Changes in technology and workforce demographics are inevitable factors in shaping the workplace, but each can also introduce new workplace risks for employers.

Various business sectors might face new exposures in need of risk management strategies. These can include risks posed by: an increasingly mobile workforce, where more employees work remotely; company social media policies or employee social media use; and by workforce shifts caused by demographic shifts, including an aging workforce and the need to replace many retiring baby boomer employees with a new generation of workers.

During this free webinar, sponsored by Zurich, an expert panel will explore these issues, how to spot potential trouble spots and recommendations for what companies must do to address these and other emerging workplace risks. Panelists include: Seymour Adler is a partner of Aon Hewitt, based in New York; Marc Mandelman is a Senior Counsel at Proskauer Rose L.L.P. in New York; and Judith R. Sands is Case Manager at Duke Raleigh Hospital in Raleigh, N.C. , and a risk management consultant. Business Insurance Associate Editor Mike Tsikoudakis will moderate the panel and take questions from the live online audience.
