    Historically, the Human Resource Management function throughout organizations has been responsible for “doing“ the human resource management function of the organization. This session will discuss the increasing focus on employee empowerment and involvement in decision making, the evolving role of the human resource management function and how you can evolve your function from transactional to strategic. 

    Increasing the function of the human resource management department is to:

    1) Train, coach and support the other parts of the organization in the completion of basic human resource management functions

    2) provide technical and legal support for the human resource management function
    3) provide organization-wide perspectives on human resource management
    4) manage organizational culture. 

    This seminar focuses on why this transition has occurred and what it means for those in human resource management and those who are responsible for an organization’s human resource management functions.

    Our definition and expectations of gender are expanding. The boundaries of acceptable workplace behavior are changing. Does your team know the new “rules”? A comment or a touch may be perceived as innocent by one - but as harassment by another. An offhanded remark towards a transgender or non-binary associate may lead to costly harassment complaints.

    This talk was created to address the concerns of all sides of the #MeToo movement. Bernadette will address LGBTQ inclusivity, unconscious bias, and demystify common assumptions and shifting boundaries in the workplace. She delivers humorous, relatable messages with tangible action steps.

    Learning Objectives:
    Objective 1: Strategies for maintaining professional boundaries to minimize the risk of blurred lines leading to harassment accusations

    Objective 2: Learn about the diversity of gender, including best practices in interacting with transgender and non-binary associates

    Objective 3: How to recover from accidentally offending someone and how to speak up if you witness it

    Objective 4: The ARC Method℠ of communication, used to gain clarity in any situation

    Bernadette Smith is CEO of Equality Institute, a firm dedicated to consulting with businesses on issues of harassment and diversity and inclusion. She speaks on these topics to audiences of CEOs, associations, leadership teams and more.

    The unfortunate truth is the use of illicit drugs continues to be a persistent, growing problem in Wisconsin communities. What do I, as owner, CEO or HR leader, do to protect my company?This widespread epidemic is in your workplace – no business type or profession is immune. Many employers think their policy is enough to protect their business – think again. Employers need to address this problem head-on, especially given the new federal regulations and state actions legalizing marijuana which has complicated the issue and rendered some of the old accepted policies and procedures obsolete. This program will address:
    •the scope of the drug problem, the many ways it can impact your organization; and identifying some of the signs associated with drug use;
    •the impact of new laws and recommended policies and procedures in their wake; and
    •the strategies employers can legally implement to effectively manage the risks associated with drug abuse in today’s environment.
