Webinar: Navigating Through COVID-19: Our HR Journey
Free to ACSA Members, $59 for non-members
When?: March 11, 2021 at 3 PM Eastern
What?: This webinar will go over Bently’s approach to HR in the midst of Covid. While addressing some general HR information like laws, OSHA mandates, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act, our speakers will also highlight specifically how they and their team have responded to the current environment and the changes that have come because of it. As Bently operates in two states (Nevada and California), their journey with Cal/OSHA will be highlighted, as well as standard operating procedures, the “Bently Way” of addressing sick time, precaution, travel policies, and COVID time, what they have learned about COVID vaccines and when policies should be encouraged vs. mandated.
