    Presenting your HR Business Case to the C-Suite - Kendra Dodd

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify business problems where HR solutions can be most valuable. 

    2. Learn how to place a dollar value on the problems, solutions, and profit increase.

    3. Create business proposals that solve business problems with HR solutions. 

    This session will challenge you to think like a partner in the business. That means you need to think like a CEO - or find out how your CEO thinks - in order to identify business problems and opportunities and offer viable HR solutions. Your effectiveness as a partner in the business is predicated on how successful you are in speaking the language of your senior leaders. We will also discuss how to dig up and generate applicable data in order to calculate dollars and cents to present to the C-Suite. Finally, we will walk through a business proposal step by step.

    Employers face a challenging world in which they must maintain a workplace free from sex-based harassment and bullying, particularly given that employers can be held responsible for harassing behavior by employees at all levels and by non-employees, such as customers.  This session will address how to minimize the risk of harassment and bullying by establishing sound policies and consistently enforcing them with all employees, including executives.  The presentation will also discuss how to respond if an employee claims that harassment has occurred or if the employer becomes aware of harassment, even if no complaint is made.  Finally, the presentation will cover the public relations implications of harassment allegations and the associated response by companies and their boards, as well as the necessity of having a plan when crises arise.

    SHOW WHAT YOU KNOW! 

    GET CERTIFIED!

    TCSHRM offers a comprehensive 10-week Certification Preparation Course to prepare you for the SHRM certification exam!  Our instructors have been trained by SHRM to prepare you for the exam.  SHRM certification has always been the gold-standard for HR professionals. It’s time to get yours!

    The Certification Preparation Course will be held ten Thursday evenings from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM September 13 – November 15, 2018

    The world is changing. HR is changing.  SHRM credentialing has changed. As you may know, now instead of one credential, developed and endorsed by SHRM and administered and tested by HRCI, both SHRM and HRCI are now offering a credential for HR Professionals. SHRM has always been the leading HR authority throughout the world, and we believe that the SHRM certification will continue to be the industry standard.  The SHRM credentials:  SHRM-CP (SHRM-Certified Professional) and SHRM-SCP (SHRM-Senior Certified Professional) focus on teaching and testing the practical, real-world information that HR professionals need to find success in their careers today!  The SHRM credential is the next-generation credential for HR Professionals – a competency-based certification – demonstrating that you know the facts and how to apply them in the workplace.  The TCSHRM Certification preparation course will teach to the global Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK) and prepare participants for the comprehensive exam

    The course will be presented in the Court International Building in Saint Paul - on the border of Saint Paul and Minneapolis - on University Avenue West.    This site offers easy access (via highway or the Green Line) and ample free parking in the surface lot.  Complete directions and maps will be sent to all class participants.

    This course is specifically designed to help participants prepare to pass the SHRM-CP/SCP certification exams.  The ten-week sessions offer a broad review of the human resources competencies which are covered on the exam.  The TCSHRM course is different than many other courses offered, as it utilizes the SHRM Learning System resources coupled with knowledgeable professional instructors who are also subject matter experts currently working in the field – and they are certified HR professionals!  They are very committed to ensuring that YOU get certified as well! 

    The TCSHRM Course offers class participants a comprehensive classroom experience, as well as individual advice and direction from instructors, and study-group opportunities.   The SHRM Learning System class materials are provided to all participants.

    Reimagine...

    The Employment Life Cycle is no longer 'Business as Usual'

    This is not your traditional HR Conference! The employment life cycle is no longer 'business as usual', and neither is this event. Are you ready for some high-intensity (HR) interval training? MRA’s 2018 HR Conference has shorter sessions, more speakers, and will move at a faster pace, just like HR folks do!

    As thought leaders, MRA’s focus for this event is: What’s new? What’s the future? What trends do you see? What should HR be thinking about differently along the employment life cycle? Come join your HR peers, set your Fitbits, and get energized! This new format will move fast, get to the main points, and help you reimagine the future of HR!

    Love to attend the HR Conference but Minneapolis is too far to travel? Consider our live stream option so you can attend the HR Conference from your home or office without the travel time.
