Tawny Alvarez
Partner
Verrill Dana

Tawny is a partner in Verrill Dana’s labor and employment practice group.  She believes that a company’s culture defines its business and prides herself on assisting clients comply with the law, while simultaneously creating an amazing place to work.

Tawny centers her practice on the understanding that the employment landscape is ever-changing and that many organizations do not have the time or resources to keep abreast of all of these changes—from medical (and recreational) marijuana’s effect on drug testing, to the effect of social networking in the workplace and mobile devices’ effect on wage and hour issues. In this evolving landscape she recognizes that for companies to remain profitable and successful they must be proactive, as opposed to reactive, to these employment issues.

Retaining Top Talent –

On this episode of HR Power Hour we talk to Caitlin Miller, Director of Human Resources for Big Tree Hospitality.

We will talk with Caitlin about what the James Beard Award-Winning restaurants are doing to attract and maintain top talent in an industry that in the past has been considered to attract only individuals who are looking for a job and not a career.

Focusing on job benefits that are helping Big Tree to retain talented individuals within the industry while simultaneously creating a culture that believes strongly in giving back to the community, Caitlin will share the biggest issues that she is seeing in the hospitality industry related to talent acquisition and maintenance.
