12:00 PM - 1:15 PM The Bermuda Triangle - Manager Training on FMLA/ADA/Employee Relations

Join us for this manager-only training opportunity: The Bermuda Triangle – the complex intersection of Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Employee Relations.

Because the interplay of FMLA, ADA, and Employee Relations can be challenging to navigate, many HR professionals refer to this interplay as the Bermuda Triangle of Employment Law. We have developed a training for managers which will help you navigate these unclear and often unchartered waters.

The session includes:

  • The basics of these employment laws, your employee’s rights, and doing what’s best for Babson;
  • What you need to know to navigate these areas of employment law;
  • Tips for supporting you as the manager and your team members during such occurrences.

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wellness - “Come as You Are” Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a gentle exercise for body and mind.  With its roots in Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi uses slow and gentle movements to build your balance, strength, flexibility and focus.  No matter your age or physical condition, you can practice Tai Chi.  Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  Most of all, Tai Chi is relaxing and fun.  So come as you are, in comfortable clothes, with flat-soled shoes.  You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi as well as exercises and a short form you will be able to practice on your own.

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wellness - Zumba
The Zumba® program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will blow you away. Originally created by Alberto “Beto” Perez in Columbia, Zumba® is a Latin inspired dance fitness class that combines interval training sessions with fast and slow rhythms to sculpt and tone your body while burning fat.  Our goal is simple: We want you to want to work out, to love working out, and to get hooked.  Zumba® fanatics achieve long-term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in every calorie-burning, body-energizing class.  This class is perfect for all fitness levels and no dance experience is necessary!

Zumba®Toning - For those who want to party, but put extra emphasis on toning and sculpting to define those muscles!  It works by utilizing the challenge of adding resistance by using Zumba®Toning Sticks or light weights, which helps you focus on specific muscle groups, so you (and your muscles) stay engaged!  By using lightweight maraca-like toning sticks or light weights, Zumba Toning enhances sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning target zones, including arms, core and lower body.

So, join Dawn George, certified dance and Zumba instructor, as she leads you through the latest in fitness fun.  What are you waiting for?  Ditch the workout....join the party!
