Understanding the ways that cultural and communication changes impact the work environment is crucial to maintaining employee relations and engaging new ones. With these changes also come changes in legal requirements and guidelines and new approaches to handling and balancing all of them. As a working professional, you have little space for which to not only learn these new requirements and landscapes but quickly implement them in a seamless and legitimate way. Use this focused program to keep advocating for employees while meeting new expectations of your employer.
