National Foundation for Women Legislators Holds Webcast on Workplace Culture

SHRM’s Head of Government Affairs, Emily M. Dickens, recently participated in a webcast with the National Foundation of Women Legislators. The webinar focused on the importance of workplace culture as we navigate returning to the office, and how SHRM, employers across the globe and policymakers can work together to create impactful change as businesses adjust to the “next” normal.

Dickens addressed elected women legislators across state and local levels of government around the country. During the webcast, she discussed how employers, workers and lawmakers can address urgent issues facing the workforce, including workplace culture, mental health, and investing in upskilling and reskilling programs for workers. It is critical that these groups work together as they navigate workplaces affected by COVID-19.
