Positioning leaders to multiply their impact

Presenter: Kim Isereau, Manager of Corporate Employee Relations / Lisa Holley, Manager of Corporate Training and Development / Aaron Wergeland, Manager of Business Applications Development

As the competition to attract top talent increases, executives need to rely upon their leadership teams to identify ways to retain the talent they’ve already invested into heavily. This requires building a culture of learning, but that doesn’t require a steep training and development budget in order to be successful. Is there a cost-effective way to accomplish creating this culture, not only retain talent but to develop it? Join Insperity’s Kim Isereau, Manager of Corporate Employee Relations, Lisa Holley, Manager of Corporate Training and Development, and Aaron Wergeland, Manager of Business Applications Development as they unpack common obstacles of creating a culture of learning and explore a fresh perspective on having our leaders develop other leaders.

8:45 - 9:50 a.m.

Practically speaking, how "new" is the new employer/employee normal?

Presenter: David Bashford and Kevin Paul, Attorneys, Range PC

During the pandemic, Washington and Colorado aggressively legislated, regulated, and ordered. As the pandemic ebbs, what remains that will continue to affect employer-employee and contractor relationships? What is the employer punch list going forward? Attorneys David Bashford and Kevin Paul will outline the key considerations. What is required with a remote, hybrid, in office, local, or multi-state workforce? Who can be an independent contractor? What constitutes a safe workplace? What has changed in hiring, performance management, and termination? What are regulators and plaintiff's attorneys focusing on and how do you maintain strong defensibility? Bring your questions. Leave with answers.
