LETTER FROM THE HIA-LI PRESIDENT & CEO A Letter From The President & CEO of The HIA-LI

Dear HIA-LI Member, Through these unprecedented times, innovation is key. That’s why we launched the HIA-LI Premium Marketplace, an online platform that enables businesses to showcase their services, products, and offerings to HIA-LI members as well as all Long Island businesses and consumers at large. Designed to help businesses enhance exposure for their company brand, HIA-LI Premium Marketplace members are able to instantly communicate or book meetings with other business professionals. Participants can also link with other members’ social media platforms, promote current or new products and services, and showcase company videos and photos. The HIA-LI Premium Marketplace offers local companies an excellent way to enrich their connections with their target audiences. This one-of-a-kind online business platform promotes communication and collaboration among companies across Long Island. The Marketplace concept arose from feedback from HIA-LI members seeking new ways to promote partnerships, networking, and business development within the organization and around the region. During these challenging economic times, HIA-LI rose to the task and is using technology to keep the business community engaged and productive. Participants are clustered into twelve business sectors:

CHRIS COLUCCIO | TECHWORKS CONSULTING, INC.

FEATURING CHRISTOPHER COLUCCIO, CEO & KEITH NEWELL, CFO AT TECHWORKS CONSULTING, INC. TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU/YOUR COMPANY STARTED. Techworks Consulting, Inc. was created in 2002. Prior to starting Techworks, I was an IT Admin who dreamed of creating a company that offers exceptional IT services and provides a unique product. I wanted to be able to deliver enterpriselevel technologies to smaller organizations at a price they could afford. Our original slogan was, “Small Business- Big Technology.” I have always felt that too many businesses suffered with poor technology and technology providers that were holding their businesses back. So many businesses thought that technology was just another expense to bear. I have always looked at technology as an investment and when implemented correctly, Techworks has proven that to be the case.

WHAT WAS A TURNING POINT FOR YOU/YOUR COMPANY? I would say the biggest turning point recently was the implementation of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (E.O.S.) from the book, Traction. The adoption of E.O.S. by everyone at Techworks has reinvigorated us. E.O.S. has made Techworks a much more focused, organized and determined company. With all the right people in the right seats and everyone understanding their accountability, we are able to hone in on our Core Values and Mission like never before.

WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY’S PHILOSOPHY?

March 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 6

We take a “Same Side of the Table” approach to working with our clients, understanding that our growth will come from their growth. This philosophy pushes us to always make decisions that are in the best interest of our clients even when doing so may not directly benefit Techworks. The true benefit to our work is seeing the growth capabilities and opportunities our clients obtain through partnering with us. Techworks sees technology as a means for organizations to reach their full potential. By taking a holistic approach, we help organizations grow and maintain a competitive edge. We believe that true success comes from the implementation of long-term solutions rather than short-term fixes. A relationship with Techworks is a commitment to finding the right technology, customizing needs, and placing focus on surpassing goals.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR COMPANIES PROFILE TODAY. From what honestly was a bumpy road a few years ago, Techworks has emerged stronger than ever. We are now a growing 25 Person Full-Service Technology provider that offers 24x7 services with headquarters in a wonderful facility in Ronkonkoma. Our Services have grown to include not only Managed Services, but also; Co-Managed

“We take a “Same Side of the Table” approach to working with our clients, understanding that our growth will come from their growth.” Chris Coluccio | Techworks Consulting, Inc. I.T., Infrastructure & Design, Project Management, Consulting/Compliance, Cloud Services and more. Techworks is a Microsoft Certified Office365 partner that has helped migrate and manage 10,000 accounts. We put a strong focus on education, competency, and training for our employees. We pride ourselves on being ahead of the curve and always implementing innovative methods to best service our customers. Techworks is a wonderful group of passionate people who truly do live our “Core Values” and share the “Vision” of becoming the Most Trusted and Respected Technology Firm on Long Island.

