“Impact of Opioids & Marijuana in the Workplace “is among topics to be addressed at upcoming Printing Industries Alliance Human Resources Conference. “Staying Ahead of the Curve- HR Challenges in Today’s Workplace” slated for May 3-4, 2018 in Verona, NY

There’s a dangerous road ahead. Are you sure you are prepared? In the last year, we have seen dramatic and unprecedented changes in our government and our society as a whole.

And, there’s little time to get up to speed on these issues.
