2017 HR Professionals - Building the Next Level of Leadership
In today’s workplace, it is not enough for HR professionals to maintain the status quo within their departments. Instead of focusing solely on administrative tasks, senior leaders now expect their HR teams to work strategically to support organizational goals.  These teams will struggle to do so, however, if their employees have not developed their skills to advance beyond administrative work.
To ensure that both your HR team and your organization remain competitive, it is more important than ever for your HR employees to develop mid- to senior-level competency.  Building on Hawaii Employers Council’s HR Fundamentals certificate training series, we are pleased to announce the 2017 HR Professionals series.  The series, which targets those professionals that already possess the knowledge and skills covered in HR Fundamentals, includes the following session topics:
