    A Fresh Look at HR Basics

    The "flip side” of “The Great Resignation” is that many of us are accepting new HR Roles or starting at new companies. This event is designed to give you some helpful audit tips and basics to review when assessing your environment, as well as things to keep in mind when dealing with the human factor. Even if you are not in a new company, this will provide tips and resources for the new year ahead!
