The workplace is a reflection of the economy and society around it. Economic swings and social change impact the workplace and challenge employers.
To succeed, employers must build and maintain a positive, high-performing, cost-effective workplace. Multi-layered, ever changing and expanding, state and federal workplace laws, regulations, and decisions of courts and agencies burden employers in achieving workplace goals and objectives, regardless of business or industry.
