Squeaky Clean HR Series
Effective management of human resources is essential for creating successful organizational results. As a part of doing business, nonprofit organizations must be aware of and adhere to all legal employment requirements, exercise fair and equitable HR practices that attract and retain qualified individuals, and provide a safe work environment. The Squeaky Clean HR Series will help nonprofit leaders and HR staff to provide a safe, welcoming, and productive work environment while protecting their employees and their organization from harmful and illegal practices.
The Squeaky Clean HR Series content is sponsored by Centris Federal Credit Union and is presented by the Human Resource Association of the Midlands and the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands.
Escape from Meeting Hell
Days, weeks, months, years of our lives are slipping away in stuffy, overcrowded conference rooms and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Eleven million business meetings are held in the U.S. every day, and often they bring down morale and blow holes in the workday, and then another round of meetings is called! Do you spend a lot of time in meetings with no clear agenda or timeframe, discussing items irrelevant to your role, repeating conversations over and over, dominated by personalities? Do you wonder when you'll have time to actually do the work? Welcome to meeting hell. Professionals attend nearly 60 meetings per month and research indicates that over 50% of meeting time is wasted.
Participants will learn:
- The steps to escape from meeting hell.
- How to decide whether a meeting is necessary or not.
- The elements of successful meetings.
- The art of professional courtesy and respecting co-workers’ time.
- How to accommodate and manage different personality types and hierarchy in your meetings.
- How to handle sensitive topics in meetings.
- How to set an organizational meeting policy.
