Save the date: AWB Institute Workforce Summit takes place March 21


From social media policies to bridging the "generational divide," there are plenty of issues facing every employer when it comes to workforce. After positive feedback from last year's first-ever Workforce Summit, AWB will again be bringing together innovative people, ideas and practices at a March 21 event in the Seattle area.
