    2014 Annual Human Resources Conference—how do you find time to maximize compliance, minimize legal risk and still help attract talent, develop your key performers, and align HR with the business needs of the organization? This premier annual event is designed to provide tangible, practical steps and sound advice that human resources professionals can immediately apply to help make their difficult jobs a little easier.

    Through comprehensive professional development programs for every level of experience, top national and Pennsylvania experts will provide the latest, most up-to-date information on critical employee issues that will impact how you do your job now and in the coming year:

    • An update on the impact of Ebola and pandemic flu on employers
    • The annual Employment Law Update on the top issues facing HR professionals

    • 70 Percent of workers are disengaged: Why Good Employees Leave Good Employers—the main causes of disengagement, and how to use exit interviews to evaluate and change your corporate culture.
    • Workplace bullying—a bigger problem than most companies realize, workplace bullying is abusive conduct that is threatening, humiliating or intimidating and prevents work from getting done or directly interferes with work (sabotage).
    • The hidden biases of gender discrimination with men and women in the workplace—how a company can identify those biases that negatively impact each group, and begin a learning process for prevention.

    And the Keynote Presentation: Working with any Personality Type. The HR professional has to understand and interact with all types of people and personalities. For the first time, we have invited a "People Skills Coach" to explain how to adapt to different types of personalities.

    Network with hundreds of your peers from across the state who are facing similar issues, and visit with a variety of exhibitors featuring consultants and companies showcasing a vast array of HR help and business services.
