Human Resource Essentials

About the Workshop

Nationwide and statewide shortages of certificated and classified staff are impacting recruitment and retention in LEAs.  Teachers, Principals, Directors, as well as qualified classified staff in all areas have more options and flexibility to move among employers.  Ensure your competitive edge to retain the most valuable resource in your district – highly qualified staff by attending our HR Essentials workshop.  With as much as 90% of a district’s General Fund revenue being committed to employee compensation, local educational agencies cannot afford inefficiency in personnel management. This workshop focuses on essential human resource (HR) operations and best practices in personnel management that, if implemented, can minimize legal risks and protect scarce financial resources. Additionally, the workshop will cover recent changes in law in the area of employment and labor relations.
