hu·man re·sour·ces (noun)
The department (or individual) that handles hiring, engaging, supporting, tracking and training of current and potential employees.

Does this definition encompass your current responsibilities? Probably not. A lot has changed since you started your career, especially given the events of 2020, and the role of HR keeps expanding—from crisis management and remote operations to diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) and employee well-being. At the same time, your ability to influence change in your organization hasn’t increased. Bottom line—you need support, guidance and a break.

While we can’t provide you with an extra hour in the day, we can help you prioritize what’s most important and incorporate strategic HR practices into your already-packed day. Quantum Workplace’s Shane McFeely and Teresa Preister will share highlights from the latest employee engagement research and next steps for focusing on what matters most.

In this webcast, you'll learn about:

  • Important themes from the events of the last year
  • Key insights and strategies from America’s Best Places to Work
  • How to uncover and master your priorities to take control of your own success
  • Tips for fusing priorities into strategic HR practices, systems and processes
