Two Things That Will Make Your Day

by Aug 28, 2020Uncategorized0 comments

We’ve got two exciting announcements for you!

==

First, if you’re in California, have 5+ employees, and haven’t done your mandatory harassment prevention training yet, you’ve got until Jan 1, 2021 to do it. (Wait, that’s not exciting.)

What’s exciting is that we can make your harassment prevention training easy, fun, thought-provoking, and useful. Yep, I said it.

We can deliver training to your workforce in their own virtual session, or you can sign people up for our interactive webinar on Sept 8 at 10 am Pacific. Register your entire workforce, stragglers left over from previous trainings, or new hires.

Contact us with any questions on the webinar or to schedule a virtual session for your workforce.

Second, join me every Thursday at 9:30 am Pacific for my LinkedIn Live show, Catherine’s Corner. Each Thurs I’ll chat with a guest who has expertise in building a positive culture in some way.

Tomorrow, for example, we’ve got Nathan Craig from Culture Insurance. He’s got an interesting take on how insurance impacts culture. (He’s also hilarious if you just need a laugh.)

To watch the shows, just head over to my LinkedIn page at 9:30 am on Thursdays. View the list of upcoming guests so you can plan ahead.

Have a great week!

Catherine

P.S. Our harassment prevention training webinars are fun and engaging. If you’ve been on a webinar with me in the past, you know what I’m talking about!

Register your workforce for the Sept 8 harassment prevention training before we run out of spots. We’re also doing one on Nov 17 if that’s a better date for you.

Core Values in COVID Times
