WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?
Our audience of business owners and employers will learn how to take control of their company, from time management to employee engagement, and from leadership to company culture. They will learn the comprehensive approach to the many issues that employers face today.
Running a business in these turbulent times can be quite challenging for any employer or a business owner. The issues of employee retention, a changing workforce that demands more flexibility via remote work, and a host of new laws, rules, and regulations force businesses to react to conflicting employee demands on a near-weekly basis.
How do you take control – from time management to employee engagement, and from leadership to company culture? You need a comprehensive approach, and that is where my next guest comes into the picture.
Join me on the next episode of Employment Law Today, where my guest, Sandra Kearney, and I will discuss how her company, Human Power Solutions, provides management consulting, employee engagement, and a host of advisory services for business owners!

0:55 – 15:05 – Sandra Kearney is a seasonal sales and management professional with small business owner experience in a variety of industries. They talk about Sandra’s early career in the industry and how she ended up discovering her passion and building her business as well as launching her firm due to her network as well as other things due to her success. She now lives in Westboro, Massachusetts, and has three children, two grandchildren, and five siblings. Sandra shares her story, starting by working for two of the premier hospitality companies, and she learned that all business revolves around people and people’s happiness. After leaving Marriott, she dabbled a bit in recruiting and got her training certification. Through this, she found out she enjoyed helping people reach their goals. After owning a gym for several years, she decided to sell it and spend more time with her kids and ended up going back to school to get her master’s in her 50s. Later on, they give some advice to the audience about owning a business, and some insight into challenges that employers are experiencing in the workplace today.
17:22 – 31:04 – The first segment is briefly reviewed, and they start talking about the stereotypes of the new generation and how they just want to be trusted and treated like normal people and that they provide a valuable contribution, and need to be provided training for those professional skills necessary for the real world that they aren’t provided in school and is missing from a lot of companies. Eric adds to that, talking about how younger millennials and gen z just have a different style of working, communicating, and expressing their needs, and because of this, employers are missing the boat to connect with their employees.
33:09 – 46:39 – They go over some challenges and problems with time management communication between intergenerational employees. They talk about how many companies need to look over workplace wellness/ mental health awareness. Sandra shares a traumatic experience she had during covid-19 two years ago and how important it is to bring it to light and give your employees tools to manage their stress and time. They talk about the stigma around mental health, how it shouldn’t be treated like dirty work, and how more companies should start talking about it in the workplace. It shouldn’t be expected and is unrealistic for people to have all these things impacting their life and just show up to work acting fine as if nothing happened.
48:39 – 58:27 – Sandra talks about her unique philosophy and trademarks for methods and approaches that Human Power Solutions takes to distinguish itself from other employment relations or HR marketing/ consulting firms, and shares a story about training on HR in interviewing.
About Employment Law Today
Helping Business With Employment Law Issues.
For many business owners, it can be overwhelming to keep up and comply with the federal and state labor and employment laws that govern how they run their business. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new laws and regulations regarding hiring, firing, and workplace practices and protocols — all of which can increase business owners’ anxieties about regaining traction or thriving again. On my weekly show, we will be discussing the most common employment law related questions and challenges that business owners have been facing in these uncertain times.
The show will have three main goals: (1) to inform businesses about employment law updates, (2) to inspire businesses by giving them the tools to move forward, and (3) to demonstrate how some business owners have overcome their employment law problems, walked through the challenges imposed by this pandemic, and have taken steps to regain traction during the reopening phases of this pandemic.
Our guests will include professionals who advise businesses from an H.R., legal, and financial perspective, along with thriving business owners who will share their experiences and insights into running a successful company while complying with labor and employment law mandates during COVID-19.
