    Location Change (minor)- The Grand Reserve

    Due to large attendance (yay!!) at our meeting on Tuesday, we will be located in the larger room/space called The Grand Reserve. It is connected to The Speakeasy. The Grand Reserve is the room we were in for our February AND March meetings!

    Please plan to enter through The Grand Reserve, which is where registration will be set up but you are more than welcome to park and enter through the Speakeasy, if that is easier for you!

    Lunch will be served at 11:15AM

    Parking Reminder- Larger crowds call for busy parking!

    Please remember to review the parking map below, prior to the meeting. Note: Street parking IS allowed!

    Thank you for going through the motions with us at our new location.  We're happy to have such great attendance at our meetings this year! We're loving it!

    Please email communications@bgshrm.org if you have any questions/concerns!

    HRCI & SHRM Pre-Approved Free Webinar

    Wednesday 3/21/2018 : 2-3PM EDT

    Please join AssuredPartners and change communication expert Kip Soteres for an HRCI and SHRM pre-approved webinar addressing how your onboarding process can improve employee retention and appreciation for your company and its benefits beginning on Day 1.

    Employees recruited into your company have often been shown the best and brightest face — they are likely excited to be starting a new job and have been sold on the best features of your organization. Day 1 orientation and ensuing on-boarding efforts can either continue that momentum or kill it. 20 percent of employee turnover happens in the first 45 days of employment; effectively communicating benefits in a sustained way can make a significant positive difference in the way new employees view their job and the way they define their relationship with their employer. Please join our webinar to receive information and training on how to communicate information on your company and benefits effectively during the onboarding process to obtain the best results.
