Course Objectives: Costs of employee turnover, understanding of what employees want, investing in employees = investing in production, building a company culture, employee retention, hiring – training – and performance management.

About the Presenter

Current Position:

Risk Consultant – Risk Management Resource Center. I began my Federated career in May 2018 as a communications specialist, contributing to spreading our risk management message to clients and association members. In November 2020, I began working hands-on with clients and association members.     



I am a Minnesota native, rarely going too far from Federated’s home city of Owatonna. I graduated from a southern Minnesota college with a degree in journalism, and spent about 10 years in local news before joining Federated.


Something few people know about you:

My first professional job included preparing obituaries for print. I have experience working with funeral homes, helping in my small way to provide some level of comfort to the families they work with. 


Personally From Tony:

I look forward to assisting association members with their risk management needs. My team and I in the Risk Management Resource Center specialize in helping clients develop a risk management culture by acquainting them with the materials and resources Federated offers.
