Tuesday, April 11, 2023, 9:00AM - 10:00AM

Marshall University’s Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) and Marshall Health are teaming up for a series of free virtual workshops:

The free hourlong sessions, which will run 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. each day, are:

  • Tuesday, Jan. 10 – CORE: Matching People to Jobs
  • Tuesday, Feb. 14 – Safe and Healthy Workplace: A Well Culture Advances Recruitment and Retention
  • Tuesday, March 14 – Set the Temperature: Establish Policies, Procedures and a Culture That Makes a Difference
  • Tuesday, April 11 – Employer Supports and Incentives: Responding to Workforce Needs

Facilitated by the employment experts from Marshall Health’s CORE (Creating Opportunities for Recovery Employment) initiative and RCBI, the series will provide human resource professionals and front-line managerial staff with practical strategies and approaches for building and retaining a ready workforce. Topics will include employer evaluation, identifying addiction as a disease, components of a drug-free workplace policy, addressing stigma in the workplace, operations to establish a safe and healthy workplace, and connections to resources to assist employers with issues related to substance use disorder.

Employers may register for any or all of the workshops at www.rcbi.org/employersessions. Registrants will receive information about how to join the online events after they register.

RCBI and CORE have a successful history of working together through initiatives such as Recovery Works to prepare individuals recovering from substance use disorder to enter or re-enter the workforce and find and maintain steady employment.
