CCSHRM - Thank you for welcoming us to your event!

Central California Society for Human Resource Management (CCSHRM)On July 18, Holly Carter spoke at the Central California Society for Human Resources Management (CCSHRM)luncheon. Her presentation, “Are You Prepared for a Workplace Crisis?” was designed to provide employers – and HR professionals – with real life workplace crisis scenarios. Holly shared examples of crisis scenarios for the well-prepared business versus the unprepared business, and stressed the importance of crisis communication plans. Download a PDF version of her presentation here.

We have posted a few extra example videos, as well as a free download of our Crisis Communications booklet below. Thank you to everyone who attended – we hope you came away with the drive to prepare, because it’s not if a crisis will hit, but when.

Some businesses are their own worst-case scenarios

Active Shooter/Threat Training


We are holding a free workshop in September for business leaders to teach them what to do in case of a crisis, including an active threat/shooter situation. These leaders will be able to take this information back to their workplace and we can continue the work of making ourselves and our community more able to defend against violence.

This training will include Active Shooter/Threat Training which allows the attendees to experience a crisis simulation. Space is limited to the first 100 business owners and leaders who respond. Date and time TBD.

We are able to offer this training free of charge due to the participation and support of the trained experts who are our community partners.
