Woods Rogers

You can’t read the news today without encountering article after article describing workplace assaults and harassment in business, entertainment, and politics. Have these people been stuck in some sort of time capsule? Sexual harassment is old news that shouldn’t be news to anyone in today’s world. So why all of the sudden attention and multimillion dollar settlements? One simple answer – poor leadership. Companies today (as before) can ill-afford to ignore this evergreen topic. HR must set the tone and lead from within. This session will discuss recent trends and preventive measures to keep your company off the front page.

Tuesday, February 13
7:30 am - 4:00 pm
Networking breakfast 7:30 am - 8:00 am)
