Thanks to everyone who joined us for the first virtual Prosper Jefferson! Missed out? The webinar can be streamed HERE.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many regional businesses have chosen to maintain their operations remotely. This means a whole lot of our local employees have been working from home for weeks to ensure the safety and health of our entire community. As we settle into this new normal, we know business owners and their employees have questions. That’s why JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce teamed up to bring you a Prosper Jefferson webinar all about staying productive and healthy while you’re working from your home office…or dining room table.
Join Amy Bakay (HR NOLA) and Dr. Brittany Quirk (Magnolia Physical Therapy) as they discuss tips, tools and best practices for maintaining efficiency and wellness during these unprecedented times. The webinar is scheduled for this Friday, April 24th, at 10:00 AM. The event is free and open to the public.
