    9:30am    Break-Out Session 1: " Bullying in the Workplace" with Canyon County Prosecuting Attorney Bryan Taylor, JD, PhD
    Fifty-one percent (51%) of organizations experience workplace bullying.  One in 5 workers are bullied each week.  Twenty-two percent (22%) resign rather than reporting.  Eighty-one percent (81%) of employers are doing nothing to address bullying.  Not only can workplace bullying create a toxic work environment it could lead to employees being prosecuted.  In this presentation, we will discuss what is workplace bullying, what are its effects, how to deal with it, and what does the law say.  

    10:30am    Breakout Session 2:    "Connecting Multiple Generations in the Workplace" Facilitated by Dave Covington, Director of the Center for Professional Development at NNU.

    The morning breakout sessions are offered at no charge and is a benefit for our Nampa Chamber members. Registration required to confirm space needed.
