How to AUDIT your (re-employment) marketing campaign BEFORE the critical January hiring cycle
Speaker(s): Susan McDonald

Date: Monday, December 1st

GVFHRA Transitions & Career Management Group networking meeting.   

TOPIC: How to AUDIT your (re-employment) marketing campaign BEFORE the critical January hiring cycle …to identify where/how you need to  recalibrate efforts to generate better results & outcomes in the new year!    
Register on-line at www.gvfhra.org 

December is typically a slow month for job seekers as most companies tend to put off hiring until January. This time can be most effectively spent in taking a serious and objective view of what you’ve been doing to assess what’s working; what’s not and where & how you need to recalibrate for improved results. In fact, it would be very prudent to take advantage of this lull in the action to fine tune your campaign.  Participants will be re-energized as they discover things that are in their control that can generate different/improved results.

The Dec 1st session will be an interactive and dynamic session to help participants audit their campaign (approach and activities) looking at:

  • Where have efforts generated good to great traction; phone screens, 1st, 2nd, finalist rounds and offer – lots of patterns to look for here!

            - types of organizations, titles and comp ranges that are truly your ideal but realistic
              targets?  Any patterns or root causes that you can see?

  • Where are you tending to ‘break down’; where does progress tend to be stopping? Any patterns?

  • Where have your efforts generated little to no traction – why do you think?

  • How might you recalibrate some aspect(s) of your campaign in order to generate better traction and results for your target job(s) within target companies?


Susan McDonald, Vice President Human Capital Management Consulting, CCI Consulting will facilitate this session.

Blurred Lines: The Intersection of Workers' Compensation, FMLA and ADA

8:00 AM to 8:30 AM-Registration
8:30 AM to 9:45 AM-Program and Q & A after 
Human Resources plays a significant role in reducing liabilities and diffusing any potential legal actions against an employer. Human resources professionals who will emerge as true leaders in their organizations are those who will engage in understanding the laws specific to the HR function that often leave employers vulnerable. This presentation will focus on one of the most difficult challenges facing employers today – managing employee leave in compliance with FMLA, ADA and workers' compensation laws. As the first line of defense against lawsuits, this presentation will empower and inspire HR professionals to be more confident in appropriately handling these complicated matters on behalf of their employers. One of the most difficult challenges facing HR professionals today is managing employee leaves in compliance with the FMLA, ADA and workers' compensation laws. Although they are completely distinct, these laws have significant interplay, often creating "blurred lines" that can lead to liabilities for employers. This session will provide practical advice for HR professionals that will enable them to confidently and successfully navigate the medical leave laws. Drawing upon real-life case studies that illustrate how these laws differ in terms of their purpose, coverage, rights and requirements, attendees will gain perspective and insights on managing all types of employee medical leaves and when and how the various laws apply. Delivered in an interactive format, the session will feature state-of-the-art polling software, whereby the audience will have the opportunity to respond to multiple choice and true or false questions, often revealing surprising results, and encouraging feedback and discussion.
