OVERVIEW The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), commonly referred to as the Wages and Hours Act, is considered to be an employee protection act. This Act was passed in 1938.

OVERVIEW You’ve heard the warnings. Up to forty percent of the American Workforce is in the process of retiring, taking their knowledge with them. Large numbers of employees with 30 or more years of experience are leaving. Critical knowledge essentially disappears from your organization every time the sole individual having that knowledge walks out the door at the end of the day. And it leaves for good when that person decides to transfer or retire. This creates a serious risk. And the problem isn’t just the retirements, or the risk of knowledge loss in general. Having only one “go-to” person in a particular area creates bottlenecks and missed opportunities. Yet few organizations have a process in place for institutional knowledge management. WHY SHOULD Y…

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND Hiring managers, human resources, and business leaders are understandably relieved, excited, and optimistic when a new employee is hired. But the…
