    Productivity and Profits Up In Smoke

    We’ve all heard about drug use and abuse in the workplace. Most recently, media focus has been on legalization of marijuana in several states across the country. Did you know that two bills were introduced in the 2013 Wisconsin legislature to legalize medicinal marijuana in Wisconsin? (AB480 and SB363) Have you thought about how your business might change if such legislation were passed here? Be sure you have all the information you need as potential policy comes to the forefront in Wisconsin. Join us as Jane Birkholz speaks to the impact on business productivity and profits when the current and future workforce has legal license to use marijuana. Jane will provide facts, trends, and effects of marijuana; share what she learned at the 2013 National Marijuana Policy and Strategy Conference; and provide tips on a successful drug-free workplace. There will be opportunity for interaction and questions.

    Jane Birkholz is a training director at Lakeshore Technical College. As part of the Workforce Solutions division at the college, Jane utilizes her experiences and expertise to assist businesses with their needs for productivity, profitability, quality, and skills development of the workforce. Jane graduated from Silver Lake College summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Resource Management. She is certified in Non-Profit Administration from Marquette University, as well as a certified Strengths advocate and coach by The Gallup Organization.
