Does My Business Have a Pollution Exposure?

July 27, 2016, 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Click here to View Recording

Environmental risk and the associated financial exposure is playing an incredibly important role for many businesses.  With growing environmental awareness a review of potential exposure is a prudent course of action.  Insurance policy pollution exclusions have long been a source of confusion for both policyholders and lawyers leading to much litigation with courts struggling to define their scope. This webinar outlines how ‘pollution’ exposures go far beyond the typical terms of hazardous materials and helps business owners identify areas that could be potential gaps in their liability insurance program.  The webinar concludes by examining the importance of recognizing the exposures faced and choosing the appropriate risk management response.

Optimizing and Implementing Your Onboarding Process

August 24, 2016, 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Each year, a quarter of the working population undergoes some type of career transition. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, reported that 20 years ago the average number of jobs held by one person in their career was 6. Today, the average number of jobs held is 11. Turnover statistics, including the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), can show as high as 50% in the first 18 months of employment. And according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the amount of money it takes in replacing an employee is over 25% of their salary, some say 50%.

Onboarding is crucial within the first year and more than just an orientation. Onboarding is a process that can directly affect your turnover rate and employee engagement. High turnover rates generally come from poor onboarding and it is safe to say with these statistics, getting it wrong can be costly.

These are all great reasons for joining us during this webinar to examine what a successful onboarding program entails.
