In one day, we’ll provide you with the knowledge, tools, and insights to move the needle on Employment Law ROI. The Employment Law forum is a best practice sharing deep dive session to learn the latest developments in employment law that are impacting manufacturers. Sessions will include highlights of the latest employment law developments and peer-to-peer case study examples.
Who should attend?
Manufacturing firm human resources executives and law department attorneys with responsibility for employment law.
What makes MAPI forums different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our forums never have more than one sponsor, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our forums deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action
