Join us on November 13th for our 3rd Annual Business Advantage Forum. The event will be another day of sharing and learning about current topics and trends that affect all businesses today. We will bring together experienced business and community leaders to discuss their strategies and best practices for building a powerful, engaging, corporate culture that fuels growth, empowers your workforce, and builds a stronger community – in other words, how to gain a Business Advantage during these challenging times.
We believe our Business Advantage is the people who form and influence the culture of our firm. This begins with everyone who is part of our team, assisting our clients, collaborating with our colleagues, and giving back to the community. What is your Business Advantage?
This year our topics will involve a focus on diversity in the workplace, remote working parents, and balancing mental, physical, and nutritional health in today’s environment.
Join us and discover:
- How has your business handled the challenge of building an ethnically diverse workforce? What have you done to create a space for employees to have an honest and open dialogue? What has worked well (or not so well)? How do we turn our good intentions into actionable and sustainable steps?
- How has your business handled the transition to a remote work environment? What about your employees? What can employers do to support working parents in this landscape? How do you keep remote employees engaged and productive? What new policies and metrics do we need to measure performance?
- While trying to avoid the coronavirus, have we lost sight of the focus on our overall health? Without access to our normal routines, how do we keep our workforce healthy? What can we do to keep our employees mentally and physically fit? How do we balance mental, nutritional, and physical health today?
These are just a few of the take-aways from this interactive day of executive networking and knowledge sharing.
