Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn the Top 5 Priorities for HR in small business and practical, inexpensive solutions to address them. 

The small business HR professional has a unique work environment. With only one or two people in the department, they are usually expected to be generalists able to answer all HR-related questions. But they are also expected to be specialists in some areas. With so many issues and limited resources, how do these professionals know what to focus on? Based on a 2022 survey of small business HR practitioners, this session is a collection of your voices bringing to light the issues you face. Using evidence-based research from the Society of Human Resource Management's Body of Competency and Knowledge, we will explore today's hot issues and your real-world challenges.

The session will focus not only on how you can help your business grow, but will also provide helpful hints and tools you can use for your own personal career development. The presentation includes information about how you can increase your business acumen and build trust and influence with your leaders.

Learning Objectives:

  • Top 5 Priorities (in order) facing HR in small businesses
  • Why they are priorities; including changes in laws, business environment, and economic drivers
  • Practical and inexpensive (even free!) solutions to the Top 5 Priorities that small businesses can use right away

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
