    Ages and stages

    According to the Harvard Business Review, "in four year, Millennials--the people born between 1977 and 1997--will account for nearly half the employees in the world." With Boomers and Traditionalists still in the workforce, we have begun preparing for the realities of an aging workforce. And, as generation 2020 joins these generations, along with generations X and Y, organizations may soon have an unprecedented five generation in the workplace at once. This creates an incredible opportunity to transcend generational differences and create safe, age-friendly workplaces.  

    In this course, we explore the differences and similarities between the generations with a focus on productive communication, effective training, and a safe workplace.

    Safe driving

    When we get behind the wheel, we make choices. Some good and some bad. Some increase our risk of an accident, like speeding, texting, or tailgating. Some decrease our risk, like being well-rested, focusing on the road, and wearing our seat belt. Why don't we always choose behaviors that decrease our risk? Maybe it's because we don't really think that a vehicle crash will happen to us. In this course, we spend some time considering what you can do to make good choices when you're driving, not just for yourself, but for the people around you and the people who matter to you most.

    Morning: Claims and return-to-work basics: My employee is injured--what do I do now? [9 to 11:30 a.m.]
    Are you new to managing worker's compensation for your company, or do you just need a refresher on what to do when someone reports an injury? Then this training is perfect for you! We discuss the initial claim process, forms, and return-to-work steps. We cover the basics of time-loss payments and what to expect from SAIF as we decide compensability of the claim. Come prepared to also navigate through submitting an 801 form online and uploading documents.  

    Afternoon: Claims and return-to-work: When a claim is not so basic [1 to 3:30 p.m.]

    The majority of claims are straightforward, but the ones we remember are those that are not. Join us for this claim/return-to-work/EAIP training that discusses occupational disease vs. injury, pre-existing conditions, combined conditions, and the process we use to make a decision and manage those types of claim issues. We also discuss the importance of regular job descriptions, a formal return-to-work program, and review how employment issues/changes (termination/quit/seasonal work) can affect a claim. And we provide you with proactive steps to help minimize cost exposure and maximize your return-to-work and EAIP benefits.

    Dealing with the dysfunctional employee

    Back by popular demand! Long gone are the days of Miss Manners and etiquette classes that provided a common means for respectful interaction within society. Inaccurate beliefs abound among employees, who sometimes come to work with attitudes about personal freedom that frequently are at odds with employment policies and the definition of "right" (such as provocative speech and texting, piercings, and medical marijuana). This presentation addresses an employer's right to prohibit inappropriate conduct and maintain a work environment best suited to the company's needs.
