Wearing Multiple Hats:  The Evolving Role of the HR Professional

Sessions meet on January 24 and February 7, 14 and 21 from 8:00am to 5:00pm


Individuals from small to mid-sized companies whose job description includes a formal HR title, or those who perform the functions of attracting, hiring, onboarding, engaging and developing the workforce.  Regardless of their level of experience, if participants work on the “people” side of the business, they can benefit from this series of learning events.

You’ve built your career around the core belief that your organization’s people are its ultimate differentiator.  As business becomes more competitive and the marketplace more demanding, you are seeing that good people are the key to success.  The challenge of finding and then keeping them keeps you up at night.

This four day event will require you to think through your company’s approach to its “people strategies.”  What processes do you use and how close are they to best practices?  How does a potential candidate, faced with multiple options, compare your company with others?  And, if they decide they want to apply for one of your positions, how easy is the process?  What happens during those first crucial months of employment?  How likely are they to stay at your organization?

These and other questions will be addressed in this four-day learning event.
