Our partner, HRM Services, can also provide full service outsourced HR solution to help reduce costs, save time, and build stronger teams. On a monthly basis, Jodi Schafer, Principal, provides information on employment law updates and human resources tips. This month, Jodie speaks with special guest Cliff Hammond, shareholder and employment law attorney with Foster, Swift, Collins & Smith, PC, about how to prevent sexual and discriminatory harassment in the workplace.

During the message, Cliff emphasizes the need for strong policies that address appropriate and professional behavior; however, the real take-away is the need for ongoing training at the management and supervisory level. Proactive conversations can keep you out of hot water and Cliff walks us through how to do exactly that!
