March 2021 Webinar

Book of Yes! Rethinking Employee Handbooks!

With speaker Erin Rastikis

Join us on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 for a webinar on “Book of Yes! Rethinking Employee Handbooks!” with speaker Erin Rastikis!

Upon arriving at a new client to conduct an HR Audit, Erin found herself in love with the client! No, I mean, really-a love interest in the workplace! An absolute “No, no” in the world of HR! Afterall, “you don’t find your honey at the place where you make your money”. Because of this conflict of interest, she offered the option of being fired and, the client did-fire her. Then after a weekend away with the ‘steady boyfriend’ to Canada, she was rehired because together is better and together they discovered a different way to do employee handbooks….born was “The book of YES!” It teaches employees how to behave and builds a culture of encouragement and mutual respect. This session is a call to action for Human Resources practitioners; it is designed to inspire attendees to rethink the traditional way employee handbooks have been written.

This program is being submitted for credit for HRCI and SHRM.
