April 2021
Our virtual meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 8, 2021, 10:00 am

April showers bring May flowers!! The warmer weather is a nice change from the winter months, for sure. Hopefully most of us have been able to get the vaccine and able to get out more and engage with friends and family. The vaccine roll out has gone rather quickly and local clinics are seeing success getting "shots in arms". We'll hear more about the pandemic and vaccinations from Dr. Kirk Tucker, Chief Clinical Officer at Adena Medical Center, when he joins us for our Safety Council meeting. He will be taking questions, so come prepared.
Don't forget to join the Coalition to Stop the Spread and check out the Coalitions website for important resources to share with your workers.
Our key presentation in April will take us on a socialogical journey as we about the different generations that make up our workforce. We'll hear from Nicholas Coia from BWC as he demonstrates ways to understand and utilize the work ethic, skills, and mindset of millennials. Millennials now represent the largest generation in the US workforce.
Hope to see everyone at the meeting!
