    Insperity business resiliency series - Vaccines and the workplace

    Presenter: Michael Lipe, Managing Director of Brand & Marketing Strategy, Fernanda Anzek, Director of Human Resource Operations and Andy Ramzel, Vice President, Property and Casualty Services, Insperity

    The public/private partnership between the US government and some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical manufacturers has resulted in multiple COVID-19 vaccinations, each showing tremendous effectiveness in early clinical trials. Now, with vaccine distribution plans being developed and rolling out, questions arise around the employer’s responsibilities when it comes to encouraging, or even requiring, employee vaccination. Is a mandate even possible? What about reasonable accommodations? What about liability if an employee has a negative reaction to the vaccine? Or, what about liability if I don’t require it? How do you navigate a situation that is updating in real-time and do so in a way that protects your employees, your customers and the long-term health of your business? Join Insperity for an important session that will unpack the most recent governmental guidance and explore some of the potential pitfalls associated with this emerging topic.

    8:45 - 9:50 a.m.

    Should I grow my business or sell it?

    Presenter: Dave Heymann, Senior Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor, Generational Group

    Many owners treat their business as if it is how they earn a living, or as their passion, or profession. The business itself is an investment, a financial asset. Wise investors know financial assets need to either be grown or be sold. Often owners don’t know how to grow a business INTENTIONALLY vs. OPPORTUNISTICALLY. When it comes to value, we always have an idea what our home and our stocks are worth but many owners have the wrong idea about the value of their business. During this session attendees will learn how a business is actually valued by buyers and what forces drive value up or down. We will also discuss the CORRECT way to grow a business INTENTIONALLY so that the return justifies the risk of owning a privately-held business.

    11:15 - 12:05 pm
