HR Specialist Summit 2023

Stop wondering “Am I doing it right?”

Get up-to-date HR solutions during our 2-track Compliance & Strategies virtual event.

We’re coming off one of the biggest workplace shake ups in modern history. Employers bounced from managing pandemic regulations… to a remote work movement… to a red hot hiring market. These major, back-to-back events have shaken up your HR departments and trickled down into your everyday documentation — from hiring forms and leave accommodations, to manager training and handbook policies. And while we’re hopeful that this period of rapid workplace changes might be coming to an end, we aren’t counting on it.

We know how challenging it is to stay on top of changing employment laws and evolving HR trends— all while trying to implement new best practices in your organization. That’s why we’re back this Fall for the 7th annual HR Specialist Summit — a comprehensive digital workshop that features 10 nationally recognized lawyers and HR trainers ready to answer your questions and help prepare your department for whatever comes next.
