Free HR Webinar: Managing HR in Small Organizations


When: Wednesday, December 16, 2015 – 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. EST


In many organizations, the human resource function is handled by one person who often performs other roles, such as office management, accounting or finance. Many times those individuals have little-to-no formal training on human resource practices and employment law. This webinar will help participants identify key areas that need attention, as well as resources that may help them manage these areas, minimize exposure to the organization, and support a productive work environment. Areas covered will include:


  • Federal versus state laws – how do they work together and where can I find information about them?
  • Do I really need to buy those workplace posters?
  • Local HR associations and other resources
  • National associations and other resources
  • Consultants versus attorneys – when to use each?
  • Conducting an internal HR audit
