It's time to reconnect with your fellow Certified HR Specialists

REGISTRATION FEE: $1,095

STAY CURRENT WITH THE INFORMATION FROM THE SOURCE YOU TRUST

Ensure your organization is benefiting from best practices in HRM and remains compliant with recent legislative changes. As always, this year's Advanced Topics for Certified Human Resources Specialists will provide you with cutting-edge information on “hot topics” in human resources, a review of important court cases, and legislative updates regarding key employment laws.

Learn HR strategies that you can use to meet the challenges, and take advantage of the opportunities facing your organization.

The theme of this year's Advanced Topics class is HR's Time to Shine. From returning to work under Covid-19 to the need for reskilling, this is truly the time for HR to use their influence to facilitate individual and organizational success.

 

Agenda

Day 1:
  • Using influence to get things done
  • Coaching: a detailed model you can use to coach anyone in the organization
  • Providing meaningful feedback
Day 2:
  • Returning to work under Covid-19
  • Employment law update
  • Benefits trends for the new normal 
  • Workforce trends 
The class will also include facilitated discussion on issues of concern to the participants.

Note: This program is open only to current CHRS.

 

RECERTIFICATION CREDIT HOURS

Due to the significant disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are temporarily reducing the number of continuing education credits required for recertification to 14 credits. This reduction applies to recertifications that are due in December 2021.

This program has been approved for 14 continuing education credit hours towards Professional Development Program recertification.

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST

The Advanced Topics for CHRS program for 2020 was successfully held on April 22-29, 2021. We look forward to seeing everyone next year, hopefully in-person, for our annual program designed specifically for Certified HR Specialists.