WHAT OPPORTUNITIES DO YOU SEE IN THE FUTURE? Techworks has put major emphasis on security and compliance. I think businesses are just

now starting to realize that they must take their I.T. security seriously. All businesses, big and small, are being impacted by the recent surge of I.T. security breaches. Partners and clients are demanding organizations that have access to their data or I.T. systems take a serious look at how they protect that data. Even more so, we are seeing more and more regulations from Government agencies requiring businesses to meet a certain level of I.T. security compliance.

GOLD MEMBERSHIP A Golden Opportunity By Joe Campolo, Esq. Managing Partner, Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP and HIA-LI Board Chairman jcampolo@cmmllp.com (631) 738-9100 www.cmmllp.com

In 2019, midway through my term as Chairman of the HIA-LI Board of Directors, I began to focus on getting the HIA-LI Gold Membership Program off the ground. Working closely with my friend and HIA-LI President Terri Alessi-Miceli, we envisioned the Gold Membership as not just another networking group, but an exclusive CEO forum: a comfortable environment for decisionmakers to discuss issues only fellow CEOs can understand, without being pressured for business. This forum would bring together business leaders with high-level speakers at impeccable events, offer direct interaction with elected officials and other influencers on policy issues, and foster collaboration among elite executives and business owners. In January 2020, we held a fantastic kickoff event at Jewel in Melville. Over delicious sushi and hors d’oeuvres, CEOs of some

keepingcurrent A New Role On The National Advocacy Stage By Paule T. Pachter, A.C.S.W., L.M.S.W.

Chief Executive Officer Long Island Cares, Inc. The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank 10 Davids Drive – Harry Chapin Way Hauppauge, New York 11788 Office: 631.582.3663 x 101 www.licares.org

Feeding America, the national hunger action organization, and the second most recognized charity in the United States represents 200 food banks across the country and they have played a significant role in elevating the conversation about food insecurity in the media and within the halls of Congress during the past eleven months. Countless corporations and celebrities have lent their influence and provided funding to support food banks either directly or through Feeding America totaling nearly $1 Billion. One of the most impactful roles that the national organization has is to advocate to Congress on behalf of national policies

that directly impact people and communities in need. The vehicle that Feeding America employs to accomplish this work is their Policy Engagement and Advocacy Committee (PEAC) comprised of 25 leaders within the food banking industry who meet bi-monthly to develop positions and action steps to advise members of Congress and the White House about the root causes of hunger and food insecurity and to achieve a national coordinated response through legislation that can lift people from the cycle of poverty in America. In January, Feeding America announced that, I have been appointed as one of the 25 members to serve on the Policy Engagement and Advocacy

Advocacy has always been a hallmark of Long Island Cares’ work and I’m honored that my colleagues at Feeding America recognized this with my appointment to the PEAC. Through our Government Affairs program we’ve remained true to Harry Chapin’s focus on social justice and advocacy on behalf of people and communities in need, and I’m looking forward to this opportunity to expand our dialogue with our members in Congress as well as, the Biden-Harris Administration.”

March 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 9

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a light on the issue of food insecurity in the United States that has increased more than 60% as nearly 50 million Americans struggle to put nutritious food on their tables to feed their families. Continued business closings, furloughs, and lack of financial resources has sent millions of Americans onto food lines including, 255,674 Long Islanders who have visited Long Island Cares-The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank and one of their six locations for the very first time due to the pandemic.

Committee (PEAC) for the next three-years and that I have the distinction of being the only food banker from New York State appointed to the committee. The PEAC Committee is tasked with setting legislative priorities and strategies, and to provide a national agenda to Congress and the Presidential administration. The committee will advocate on a number of policy issues to address hunger and food insecurity including the preservation of such programs as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Program), TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program), and WIC (Woman, Infants and Children). I also anticipate that we will address proposals to establish task forces and convene working groups to evaluate current programs and policies that respond to food insecurity as the Biden administration, USDA and Congress consider how extensive their actions need to be in addressing what is becoming a national crisis.

keepingcurrent Supply Chain Management – A Business Function Gets Respect And Attention By Rajib Sanyal Dean – Willumstad School of Business Adelphi University One South Avenue, Garden City, NY 11530 516-877-4600 RSanyal@Adelphi.edu Adelphi.edu/business

