We Wrote the Diversity Policy…Isn’t That Enough???
Presented by Christy Pruitt-Haynes, Owner, Christy Pruitt-Haynes Consulting

Everyone has their own definition of diversity and their own reason why it does or doesn’t work, but deep down most of us think that the world would be a little better off if everyone just saw things our way. We all strive to be confident, competent, and consider ourselves successful so when people look, act or talk differently than we do our first impulse may be, “why are they doing it that way, don't they know the company would be more successful if everyone was just like me.”

We’ll not only define diversity in business terms but go on to teach how all of those different ways of thinking and acting will move your company towards excellence.
You'll walk away with an actionable plan that will strengthen your organization, improve engagement and enhance the bottom line.
Learning objectives include:

  • How to encourage all employees to bring their unique best selves to work
  • How internal diversity adds to the bottom line of your organization
  • How to overcome objections to diversity including increased recruiting costs, assumed inability to be a good culture fit and lack of qualified candidates

Schedule: Doors open at 7:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.

Breakfast:

  • Members: $18 by end of business Monday, May 29, $24 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $24 by end of business Monday, May 29, $32 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $9 by end of business Monday, May 29, $12 afterwards.*

Identity Theft in the Workplace and its Impact on HR
Presented by Kris Evans, Partner, Harvard Risk Management Corporation 

Identity Theft has been the number one consumer complaint with the FTC for 16 consecutive years, and the risk has never been greater than it is right now. From employees to customers, there is a major need to educate on all levels and protect sensitive data. In this presentation, participants will learn about the major types of identity theft, as well as how to be more prepared to protect non-public information (NPI).

During this course, you will learn how the theft of your employee’s identities affects not only absenteeism, but also presenteeism.  You will also learn how data breaches occur, and things that you should be aware of from an HR perspective.  Finally, you will know what steps can be taken from an HR standpoint to be more proactive in helping your employees deal with this devastating crime while protecting your company’s non-public information.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will:

  1. Have a better understanding of the different forms of identity fraud, how each one occurs, and how they affect HR professionals.
  2. Receive direction on reducing absenteeism and loss of productivity through presenteeism that can occur if an employee is an identity theft victim.
  3. Understand how to educate employees on protecting company data and safeguarding non-public information (NPI), and learn Identity Theft prevention techniques that can be integrated into an employee training session.
