    Topic:  Creating a Culture of Caring: Understanding Employee Wellbeing AND Pro's & Con's of Mandating Vaccinations


    Culture of Caring:

    Currently, employees are dealing with a variety of wellness issues which include, but not limited to, anxiety/isolation, fear of job insecurity, their own or family health, children learning from home,  eldercare plus all of the civil unrest due to diversity and political issues. The discussion will include the current state of employee wellness, what employers can do to address their wellness concerns, and provide resources for them to address their issues. 

    Mandating Vaccinations:

    COVID-19 has made a significant impact in the workplace. Employers need to develop policies and procedures that meet the criteria of the EEOC while establishing safety measures in the workplace. COVID-19 is part of the workforce for the next 2-3 years and Employers need to adapt to the changes to ensure employees and their stakeholders have confidence in the workplace. COVID-19 policies must take into consideration all the landmines that can expose Employers like the ADA, HIPPA, Privacy issues, reasonable accommodations, and compliance of other regulatory entities.
