Chapter # 0011

Welcome to SHRM Jacksonville!


November - Master Series Chapter Meeting

Designing & Executing Your Company's Culture Strategy

An effective organizational culture is one of the most powerful assets a company can possess, and has been proven to impact both top and bottom line financial performance through a host of metrics. While more companies are coming to understand the importance of culture, far fewer know how to create one, or have a specific strategy for doing so. This session will enable you to do both, in turn helping you create an ideal, unique culture to drive your company's performance.

Jacksonville’s leading labor and employment law attorneys will train on the following topics:

2. The Hiring Process (proper questions, I-9 compliance, fitness-for-duty, background checks, and so forth)

3. Handling Accommodation and Leave Issues (how to respond to requests, what leave is required, accommodating extenuating circumstances, and more)

4. Essential Wage and Hour Issues (what counts as hours worked, off-the-clock work, tip credits and tip pools, and so forth)

5. Disciplining and Terminating Effectively (consistency, documentation, avoiding retaliation claims, what to document, and more)

6. What to Expect if You Receive a Charge of Discrimination (maintaining documents, company investigation, responding, and the EEOC investigation process)

This training is for you if you:

• Are a Small- or Medium-Sized Business in the Jacksonville area;
• Have front line supervisors and office managers who are in need of training; or
• Want to satisfy your annual training requirements for supervisors and managers in one day.
