Fall 2021 Webinar Series

With urgency and speed, credit unions adapted to the changing needs of members and employees as the pandemic swept through the nation. Now, more than 18 months in, HR professionals are still meeting unprecedented challenges in the workplace, as the way we do business will never be the same again. This series will focus on critical issues facing credit unions now including finding and keeping talent in a shrinking labor force, new laws and regulations, and managing remote work and staff.

November 2  I  10:00 – 11:30 am
Recruitment and Retention Strategies: Post Pandemic and Beyond with Janie Warner
It’s a new world these days – not just for credit unions but for every employer.  The pandemic of 2020 lingers into 2021 and the landscape of talent willing to work a traditional job has shrunk to record low numbers.  What is an employer to do?  This session will discuss the current climate and labor pool, using statistical and socioeconomic data as well as outline a number of strategies credit unions can implement now to make a difference well into the future.

November 9  I  10:00 – 11:30 am
Legal Issues Update with Dan Rose and Michael Buescher, Drummond Woodsum
The Maine Legislature has been very active again this year, adopting multiple new laws that impact how our workplaces operate. This includes changes to the Maine Human Rights Act, Maine’s Family Medical Leave Act, an employer’s ability to recover overpayments to employees, and inquiring about an applicant’s criminal history. Additionally, employers continue to work to keep up-to-date with federal and state guidance (that is sometimes changing daily) related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including new OSHA rules about mandatory vaccinations. We will be discussing the updated guidance and how it may impact our employees and our work rules.

November 16  I  9:00 – 11:30 am
Managing Remotely: HR Dos & Don’ts in a Virtual World with Diane Reed, CU Doctor

We will discuss the recent vaccine mandate, the latest trends in retaining workers, your CU’s remote work policy, other work policies affected by virtual work, training managers to manage hybrid teams, and the bevy of best practices in “flexible” benefits.
