The Aging Workforce and Impact on Workers’ Compensation
For many employers, workers’ compensation claims are growing at a rate faster than most other costs. Claims for back injuries, knee injuries, stress and cumulative trauma disorder continue to increase as the proportion of aging workers grows. Addressing the challenge of meeting the needs of aging workers will not only decrease workers’ compensation claims, it can have a positive effect on both workplace safety and health care costs.

Permission to Screw Up | How I Learned to Lead

February 28, 2018, 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Click here to View Recording

Leadership Lessons from Best-Selling Author, Kristen Hadeed

Kristen unintentionally launched Student Maid, a cleaning company that hires students, while attending college in 2007. Since then, Student Maid has employed hundreds of people and is widely recognized for its industry-leading retention rate and its culture of trust, accountability, and compassion. However, Kristen and her company were no overnight sensation. In fact, they were almost nothing at all when a mass walkout took place by her employees just a few months into her new venture.

The mistakes leading to that unfortunate event were not her first and would definitely not be her last. This eye-opening experience sparked her obsession with learning how to be a better leader.

Hear Kristen’s story of how she built a company where people are happy, loyal, productive and empowered. It’s a story that dismisses the idea that leaders and organizations should try to be perfect. It’s a story of how Kristen went from being an almost comically inept leader to a sought-after CEO on leadership.

In 45 minutes, Kristen will discuss:

  • Highly educated people do screw up
  • Leaders, Management and Employees are not perfect
  • Admit and learn from mistakes
  • Check one’s ego at the door – one must be willing to make unflattering discoveries about themselves and others when a screw up is made
  • Don’t judge someone’s professional or personal character by a screw up
  • Screw ups just might turn into “rights”

In 45 minutes, we will discuss:

  • The aim at leadership and how it is currently viewed in the public eye;
  • Common sense styles for leadership to avoid claims; and
  • How to empower your workforce to end harassment in your organization.
