Norcross, GA (Vocus) January 21, 2010
Employee communications firm, Projections, Inc. today announced a February, 2010 expert series of online educational seminars, designed for labor relations and human resources professionals. The series is entirely free of charge, and includes a wide variety of topics, such as the use and legal implications of social media in the workplace, the cost of unionization, and industry-specific topics for transportation and health care companies.
"These seminars will be presented by industry and subject-matter experts, so our hope is that they will deliver value to our participants," explains Projections owner and CEO, Walter Orechwa. "If we've learned one thing over our 30-plus years in business, it’s that human resource and labor relations professionals are very protective of their time. Knowing that, we intend to deliver 12 robust sessions that will be well worth the time investment."
Projections has removed another barrier to gaining knowledge in today's economy – cost. By presenting this expert series as an online, complimentary service, Projections is helping professionals address the challenges they are facing with regard to keeping up with changes in the business landscape.
With a diverse range of titles, these seminars will offer expert insight on human resources and labor relations topics, 3 days a week throughout the month of February. This vital content will provide understanding in areas where even basic knowledge can be difficult and costly to come by.
"A Month of Lunches" expert series seminar titles currently include:
"An update on Executive Order 13496:
Are you prepared to post a Federal notice that encourages your employees to unionize?"

"Companies today are challenged by a host of difficult and potentially costly threats," summarized Orechwa. “Good, honest, union-free employers are being placed in a precarious position, and our goal is that our "Month of Lunches” series will provide the foundation that will help them prepare for many of those challenges."
