th Annual Employment Law Update is intended to help employers understand all of the legal and practical changes they face and to provide guidance on how to manage those changes. Legal, practical and government agency perspectives will all be presented with an emphasis on practical guidance and addressing attendee questions. Attendees can also earn up to 6 credit hours toward PHR and SPHR recertification through the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) and 5 PPCs toward SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP.

Focusing on topics like pandemic legislation & litigation, Human Resources, and unemployment, this is a must-attend event for 2020!

WiM Virtual Learning Series: Customer Perspective @ WEBINAR
Nov 4 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Customer Perspective

Presented by Dr. Alan Zimmerman

Customers are the lifeblood of companies. It helps to take an expanded view of customers – employees, vendors, supply chain partners, and of course, end customers. The quickest way to irrelevancy is to lose track of customers’ needs. This virtual event will impart key listening and collaborating skills such as active listening, open-ended questions, empathy and more.

Lunch ‘n Learn Webinar: Managing Equipment During Disrupted Manufacturing
Nov 19 @ 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Lunch ‘n Learn Webinar: Managing Equipment During Disrupted Manufacturing

Changing production demands which challenge the pre-existing equipment envelopes demand maintenance consideration for peak factory output. Maintenance is often seen as directly tied to production volume but in today’s changing environment significant additional effort may be needed to ensure production flexibility. This is where the CMMS can pay big dividends. With accurate equipment and maintenance information and by leveraging reliability principles, various operating alternatives can be derived to flex production and maintenance.
Join an interactive seminar as Infralogix and local Virginia Manufacturers discuss their experience in dealing with changes in today’s production environment.
