Join the Cross Timbers Society for Human Resource Management (CTSHRM) for their November meeting: The 'Adjusted' Role of the HR Professional. We'll be joined by speaker Staci Benavides.
In the past year, we saw HR get pulled into the role of heroes and villains. We were critical in helping organizations move to a full virtual environment. For companies that had essential workers, we helped field benefit and leave of absence information with data changing daily. Some of us were also on the giving and perhaps receiving end of furloughs and layoffs. So as HR professionals, how did we keep ourselves from not throwing in the towel and giving up on the profession and how do we prepare ourselves for the next time?
