WELCOME TO THE HELENA SOCIETY OF HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
The most valued and accessible HR resource for continuing education and knowledge in the Helena community.
Successful companies value diversity & inclusion…although many don’t know what it is. Many HR professionals and hiring managers shudder at the mere mention of it simply because they’ve heard the “buzz” word, they’re pretty sure it’s the right thing to do, but they have no idea what it looks like, let alone how to implement it. In fact, are you wondering if we even have D & I in the 406? Of course we do! We will spend this hour talking about the who, what, when, where, why, and how of D & I. The WHO will be an in-depth look at one specific group – our Military. The SHRM Foundation, along with some major partners, have developed the Veterans at Work Certificate program for HR professionals, hiring managers, and front-line supervisors. This multi-faceted program will help you recognize the value that this talented group of professionals brings to the civilian workplace and will offer tools and resources to help you build an inclusive veteran, guard, and reserve program in your organization.
