Human Resource Essentials Workshop

About the Workshop

Local educational agencies (LEAs) invest heavily in employee compensation (as much as 90% of General Fund revenue). Protecting the investment through retention of high-quality employees is essential in today’s competitive market. LEAs cannot afford inefficiency in personnel management. Extreme shortages of certificated and classified staff are driving up the costs for recruitment. Teachers, principals, directors, and classified staff in all areas are exercising their options to move among employers, leaving experience gaps in their wake. Ensure your competitive edge to retain the most valuable resource in your LEA—highly qualified staff—by attending our Human Resource Essentials workshop. This full-day workshop focuses on essential human resource (HR) operations, including recruitment and retention as well as best practices in personnel management to 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, proposed new laws affecting personnel management, and employee and employer rights and benefits.
