    ​​CBIA’s HR Conference is back with in-depth explorations of the most challenging workplace issues faced by your management and HR.

    How do certain businesses keep their employees engaged and avoid burnout through even the most challenging times?

    Author and leadership consultant Eric Stone breaks through the noise to give you a practical roadmap for fostering a culture that yields results year in and year out.

    Stay up-to-date on legislative issues with CBIA’s Ashley Zane and learn the essential changes and updates to handbook policies.

    The Connecticut Department of Labor’s Heidi Lane joins a panel of employers to walk you through the complex world of FMLA.

    They will focus on some of the more confusing reasons for FMLA leave that often also implicate the ADA, including mental health issues and addiction. 

    Lisa Zaccardelli of Hinckley Allen teaches you how to handle requests for confidentiality, how to properly document your findings, and how to manage witnesses while assessing their credibility.

    This is your chance to expand your knowledge of current HR trends and meet and connect with your peers. 

    This program is approved for 5.0 HRCI credits and 5.0 SHRM PDCs.
