“Human resources is an exciting, dynamic field in which professionals have the opportunity to take on many roles. The assumption is that HR professionals are in an office only to enforce dress codes, celebrate birthdays and process hiring paperwork, but they do much, much more,” said Beyer. “An HR department can impact a businesses goals and direction significantly because it is an integral part of operations. This webinar will highlight the many hats HR professionals have to wear and provide insight into the career as a whole.”
The webinar will cover topics such as: employment & recruiting, training & development, compensation, benefits, employee services, employee & community relations, personnel records, health & safety, and strategic planning. More specifically, Mr. Beyer will address HR issues like productivity enhancement, incentive pay, profit sharing, outplacement services, health & wellness and more. For current students the overview will provide a look at what to expect in a human resources career and give a general background of the field for students interested in enrolling in human resources courses online.