Probably no other business function has garnered as much attention (and respect) as supply chain management during this time of the coronavirus pandemic. From the very outset of this crisis, the critical role it plays in society and for companies became evident with supermarket shelves empty of toilet paper and cleaning supplies. Organizations found it difficult to cope with surging demand, both as buyers of raw materials and sellers of finished products. Soon thereafter, we had challenges deploying health care services in a timely and effective manner to the sick and afflicted as both hospitals and healthcare workers became overwhelmed. More recently, the reports have been about challenges in producing and distributing COVID-19 vaccines to healthcare clinics and actually inoculating the vulnerable segments of the population. At the same time, e-retailers such as Amazon.com and logistics companies like UPS have leveraged their supply chain networks to meet quickly, efficiently, and accurately the needs of a homebound population. Many businesses have pivoted to selling on-line and investing in new distribution systems. For example, we now have restaurant meals delivered to our own dining rooms by Doordash and UberEats. Without a smoothly functioning supply chain system, our modern economy is severely disrupted as we have found out. It is remarkable that we don’t think of the complexity

involved in organizing and managing the many tasks involved in obtaining the inputs needed to produce and assemble, to store, to transport and deliver the goods and services to the final consumers, until we find that we cannot buy our favorite products or access needed services.

“logisticians” to grow by four percent annually from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations. These calculations were made before the pandemic and as we know, the world has been upturned since. As the need to be virtual has grown, so has the demand for an expanding and resilient supply chain.

We are all familiar with Wal-Mart, the country’s largest retailer. Its founder, Sam Walton’s vow was to “help people save money so they could live better”. To do that, the company had to master the art and science of supply chain management. And it has been able to do that fabulously, by creating an unmatched procurement and distribution system to reduce costs and meet the expectations of customers. It has done so by continuously embracing new technologies, tracking inventory, and ensuring timely delivery to stores, constantly keeping costs down and thus prices too on its store shelves. It is also a very profitable company.

There has never been a better time to acquire the skills, knowledge and competency to become a supply chain professional. A graduate degree, usually a Master of Science in the subject, is a sure passport to a successful career in this fast growing field. Such programs are available through business schools at many universities. In choosing where to obtain the degree, an applicant should look at how quickly the program can be completed, whether it is accredited by AACSB (a marker of high quality), the availability of scholarships, if it is STEM (science, technology, engineering and technology) designated, and where past graduates have been placed.

Supply chain management has been around since the dawn of history. Obviously, it has changed and continues to evolve. When Alexander the Great was on his expedition of world conquest, he resourced and moved his military much more differently – he used horses, camels and elephants -- than how the U.S. army now positions and moves its troops, armor, and materiel around the world, quickly and effectively, to meet national security challenges.

The pandemic has wrought havoc and misery but unwittingly it has pole vaulted the vital role of a reliable and seamless supply chain management into everyone’s consciousness. As the economic system adjusts to new ways of doing and living, the importance of this business function will continue to grow. Rodney Dangerfield’s famous line, “I don’t get no respect” surely does not apply to supply chain management.

Supply chain analysts are in big demand in today’s economy. They are needed to help businesses, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations understand, develop, and implement actions to ensure the effective and efficient procurement and distribution of their products and services. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the employment of

keepingcurrent Can Employers Mandate That Employees Receive The COVID Vaccine? who are similar in their ability or inability to work. This means that a pregnant employee may be entitled to job modifications, including telework, changes to work schedules or assignments, and leave to the extent provided for other employees who are similar in their ability or inability to work. [2] On November 8, 2020, the New York State Bar Association passed a resolution urging the state to consider enforcing mandatory COVID vaccination, even if people object for “religious, philosophical or personal reasons.” The EEOC, however, did not issue any guidance on that resolution.

By Vincent Costa, Esq. , and Yale Pollack, Esq.

