    These are challenging times for businesses – both large and small.  A tough economy, increasing demands from customers and more regulations are forcing businesses to re-evaluate how they operate.  The massive tax effects of the Healthcare Reform are changing the employment landscape.  How do businesses continue to grow and thrive?  What is the role of HR in helping to navigate this new environment?  

    In this session, we’ll talk about:

    • The current state of business and economy
    • The changing role of HR in business growth
    • The role of HR in how businesses react to the Healthcare Reform
