If you’ve been looking for quick, effective tips to working with Human Resources to resolve your employee issues, this is the session for you. We’re here to help! The biggest challenges faced by human resources departments in property management are distance and job families. Your human resources department might be 1,000 miles away and, at the same time, you might be supervising sales teams, property managers, maintenance professionals, and more. It is important that both operations and human resources try to speak the same language. The area of employment law and doing everything the right way seems like a minefield. We’ve picked ten concepts to share with you that, when understood and applied correctly and with your best effort, a great deal of liability can be lifted. This is not a legal seminar. Please join us for an interactive discussion of a powerful set of basics in the HR field that can help in more quickly solving issues and give you a powerful insight into handling your people issues a bit more quickly and efficiently; that’s always a good thing, right? You can survive today’s litigious environment.

Learning Objectives

  • Have a list of solutions to human resource challenges to refer back to during their management career
  • Understand the biggest risk areas for their company in the labor and employment area
  • Have confidence when you reach out to partner with your human resources team that you have gathered the information they will need in order to help you.
