Tricia Molloy, Working with Wisdom, Leadership Speaker and Author

Our concept of work-life balance has dramatically changed since the pandemic. Work is often either from home or a restricted workplace and life is constrained with social distancing and self-isolation. The cues to shift from our professional to personal lives are no longer there. This is the perfect time for you and your team to reflect on what you want your life to look and feel like now and when we all emerge from this crisis. When you learn to manage your work and personal responsibilities, you benefit from better health, stronger relationships, and improved job performance. You also set a powerful example for those you lead.

Ryan West, ARCpoint Labs, Director of Corporate Training

It is estimated that employees with substance use issues are significantly less productive, three times more likely to take a sick day, five times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim, and comprise 65 percent of those who experience on-the-job accidents.  One of the most effective ways to keep a workplace safe and productive is the implementation and enforcement of a comprehensive and current drug testing program.  Unfortunately, many employers are testing for substances based on trends that existed 10, 20, or even 30 years ago.  It’s time to update!

Join addiction specialist and former drug counselor, Ryan West, as he discusses the most common drugs of misuse in 2022, including those that will NOT show up on a standard 10-panel or DOT 5-panel drug test. Attendees will also learn the types of drug tests and their advantages and know exactly which drug panels they should add based on current drug trends.

Amanda Gee, Paychex, Human Resources Coach

Investing in a company mentorship program benefits both employees and the business. It can have big payoffs in employee engagement, productivity, and innovation. The value of mentoring lies in its personal connection. It’s usually a one-on-one relationship where employees learn from the real-life experiences of seasoned professionals. Today, with so many working remotely, having a sense of connection is more important than ever. Mentoring can also help employees feel more engaged and more appreciated, and that they have a “voice” in the company.  Setting up a mentoring program demonstrates the company’s commitment to employee development, can help attract and retain employees and is an effective way to transfer company knowledge and prepare employees for succession.

Priscila Bala, LifeLabs Learning, CEO

Work requires a higher level of interpersonal deftness than we’ve ever needed before. What used to be nice-to-have soft skills are now nonnegotiable core skills. And yet, most people are not equipped with the core skills to navigate the messy complexity of emotions, communication, trust, and collaboration — especially at a distance and within increasingly diverse teams.

LifeLabs Learning has studied thousands of leaders and managers across the world to identify the skills that matter most in this new relational era. We’ll share the behavioral units that make the biggest impact in the shortest time and how to scale relational skills across your organization, fast. The result? You and your teams will achieve more meaningful results with less interpersonal friction while transforming your workplace into a beloved community.

W. Coby Milne, Roman 3 Academy, Workforce Specialist

Most workplaces want to create an environment that inspires employees to be motivated in their work and engaged in their job. This environment is created by how they communicate, what expectations they set, the way managers lead, and what everyone thinks of the company and their job. The result is what we call Workplace Culture.

One of the many challenges that come with trying to create a workplace culture that fosters employee engagement and motivation is the lack of understanding of how a strong workplace culture is built. The most common mistake we see when attempting to improve workplace culture is to take a single action, unattached to any larger effort or strategy, and implement it without considering if the current environment will allow the action to be successful.

When we try to create change in our workplace, we often jump right in without asking ourselves the question: “What needs to exist first, before this will be successful?”

By not asking ourselves this important question, we are trying to build an environment without a foundation in place that will allow it to be successful long term. In order to create sustained change, we need to know the steps to create the long-lasting success and employee engagement we are looking for. We need to understand the Workplace Culture Hierarchy.

In this 60 minute presentation, we will address the importance of intentionally crafting an inclusive and engaging workplace culture, as well as the common mistakes we often make when trying to do so. We will describe the Workplace Culture Hierarchy, and how you can understand where your workplace currently sits on it. We will leave you with a clear path that you can follow to start bringing tangible and measurable results to your workplace.

We will also look to engage as much input and questions from participants and use as many real-life examples as possible to ensure that all information is practical and meaningful to everyone in attendance.
