HR Acuity Employee Relations Roundtable Event

The HR Acuity® Employee Relations Roundtable is an innovative, one of a kind event for Chief Human Resource Officers and Leaders of Employee Relations. Imagine an interactive discussion with experienced HR practitioners from institutions around the country who will be discussing the employee relations analytics,organizational design, and trending employee relations issues. This year we will also be breaking into smaller groups to discuss specific topics of interest such as global ER, investigation strategies and managerial accountability.  The HR Acuity® Roundtable facilitates dialogue, encourages sharing, and offers a unique platform to interact with other senior HR professionals about best practice employee relations. With four interactive sessions, the Roundtable promises to motivate practitioners to reconsider their established approaches to today’s toughest HR challenges and leave with a toolkit of ideas and strategies. Each participant will also receive a bio book containing contact details for all the participants so that the networking can continue long after the event.
