What is the Lancaster Chamber's Roundtable Program?

Roundtables foster meaningful peer-to-peer connection and discussion in an invigorating and confidential environment. Roundtables are designed to encourage participants to exchange insight, offer feedback, and express challenges they're facing in their position or organization while cultivating a valuable network. Roundtable sessions include the option to host a presenter or educational component at meetings to introduce best practices or address relevant issues. Roundtable content discussions are guided by a select group of Co-Chairs in partnership with a Lancaster Chamber staff member. 

Here's what to expect!

Is your company navigating a hybrid workplace model? Are you fully remote? 

No matter where your company lands on the hybrid and remote work continuum, there are numerous logistics to consider (as well as frequently evaluate) prior to and after implementing a new workplace structure.  

Join us on October 5 for the next HR Roundtable where we will discuss legal considerations surrounding hybrid and remote work. Learn more about the often overlooked legal ramifications surrounding hybrid and remote work decisions. Hear from legal professionals who will present some common hybrid and remote work scenarios, and provide you with the opportunity to walk through your decision-making as you consider implementing and refining your policies (don’t worry, we promise they’ll give you the right answer!). 

Throughout the program, there will be opportunities to raise your own remote and hybrid work questions, share strategies with your peers, and learn about situations other companies have encountered, so come prepared to interact with our legal experts and fellow attendees!
