WorkSTEPS Workplace Law and Legislative Update 2018

May 17 - May 18

WorkSTEPS is delighted to announce our 2018 Workplace Law and Legislative Update focusing on absence and disability management, work health and work safety.  This program will appeal to Human Resources Professionals, Risk and Safety Managers and Directors, In-house Counsel and C-Suite stakeholders.  Thanks to TX SHRM, our program will award both Professional Development Credits for SHRM and continuing education credits for HRCI.  We will also seek accreditation credits for Texas CLE.

We will have nationally recognized speakers and faculty speaking on the latest employment law issues, trends and recent case law affecting employers today with a focus on the past year under the “new” administration.  We will also have a very special guest, Clint Emerson – Retired Navy SEAL and New York Times Bestselling Author providing our keynote session.  Clint spent twenty years conducting special ops all over the world while attached to SEAL Teams (including the elite SEAL Team SIX) and the National Security Agency (NSA).  He is the Founding Partner of Escape the Wolf, a company that provides preemptive, holistic safety solutions for employees, students and government personnel.  Escape the Wolf specializes in crisis management, workplace violence, cyber threat and pandemic preparation/response planning as well as educational and leadership sessions for small to large corporations.  Clint has been featured in publications such as Texas Monthly and the Wall Street Journal and is often sought out for public speaking engagements on topics including corporate security, crisis management, personal security, travel security, 100 Deadly Skills, leadership and teamwork.

It’s not just an educational conference…we’re here to have fun!

Before we get down to the business of learning, we will open our event on Thursday afternoon, 5/17 at 4:00pm with a welcome reception and social event at Topgolf in Austin.  We will have cocktails, food and several golf bays available exclusive to our group.  Our speakers will be joining us as well.

We will wrap up our social event about 7:00pm and you’re welcome to enjoy The Domain – just a short walk from Topgolf and Austin’s newest shopping and dining mecca (also where the preferred hotel is located).  But, don’t over do it…we will have our program kick off first thing Friday morning, 5/18 at 8:20am.

If you’re not familiar with Topgolf, you’re in for a treat!  Whether you’re a social golfer, not a golfer, a master of putt putt or the next Jordan Spieth, Topgolf is for everyone of any (or no) skill level.  Topgolf has created a new kind of golf experience that combines competition with entertainment.  Players hit micro chipped golf balls at targets on an outfield.  Just picture a larger-than-life-sized outdoor dartboard – but for golf.  We will also have a golf pro strolling the tee line offering tips and pointers for our guests.  Topgolf has evolved to become a best-in-class entertainment venue and is flat-out fun at any age, skill level or time of the year.

Please join us for this social event to enjoy time with your friends and colleagues and to meet new ones.  It will be completely about having a fun and relaxing time — we’ll save the business portion for the next day!
