    Tough Questions HR Professionals are Facing- and How to Handle Them     

                Join us as Tara Motheral, JD  presents!                    

    As issues arise and your organization develops new policies, do you wonder how other companies are handling the same topic?  Would you like to know what benefits or working conditions are offered at other organizations, so that you can remain competitive for top talent?  Are there things your organization can be doing to be a better workplace?

    This presentation will highlight the top issues and questions facing  HR departments across northeast Ohio organizations. It will share common requests, and the guidance and best practices that are shared from local HR Advisors on a variety of topics, including legal compliance, day-to-day employment issues, and updating company policies. 

    In addition to best practices, we will highlight the results of recent employer surveys conducted around the Cleveland/Akron area, and share reported trends in policies and benefit practices, on topics like paid time off, parental leave policies, and health benefit offerings.
