    In this engaging session, we’ll explore what a blueprint for your corporate culture and your world-of-work should and shouldn’t include. We’ll consider tangible opportunities to thoughtfully draft your blueprint – based on data, analytics, and a deeper understanding of who you really are, how you really work today, and what’s going to drive your success tomorrow. Finally, we’ll give you some tools for ensuring your internal teams stick to the blueprint, while heightening visibility to it, assigning responsibility for it, and instilling accountability around it.

    Although the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has been around for more than 25 years, the rules around FMLA remain cumbersome and confusing. In this session, we will explore unique and tricky situations under the FMLA to help you gain a better understanding of the law and ensure you have the knowledge needed to address those vexing real-life situations. This session will incorporate recent cases, as well as case studies, to ensure you leave informed and ready to handle the unexpected.
