With the fundamental shift in employee-employer relationships started by the COVID-19 pandemic, Albany Law School’s Online Graduate Programs co-presents a webinar geared for Human Resource professionals, “Culture Shift: HR Strategies to Retain and Motivate Employees in the ‘Quiet Quitting’ Era.”

The online webinar is presented in partnership with the nonprofit, accredited Western Governors University (WGU). The session is scheduled for Nov. 15 from 1-2 p.m. It is free of charge, but registration is required. 


Since about 20 million people quit their jobs in the first 5 months of 2022 alone, HR professionals are challenged to retain and boost morale of qualified — and content — employees.  

“It’s time for employers to self-reflect on what drove workers to leave, disengage, or sign an offer with another company. This conversation will delve into building a culture that keeps today’s employees motivated, appreciated, and on the job — a core function of HR as we navigate the current state of the workforce,” said Tom Rosenberger Assistant Dean and Director for Online Programs.

The law school offers master’s degree, advanced certificate, and LL.M. degree tracks in five programs including Human Resources: Law Leadership, and Policy.

Miriam Dushane – Managing Partner at Alaant Workforce Solutions – will moderate the discussion of panelists:

  • Dave Druzynski – Sr. Vice President, People and Culture at Bestpass 
  • Isaac Mamaysky – Adjunct Professor at Albany Law School and Partner at Potomac Law Group PLLC 
  • Robye Margolius – Manager of Career Counseling and Co-Chair of the Well-Being Committee at Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP; Chair of Career Advancement and Management Committee for New York City Bar Association 
  • Sean Wall-Carty – Instructor at WGU College of Business

They will discuss:

  • What employees value in today’s climate 
  • Instilling trust and effective wellbeing practices 
  • Strategies and challenges to building culture in remote, in-person, and hybrid environments 
  • The importance of internal communication  
  • Boosting morale through appropriate humor 
  • Legal risks navigating retention
