| Competencies: HR Expertise, Leadership & Navigation
Workplace Application:
As workplaces increase in complexity and diversity, so do the issues they present. Learn how HR flexes and evolves to meet these challenges. 

We’ve all said it: “I would write a book, but who would believe these stories are true?” Unfortunately, many of the tales are far too real! Whether the situation involves the increasingly complicated issues arising out of political conversations and debate at work, the rebound effects of #MeToo in the workplace and how to address them without losing our humanity, or the importance of demonstrating empathy and keeping employees motivated and engaged in a confusing and often-complicated world, the workplace has become far more complicated to manage. This fast-paced session focuses on uncommon HR issues and examines practical, business-focused solutions that you can use immediately to address those problems. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the effects of the #MeToo movement in the workplace and how to encourage managers not to lose their humanity.
  • Recognize the importance of demonstrating empathy and confronting complicated issues in an increasingly complicated HR environment.
  • Discuss and examine the potential risks associated with political conversation and debate at work in a presidential election year.
  • Analyze how relevant employment laws are implicated in these often-tenuous employee relations and legal concerns.
