Topic: Providing HR Guidance and Assistance During COVID-19 with Sandra Dickerson

October 28th, SMHRA will be holding a webinar from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM with Sandra Dickerson of Your People Professionals.

The COVID pandemic has forced HR teams to quickly adapt to new ways of providing guidance and assistance to their companies.  Two traditional times for in person contact is when we are hiring or firing employees, with both an opportunity for high risk in this pandemic.  Join Sandra Dickerson for a discussion of ways to accomplish these functions while maintaining COVID protocols and leaving employees with a sense of personal interaction.
