HR 201: Diversity & Inclusion – How to Hire and Leverage Uniqueness

Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) has partnered with TEC Edmonton and Juna Consulting Inc., generously sponsored by Parlee McLaws LLP & ADR Institute of Alberta to bring a series of six essential Human Resource topics to small business owners as well as managers, supervisors or anyone who deals with HR capacity as a part of their organization. This 6 session breakfast series will take place in Fall 2017 in Edmonton, AB.

Join us for breakfast and our next session in the 201 HR series focused on Diversity & Inclusion – How to Hire and Leverage Uniqueness

Managers don’t tend to focus on employee motivation until it’s lost, and most managers think money is the top motivator; but it’s not. Things that are most motivating to employees tend to be easy to do and cost effective. But, the hardest part of rewarding performance at work doesn’t follow the Golden Rule (treat other people the way you want to be treated).

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Re-evaluate their current job descriptions and recruitment efforts to expand their reach
  • Assess their working conditions/environments to broaden opportunities – accommodate different workers that add value
  • Select different hiring tools that determine best “fit” for applicable jobs

Pricing & Location
Each session is priced at $39.00 per person, not including taxes or additional fees. Cost of workshop includes a delicious breakfast!

Location of Session 1: Unit 301 10310 Jasper Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB
Time: 7:30 am to 9:00 am
