Upcoming Events

Join the Employer Advocacy Group’s return to Lunch ‘n Learns! Our next IN PERSON or ONLINE presentation is Safeguarding Your Business from a Rogue Employee. Learn from the Employers Advocacy Group as they walk you through a real-life inspired scenario where each member of the EAG worked with a client to prevent a rogue employee from harming the organization.

Gain insight into how the EAG functions as a team to address legal, HR, interpersonal relationship, and digital security complications. 

We look forward to seeing you at EAG’s new larger meeting venue! As you may recall, we outgrew the available space at Athens Café, our longtime home base. 

Our new meeting location is the Town Center Brazilian restaurant Fogo de Chão, which gives us much more room and a delicious lunch, moderately priced! We think you’ll love it! And remember, the in-person format allows for so much more participation by you! 

Past Lunch ‘n Learns

Doug Wilder, Dolly Penland, Chad Sorenson and Gregg Gerlach have begun a Lunch-n-Learn series to cover important HR and employment law topics from each of our respective, yet related, employer advocacy niches.  By banding together, we can cover a topic multi-dimensionally, to give an employer a complete perspective.  It has been exciting for us, and we believe the our guests have all learned a lot, bringing a quite unique and full coverage that is of great benefit.  Please let us know topics of particular interest to your company or industry.  Please join us at our next Lunch-n-Learn!

Post-COVID: Employer Risks & Challenges

The Post-COVID workplace raises many questions for employers: How do you protect your business from possible COVID related liabilities? How do you protect the workplace from spreading the virus? Employees– work remotely or onsite? How does management lead and keep everyone productive? What new security issues are on HR’s plate? AND MANY MORE!

Performance Management

What is Performance Management and why is its proper implementation important to your company? Our team of Employer Advocates will discuss their experiences with and solutions for ineffective or problematic performance management systems. 

#MeToo Crisis Avoidance in the Workplace

While the headlines have made sexual harassment a hashtag, and a national movement, the issue is not new. Our Team of Employer Advocates have been advising employers on how to avoid a crisis and remediate the consequences of such incidences for years. This was a popular Lunch ‘n Learn workshop that we are happy to repeat for your group, by appointment.
