Name: Improving Our Community & Our Workforce Seminar with Figment Group
Date: January 24, 2018
Time: 7:45 AM - 9:15 AM CST
Event Description:
Join us for a conversation on how together we can take a proactive role in improving both our community and workforce! Your Chamber knows that today, our local employers have a very complicated landscape, which poses challenges for HR and safety professionals as well as owners to rethink, ‘Do I have the right things in place for my company?

At this event, we will explore strategies beyond drug screening, which will in the end help your business to improve its bottom line and attract desirable candidates. Mary Wellnitz of Figment Group, Inc. will help to guide this discussion on December 12 at Le Cabernet at the Blue Heron, 1110 Lakeside Street in La Porte. Registration for the event will begin at 7:45 a.m. and the program & breakfast will begin at 8:00 a.m.

Many questions will be answered during this discussion. For instance, drug screening and testing standards in the workplace have changed-how does this affect our community as a whole? We will also look at defensible policies, an employer ‘cost calculator’ to help put a price on substance abuse and ways that businesses could reduce their workers’ compensation by 5%.


As the struggles of addiction continue to affect our workers’ safety and health, the Chamber is urging employers to take action.  With your help, we can create strategies and partnerships with our local companies to build a stronger, better prepared LaPorte workforce.
