At noon Eastern time on Thursday, Dec. 5, NACD will host a webinar on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which was signed into law almost two years ago on Jan. 4, 2011.

The FSMA imposes new requirements on entities that manufacture, process, pack, transport, distribute, receive or hold food and food products. These requirements are applicable to distributors whose chemicals could be used in food or food packaging. Ensure that you will be ready when the FDA inspector knocks on your door by joining us for this important webinar.

The most disturbing number pointed out in the study was the engagement levels of leadership. The common perception is that leaders are typically more engaged than frontline employees.