Since the first vaccines were administered in mid-December, employers and employees alike have questioned whether the workplace can require vaccination as a condition of employment. It will likely be months before the vaccine is available to most Americans, and thus it may be premature for private sector employers to propose a “vaccination for return-to-work” policy. However, on December 16, 2020, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued guidance regarding employers’ obligations for mandatory COVID vaccination programs. Essentially, the EEOC guidance provides that employers can require that employees get vaccinated as a condition of returning to work if their vaccination policies comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (“GINA”), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and other workplace laws.

An employer does not have to provide a particular reasonable accommodation if it poses an “undue hardship,” which means “significant difficulty or expense.” An accommodation that would not have posed an undue hardship prior to the pandemic may pose one now.[4] Prior to the pandemic, many accommodations did not pose a significant expense when considered against an

Additionally, EEOC guidance provided that the administration of a COVID vaccine by an employer is not a “medical examination” for purposes of the ADA and administering the vaccine or requiring employees to present proof of vaccination does not implicate GINA. If you have questions regarding mandatory COVID vaccines in the workplace, please contact us. Thank you to Daniel Axelrod for his research and writing assistance with this article. ________________________________________ [1] Title VII as amended by the Pregnancy Discrimination Act specifically requires that women affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions be treated the same as others

[4] For example, it may be significantly more difficult in this pandemic to conduct a needs assessment or acquire certain items, and delivery may be impacted, particularly for employees who may be teleworking. Or, it may be significantly more difficult to provide employees with temporary assignments, to remove marginal functions, or to readily hire temporary workers for specialized positions.

March 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 11

If an employee declines to get vaccinated based on a disability[1] or a “sincerely held religious belief,” the employer must offer a reasonable accommodation to the employee, such as working remotely.[2] If no accommodation is possible, [3] then an employer may prohibit the employee from entering the business if that employee presents a direct threat to the health and safety of persons in the workplace, but the employer may not necessarily terminate the employee. Employers should evaluate these four factors to determine whether a direct threat exists: (1) duration of the risk, (2) nature and severity of the potential harm, (3) likelihood that the potential harm will occur, and (4) imminence of the potential harm.

employer’s overall budget and resources. However, the sudden loss of some or all of an employer’s income stream because of the pandemic is a relevant consideration. Also relevant is the amount of discretionary funds available at this time and whether there is an expected date that current restrictions on an employer’s operations will be lifted (or new restrictions will be added or substituted).

[3] If a job may be performed only at the workplace, there may be reasonable accommodations that could offer protection to individuals whose disability puts them at greater risk from COVID and who therefore request such actions to eliminate possible exposure. Even with the constraints imposed by a pandemic, some accommodations may meet an employee’s needs on a temporary basis without causing undue hardship on the employer. If not already implemented for all employees, accommodations for those who request reduced contact with others due to a disability may include changes to the work environment such as designating one-way aisles; using plexiglass, tables, or other barriers to ensure minimum distances between customers and coworkers whenever feasible per CDC guidance or other accommodations that reduce chances of exposure.

The Future Ready Student program focuses on connecting women in STEM to the professional industry and supports their endeavors in looking to gain experience to complement their academic coursework. Through the program, students have been able to shadow professionals, intern or volunteer with various companies, and work part-time at large companies. Students also have the opportunity to attend weekly workshops that connect them with industry representatives. “Your instruction has helped me build myself up as a professional in so many ways and I will continue to work at improving myself and applying to as many opportunities as I can,” Carolina Ruiz, a current Future Ready participant and a junior biology major said. Diversity Professional Leadership Network (DPLN) The DPLN program helps underrepresented students increase their knowledge of careers and connect with employers for future opportunities. Students in the program receive weekly professional development training on topics including leadership development, effective communication, job/internship preparation, networking, and more. DPLN students also receive 1:1 career coaching and mentorship from industry professionals. The program started back in 2007 and has had over 460 students since its inception. “I feel like with the DPLN program, people know my face now, and it’s very meaningful that I can come in and I feel that atmosphere that I can get any help. My biggest takeaway was the long lasting connection with my peers and career center staff,” Arlene Alvarez, a former DPLN student and junior psychology and business management said.

