Listen to "Conscious Consumerism and the Government’s Role in Regulating Companies’ Ethical Promises"
Conscious consumerism, the act of making purchases to effect positive change in the world, is common in today’s society. What happens when a company makes promises about its products or itself in order to attract conscious consumers but fails to live up to those promises? Does the law allow for this kind of exploitation of consumers’ expectations and values? Can deceived consumers obtain adequate relief on their own or should the government step in to help protect consumers from companies that make and then break their ethical promises? If the government did step in, what could that look like? Listen to a recording of the March 23, 2022 free non-CLE program where experts discuss the theoretical and practical dimensions of addressing this trending issue in consumer protection law.Listen - Now
How to Manage Remote Employees
Tips for Managers
COMMUNICATION–Establish regularly scheduled check-ins and team meetings to ensure effective communication and camaraderie. When everyone is working remotely, it's more important than ever to establish a sense of normalcy by ensuring on-going communication among staff. INVOLVEMENT–Spend a few minutes before each meeting or check-in catching up with your remote employees. Ask a few questions about how they're holding up. It's important to put a more effort into your interpersonal connections when everyone is working remotely. APPRECIATION–Be generous with your praise. When a face-to-face thank you is not possible, it's even more important to remember to praise employees. If they've done a good job, tell them that you are grateful for their work. It may seem obvious, but a lot of supervisors forget the importance of showing gratitude to their employees.
