The third-quarter series of the Risk Managers Roundtable ended on August 22, 2017 in Paso Robles, with speaker Doug Sjoberg presenting on the subject of “Creating Inter-Generational Harmony in the Workplace.” Discussion topics included behavioral characteristics typical of employees from the four generations now present in our workforce, effects of informal social media communication styles on the formality of business with the public, and tensions between supervisors and employees due to a perceived lack of “professionalism” and “work ethic” by newer generations. The August roundtable consisted of three sessions, each at a different agency. La Palma, Indio, and Paso Robles hosted the educational event, which featured Doug’s presentation followed by facilitated roundtable discussions.
The topic for the fourth quarter roundtable is “Dealing with Cal/OSHA.” More details will be announced in the coming months. For more information on the quarterly Risk Managers Roundtable series, contact Ryan Thomas, Training and Loss Control Specialist, by email or at (562) 467-8775.
