Happy New Year!
As we step into a brand-new year, we also step into new opportunities, new possibilities to make improvements, to forge new ventures and avenues of the way we do business and communicate with one another. I shared in last month’s LightPost Newsletter my platform: “Engaged, Empowered and Aligned: Strategies for a New Workplace” As we move into our year of Chapter Meetings and special events, I want us to remember those words and embrace the meaning of being engaged with compassion, empowering yourself and others to be involved in your self-care and wellness, and align with strategies of change and flexibility in the workplace.
We have some fantastic meetings and events planned for the year and a new board that has been charged with providing their best for you, our dear members. A couple of scheduled meetings coming up at the beginning of the year is the Financial Wellness event held at the new Top Golf facility, led by Co-Directors, Chad Barnes, and Leah Jaynes in January. This is sure to be a huge favorite of the year and provide some incredible financial information and resources. In February, the re-energized Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee has an exciting and sure to be remembered event with some very notable speakers presenting on very timely and relevant topics of the day that you need to hear to consider including in your Human Resources initiatives for DE&I.
With that being said, be sure to watch for more information to come and sign up to attend on the LSHRM website. Along with other planned meetings, you won’t want to miss these events! Now, because I just did not have enough on my plate, I am also the Co-President of the Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville, and we plan to partner as two forces in the city on some events which will bring both groups together to collaborate and support one another on mutual interests. We are excited to welcome in the new year, welcome your input and involvement to make it one to remember!
Warmest Regards “EE&A”,
