Human Resources has earned a central role and much time in the spotlight during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to SHRM, it's going to take business and HR leaders on the front lines of workplaces to be strong, innovative and agile as organizations emerge and conduct business in this new normal. In this 3.5-hour interactive learning seminar, managers, directors, business owners and HR teams will discuss what this evolving situation has meant to organizations and how to move forward.

HR needs to utilize its compliance strengths while building their strategic presence in an authentic way that engages staff to come together as a team both remotely and in-person.
