Name That Leave (of Absence)

Name That Leave (of Absence)

No one wants to but we all have to deal with leaves of absence.
No one wants some dry presentation that numbs us to the core so that we learn nothing from the speaker.

Which is why we asked a spirited speaker – Barbara Trumbly –  to provide us with information in a fun (if it’s possible) way to involve the audience so that we all learn more about a dry subject.

State and federal law provide for more than a dozen types of protected leaves (it’s actually closer to 2-dozen, but who’s counting?) This includes FMLA, CFRA, PDL, as well as disability leave provided as a reasonable accommodation.

This presentation is not provided by an attorney but an HR consultant who deals with real life situations every day.

Are you a covered employer? If so, what is your responsibility? What is the employees responsibility and leave entitlement? What should you do? And when?

This seminar will provide employers, human resource professionals, supervisors and managers with examples and information concerning the various leaves. Attendees will learn how to apply practical procedures to the most common real-world leave management problems.

Hiring on Target: Recruiting and Hiring Strategies for Success

We typically hire or promote people that we like or that are technically good at their work. The problem is that interviewees learn to be likable. They are chameleons. And you can invest time, effort and money in someone that either really isn’t a fit and may need to be let go – or worse  – they stick around and you resolve to have people that do a mediocre job.

We have two speakers this month to give you some fresh perspective and solutions on this – Terri Carter of Barrett Business Services and Bart Gragg of Blue Collar University.

Bart Gragg’s interactive portion is called “Let The Job Talk!” It’s a way of thinking about the job beyond just the hard technical skills people need and even beyond their people skills.

Terri Carter will help you “Hire On Target” – Learn about best practices in recruiting and hiring the best talent for your company. This includes not only what to look for in resumes but what’s missing can tell you a lot as well.

Content is best suited for those who are involved in the selection process and those who make final hiring decisions.
