Oct 2 - HR Department of One: Strategies for Success (Millbrae)

OCTOBER 2, 2019
Westin SFO Airport, 1 Old Bayshore Highway, Millbrae, CA 94030

Heading an HR Department of One (HR DOO) is a daunting task - time is short, resources are limited, and constantly shifting priorities can be a major issue. HR DOOs are expected to think strategically, manage the full spectrum of HR responsibilities, and serve an entire organization, all while keeping up-to-date on everchanging regulations in the employment law landscape.

So, how do you elevate HR as a solo practitioner? How can you balance strategy and operations? How do you best demonstrate the value that HR brings to your organization? Join other HR DOOs in this 10-hour interactive learning program designed to help you analyze and enhance the HR practices in your organization. The program uses a three-step framework (Assess, Build, Map) and hands-on exercises to help you measure your current practices, build a set of realistic best practices, and map those practices to what is achievable in your organization.

Join fellow HR DOOs and your expert instructor during a series of topic-based, in-depth conversations and activities focused on four distinct themes relevant to HR DOOs: Employing Strategies for Retention (including Talent Acquisition, Workforce Development, and Employee Engagement), Shaping Positive Culture, Balancing Strategy and Operations, and Communicating with Impact. Grow your HR DOO toolbox as you leave with practical tools and techniques that will help you grow your skills and meet the challenging needs of your organization.
