About this year's Conference Theme: Customers, consumers, and, increasingly, employees, expect companies to care about social issues and reward those that engage their employees. In the Federal work place, “employee engagement” is usually the deciding factor in determining the “Best Place to Work.”
Understanding and recognizing this “collective activism” – a desire to leverage the resources of large entities, including government, to change the world rather than act alone - is essential for companies that hope to develop effective labor-relations strategies and have the Competitive Edge.
Here is a partial list of workshops being prepared for the Conference:
- Arbitration from all angles: Arbitrators and Advocates
- 21 Rules of Leadership
- Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire: Corpus Christi’s Journey to Collaboration
- Creating a Competitive Edge Through Collaborative Safety Practices
- Collective Bargaining In A Prison Environment
- Use of mediation to settle disputes in the airline industry
- Key Factors of a Successful Apprenticeship Program
- Affinity Model For Economic Bargaining
- Mandatory v. Permissible Subjects of Bargaining
