Join us for our August lunch meeting and Workshop! 

HR plays a critical role in increasing an organization's bottom line, while simultaneously impacting its vision, mission, and goals. This program will positively impact those key areas by developing and implementing strategies for recruiting, retaining, and managing a multi-generational workforce that will increase individual and organizational value, with a focus on aligning those responsibilities across all business units. Learners will understand how to leverage those strategies to positively effect different business functions across their organization and enter into critical partnerships with other departments, while focusing on the target of achieving larger organizational goals. This program will help to improve participant's skills in strategic planning that are crucial to capacity building, increasing critical thinking around recruiting, retention, and managing employees, as well as developing overall leadership effectiveness.

Participant Learning Objectives…

Objective 1 – More effectively analyze an organization's recruiting, retention, and management strategies through the objective use of surveys/questions.

This program is approved for business credit through HRCI/SHRM.
