HR Responsibilities for County Officials (Part 1 of 2)

03/24/2021

Wednesday, March 24   10am - 11:15am, CT

Description: The HR Function in local government has become increasingly complex! Gone are the days when “HR” meant you were simply talking about payroll and benefits. Join us for this 2-part series where we break it down for you in an easy to understand format. Human Resources Management essentially has two dimensions: The technical side of HR and the not-so-technical side… also called Strategic HR. Part 1 will focus on an overview of Technical HR – terms and labor laws you need to recognize, resources to help you dig deeper when needed, and key HR processes within every organization. These are the building blocks. A basic grasp of Technical HR is needed in order for county officials to fulfill an even more important role… the not-so-technical side of things is where our county leaders can *shine*! Be sure to join us for Part 2 to learn more.

HR Responsibilities for County Officials (Part 2 of 2)

03/31/2021

Wednesday, March 31   10am - 11:15am, CT

Description: Part 2 in this series is all about the not-so-obvious side of the HR function. This requires us to look beyond the administrative tasks of payroll and benefits, policy manuals and labor regulations to see a bigger picture and create a bigger plan. Plan = Strategy. Strategic Human Resources is all about linking the HR function to the overall goals of the County. We often have this feeling that we are trying to do more with less. Does your county or department have a long-term plan to counter those thoughts? Have you thought beyond this year’s budget or next month’s meeting? What is it that helps us recruit and retain qualified and happy employees? What is your role in all of this? Strategic Human Resources does not need to be an overwhelming, abstract concept. Whether you’re a brand new official or a veteran who’s been around for a while, you can contribute to future growth and success by focusing on strategic decisions. We will cover key tips for helping you become a strategic thinker invested in your county’s well-being.
