Topic: Gen Z: The Future of the Workforce

Generation Z is beginning to arrive in the workplace, and senior professionals may worry they will be outpaced or even replaced.  Hiring managers and HR professionals can find themselves in a tough spot as they work with multiple generations. Differences in mindsets, priorities, and skill sets must be used to strengthen organizations and HR is often tasked with breaking down the barriers that can lead to fear, stress and anxiety.  As generations mix, HR is also faced with various legal issues, including potential age discrimination claims by older workers.  Different generations often have different sensibilities, which may also give rise to conduct that may be offensive and unwelcome.  By effectively handling these conflicts, HR can protect the employer from potential claims under Title VII and various other employment laws.  We will discuss some of the reasons behind each generations’ fears and ways for HR professionals to help overcome them.

Speaker: Ryan Searles
Topic: Active Shooter Response Training

We often associate active shooter incidents with schools, but most people aren’t aware that active shooter incidents happen at businesses twice as often. These events can dramatically impact operations, lives, and communities. While we may feel as though we have no control over this alarming trend, organizational leaders are obligated to prepare their organizations to respond if faced with such a situation. In this session, we’ll discuss how to gather, assess, and synthesize external environmental information related to active shooter incidents to ultimately guide your organization through strategic decisions that will improve the company’s competitive advantage to stay in business, should such a tragic event occur. Attendees will gain knowledge regarding best available risk management strategies regarding this topic, including avoidance, mitigation, and acceptance.
