To educate businesses on the current trends and issues, Cultural Chemistry will host a Breakfast & Brain Power event, HR for Non-HR Professionals, on July 15, from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. The discussion will include the ten most common violations found by the New Hampshire Department of Labor, how to manage the new generation in the workplace, and how to attract workers that want to work with great benefits.
