    Topic:
    Managing the Remote Workforce: Effective Leadership in the Digital Age

    Key Takeaways:

    In today’s dramatically changing digital landscape, all work has remote components, whether team members are co-located in a single building, dispersed worldwide, or somewhere in between. Virtual distance affects every digital interaction and impacts communication, innovation, and critical problem solving.

    This workshop will help participants recognize and navigate virtual distance so they can boost effectiveness and results no matter where their team is on the co-located/dispersed continuum.

    • understand the pervasiveness, challenges, and opportunities of virtual distance and identify its existence and impact in their organizations

    recreational use around the country and its impact on the work place.   We will review

    and employment.

    This presentation will provide information for HR, Risk Managers, and employers on the changing legal landscape with respect to marijuana legalization around the country. The program will address the rights and obligations of employers and employees when dealing with medical and recreational marijuana use.   In order to evaluate these situations, we will address the various relevant state and federal laws and policies and review court cases from around the country to see how the courts have ruled on these issues.  We will also review how the Courts have addressed the conflict presented between the various state laws legalizing marijuana and federal law that classifies marijuana as a schedule I banned substance.
