Calling newer managers! Join us for an action packed webinar covering a variety of Human Resources topics including:

  • Crafting the perfect interview: Great questions lead to great hires!
  • Radically Candid Employee Feedback: What if difficult conversations didn’t have to be difficult?
  • Employee Separations: Sending off people with dignity and respect.

Participants will leave with practical takeaways that they can implement immediately — questions to ask in an interview; step-by-step how to structure an interview process; how to handle ongoing performance reviews; example separation letters and required documentation in IL; and what you should (and shouldn’t) say to your team about a departing employee.

Why Attend?

Career Advancement: Leading teams is all about people and managing the hiring, onboarding, and separation of our teams members is a critical and essential executive skill set. HR is an evolving area of leadership and having an up to date training to speak to in future interviews is essential. 

Camp Advancement: As HR continues to evolve with the changing times, camps need to be sure their policies, procedures, and culture is meeting the needs (and sometimes requirements) of today.
