BREAKOUT SESSION / MONDAY / OCTOBER 14, 2019 / 9:30 AM
Handling Workplace Diversity, Compliance and Soft Skills Training with Mobile Technology
Trying to fix a problem is much more costly than putting the training and systems in place to prevent it from occurring. This is doubly important when dealing with difficult issues like workplace diversity and gender equality in the workplace. When disasters revolve around these topics, it’s rarely clear what the point of failure was or how to fix it. Thus prevention is a must for businesses.
This session will give attendees insight and the tools needed to ensure that their workplace is a positive and inclusive environment.
