Human Resource Essentials Workshop

About the 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.

Workshop Topics

  • Assessing your HR IQ
  • Organizing the HR office for operational efficiency and success
  • Best practices in recruiting, hiring, retaining, and onboarding new team members
  • Nondiscrimination in employment and workplace accommodations
  • Proper classification of employees, substitutes, temporary, and short-term staff
  • Best practices in employee supervision and evaluation
  • Employee misconduct and preparing for dismissal
  • Workplace investigation basics
  • Recent and proposed legislation impacting HR
