Join DJB’s Human Resources Advisors for a 60-minute interactive fireside chat, exploring the trend of “quiet quitting” and what employers can do to re-engage employees as we head towards a new year.

Participants are encouraged to grab a warm drink, BYOQ (Bring Your Own Questions), and settle in by our cozy virtual fireside for an HR update, followed by an open discussion with our panel of seasoned HR advisors.

Advance questions are encouraged and can be submitted through the registration page or by emailing
