Aurora Fire Rescue (AFR) recently conducted a search for a firm to provide workplace conduct training for all members of the organization related to diversity, discrimination, inclusiveness and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) implications. The training needed to address appropriate behavior in the workplace accounting for social, cultural and environmental complexities associated with the fire service. AFR selected Employment Compliance Solutions LLC, which is owned and operated by Julie Pate.
Ms. Pate delivered exceptional training to all AFR members providing awareness, education, and ethical implications/perspectives related to appropriate workplace behavior. The results of the department wide initiative yielded positive outcomes for our organization. Ms. Pate’s approach and engaging delivery method provided members of the organization an opportunity to ask tough questions in a welcoming environment. Julie is knowledgeable in the fire industry and applied that conceptual framework facilitating highly effective and appropriate deliverables. I would highly recommend the workplace conduct training described to any public or private entity, which desires to clearly communicate and foster a positive working environment for all employees.

Julie came to our fire department and taught workplace harassment and similar issues to our firefighters. Her expertise and respectful manner created an excellent learning environment for a difficult issue.
Tom DeMint, Fire Chief, Poudre Fire Authority
Julie worked with our organization for our annual HR Legal Updates Training and did an amazing job of engaging Managers and Leaders of all levels from Team Leads to our Officers. She spent time with our HR Team on the front end to gain an understanding of our industry and some of the unique challenges our Managers face. Her engaging style and case study vignettes challenged participants to apply their knowledge to current, industry - relevant situations and we can already see application of the learning across the organization!
