Training Course Syllabus:

The HR Conference  (Human Resources)

When the going gets tough … you've got to be even tougher to survive and thrive!

As an HR professional, you are the liaison between your organization's employees and its corporate policies, procedures and cultural norms. You are responsible for sorting through performance issues, handling employee complaints, dealing with the countless legal aspects your job requires and protecting your employees and your organization from legal action, fines and penalties.

As if that weren't enough, you're also responsible for setting the corporate tone of your organization, promoting its mission, vision and values, being a positive agent for change and identifying and hiring the talent to drive your organization into the future. There are a lot of responsibilities resting on your shoulders, and a great deal of expectations riding on your performance.

One day, two tracks, eight sessions — it all adds up to unlimited potential for success!

This conference was created to give you a dependable toolbox packed to the brim with survival skills, workplace strategies, fresh insights and more — all designed to give you a powerful edge when it comes to your HR responsibilities. Everything you will learn during this comprehensive day of training is up-to-the-minute, hot-off-the-press material — from new and pending legislation to hot topics like social media legalities, employee performance issues, future trends and more. Our two-track format gives you the option of choosing between multiple training sessions, providing an individualized learning experience that's unique to you.

You are welcome to mix and match sessions and move back and forth between the two tracks. Choose the topics that interest you most, and create a customized training program tailored to suit your needs, as well as those of your organization.

Track One addresses the very latest legislative changes, court rulings and other important legal issues. From new amendments and legislation affecting OSHA, FLSA, ADA, FLMA and HIPAA to the latest legal trends in supervision, discrimination and diversity, this track covers the emerging legal developments that affect HR practices and procedures. Track Two focuses on essential skills to make handling every aspect of your job easier. In these sessions, you will learn to communicate more effectively through a variety of proven, field-tested techniques, take a look at recruiting and hiring through social media and gain skills to deal with negative attitudes, lagging performance, the office political machine, employee burnout and much, much more!