Wonder Women in STEM Event The Women in STEM Leadership Program aims to help women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers fine-tune their negotiating, leadership and mentoring skills. In collaboration with Stony Brook University’s Women in Science and Engineering Honors Program, the Career Center hosted the “Wonder Women in Science and Engineering” event to inspire students to see their futures as women in STEM careers. The event has introduced undergraduate students to graduate women in STEM, faculty, and industry professionals, who will share their perspectives on success for women in various STEM disciplines. Women in Technology Series The Career Center partnered with the Department of Computer Science through a diversity mini grant the department submitted for a special programming series for women in technology during the 2020-2021 academic year. This series covered a variety of topics including personal branding, professional communications, salary negotiation, work life balance, and more. The Importance of Women’s Diversity Recruitment Initiatives Supporting women as they are starting their careers should be a key initiative that all companies and organizations are focused on not only in their recruitment efforts, but also in their overall workplace culture. There are a variety of important topics to be discussing in reference to creating an inclusive workplace for all employees including leadership development, career growth, work life balance, intersecting identities, and more. Women’s History Month is a great time for employers to start participating in networking events focused on recruiting female talent. Connections that are created at events during this time will inspire employers to invest their time in women’s diversity recruitment initiatives all year long.

keepingcurrent Benefits of Remote Internships programs into a virtual setting to accommodate for the ongoing pandemic. Healthcare companies that had to suspend on-site internships have also created certification programs, including Northwell Health. By Maya Brown Senior Communications Intern, Stony Brook University Career Center Contact: Crystal Diaz Crystal.M.Diaz@stonybrook.edu 631-632-6089

In 2020, we saw a rise in everything remote and virtual - from our daily tasks to jobs and internships. Simultaneously, we also saw a rise in applications for virtual internships because of the many benefits that are attached to the remote setting including flexibility, independence and affordability. Remote internships have helped close the accessibility gap for students and young adults who are applying to internships, as travel and lodging expenses are eliminated since the work can be done from their home. Due to the removal of traveling, there is also no need to beat the rush of possible traffic, leading to a much calmer start to a shift and an overall improvement on quality of life. Internships offered in a remote setting also can increase the size of the talent pool for employers, as employees can be from anywhere in the world, not just a particular town or state. Remote internships can offer valuable experience just as an on-site internship can. Many companies and organizations have transitioned their internship

“The program was amazing and I was exposed to so many professions that I didn’t know existed. I had the opportunity to listen to surgeons, nurses, doctors and technicians speak about their careers. Being really exposed to new professions opened my mind to new opportunities.” - Leslie Campo Catalan, a junior health science and biology double major at Stony Brook University The Career Center has also recently launched the Center for Remote Internships and Experiential Learning as an important resource for employers to turn to. Through the center, employers can learn more about recruiting and supervising remotely. Many students have also benefited from virtual internships and have been successful with reaching their goal, myself included. During the Fall 2020 semester, I had the opportunity to intern remotely with CNN Audio and I further developed my communication skills, networked with various media professionals and helped script and edit podcasts - all through working at home. It also gave me more flexibility in creating my schedule and feeling more in control. Even though the application process, onboarding process and training or orientation may be different, they can still be just as effective and produce beneficial experiences.

Benefits of Remote Internships 1) Independence of the way that you work as in intern with little to no micro-managing 2) Being able to add digital literacy as a new resume skill and talking point in job and internship interviews 3) Added accessibility and opportunity for various potential employees 4) More flexibility to your work schedule 5) Easier to network with various employees to make more connections Studies have also shown an increase in productivity. Teleworkers were 20 to 25% more productive than office-based employees, according to a study by Global Workplace Analytics. Additionally, a study by TINYpulse showed that remote workers felt an astonishing 91% more productive when they worked remotely. There are also many transferable skills that can be gained during a remote internship. Skills Learned during Remote Internships 1) Time management 2) Communication 3) Digital Literacy 4) Productivity Even though most remote internships began as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, many companies continue to implement them, as it has proven to be both successful and accessible. Some have even decided to let employees work remotely permanently due to the added benefits.
