Annual Employment Law Update and
HR Survival Skills Test

The day to day existence of human resources professionals can, at times, feel as a survival game where contestants, without much, if any prior notice, must use their wits and whatever tools they have at their fingertips to respond to any number of pressing workplace issues. The Discovery Channel’s very popular TV show, Naked and Afraid, describes the exposure and discomfort, as well as the sense of accomplishment, HR professionals may experience in this ever-changing and increasingly hostile environment. In keeping with our theme in recent years, we decided to frame our annual employment law update as an interactive game show. 

We call this show “HR: Naked and Afraid”.  Just as with the popular TV show, after sitting through a riveting legal update (which will provide some clues that will later be useful in the game), HR contestants, will be asked to answer increasingly complex employment law questions.  Contestants will be given a hypothetical situation, a list of possible answers and they will be asked to pick the correct answers.  The clock will be ticking, you will be exposed (standing up, but fully clothed), there will be hidden dangers, and your answers must be 100% correct to survive the “HR: Naked and Afraid” experience.  Nerves, knowledge and skills will be tested. (If you are concerned by the theme wear an extra sweater or two.)

Prizes will be awarded to all who participate. 
The program promises to be both fun and informative.

PLEASE REMEMBER: In keeping with this theme as well as the Holiday season and to support area homeless or those in cold weather shelters we ask you to please bring new or gently used gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, sweaters and coats to be donated.
