Surfing the silver tsunami - Workers Compensation, ADA, FMLA, Mental Illness and Other Workplace Regulations! Will there be any protection?


This training will focus on the skills necessary to navigate the many workplace regulations that can impact Employers by arming them with the fundamentals of Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), American with Disabilities Act (ADA), American with Disabilities Act Addendum (ADAA), Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). Then and only then can Employers feel confident about juggling all these regulations without making decisions that can impact negatively on employees and the organization. When you add strict guidelines of Workers Compensation claims and the financial impact of high volume claims versus safety in the workplace, we need to provide Employers with as much awareness, tools and strategies to reduce risk and increase confidence. This training provides the necessary level of knowledge of compliance initiatives and resources that can assist HR professionals, supervisors and Employers in ensuring effective workplace compliance.

Excel - Importing and Manipulating Big Data with Power Query


Do you work with "Big Data"? Do you import and manipulate large datasets in Excel? If so you’ll already be familiar with the limitations of Excel. Power Query, (known as Get and Transform in Excel 2016) is designed to get you past these limitations, allowing you to import and work with 1-million-plus-row datasets from virtually any source.

Power Query / Get and Transform can save you a ton of time when working with imported data. In many cases when you get data from external sources, it needs work on it before it can be used.  Although this can be done using Excel functionality, Power Query / Get and Transform is a lot faster, can handle much more data, and is repeatable with a couple of clicks.
