    Please join us for a 2 part series learning about Indirect Compensation as a tool for recruitment and retention.

    Over a two part series (3 hrs. total), this course lays the foundation for understanding of Indirect Compensation. We will cover all compensation that is not paid directly to an employee in the form of a salary (e.g. Health, Life, Dental, Vacation). This will further educate HR/Business professionals and help them coach their employees to understand the value of Indirect Compensation.

    Participants can expect a presentation that contains graphs and examples utilizing relevant workforce information, polls, and interactive discussions. You can also expect to engage with each other and create an interactive session of ideas and feedback.

    This 2 part series has been approved for  3.00    HR (General)  recertification credit hours toward aPHR™, aPHRi™, PHR®, PHRca®, SPHR®, GPHR®, PHRi™ and SPHRi™ recertification through HR Certification Institute® (HRCI®).

    Please join us for a great workshop on adverse childhood experiences and how that affects the workplace.

    Participants in this workshop will:

    • Gain understanding about the effects of trauma on personal development
    • Gain understanding of how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) can affect future life outcomes including health, social, emotional, and workplace functioning
    • Learn how employers can facilitate resiliency in the workplace

    Childhood ACES and trauma often impact our lives well through adulthood. These impacts can include physical and emotional health, relationships, and work functioning. We will examine some of the findings from ACES research, with particular attention to impacts in workplace relationships and functioning, and consider how employers can help enhance employee resiliency.
