Have you ever thought to yourself “when did that change?”  I had no idea that was an issue or a problem.  Then this is the class for you.  We will discuss the on-going needs and risks within our practices and some of the ones coming your way soon.  What does the #MeToo movement mean to our firms? Equity by Design?  Why can’t someone just be an independent contractor if they want to? We will also delve into the key elements of culture.  How to test your theories of staff Happiness. Elements to maximize staff retention. Where is your next staff member right now?  Is it human or AI? How do you win a bidding war?  It will be a lively discussion and we can learn from each other.
