HR From the Ground Up: Minimizing Risk Through Effective HR

OnDemand Webinar (85 minutes)

Understand the transactional, strategic, and analytical roles of a human resource department.Ensuring a positive workplace experience for employees is a critical component in the financial success of an organization. Unhappy, undervalued, unsafe, and under-compensated employees are costly to businesses. Failures in these areas can result in expensive high turnover rates, compliance complaints, regulatory fines and investigations, and unsafe workspaces. The human resources department in any business acts as the gatekeeper to maintain a best workplace for employees with competitive compensation and benefits, a diverse and inclusive workplace culture, and a safe and compliant workspace with solid policies and procedures. A challenge for any human resource professional is to maintain compliance with various federal, state, and local regulations while still balancing employee satisfaction and shareholder expectations. This topic will provide human resource practitioners and leaders with guidance on how to build a successful employee-base that is engaging, compliant and competitive.
