    • Have you ever wondered how other HR professionals “do it”? You know, those who manage to keep their head above water when they have zero help on a day-to-day basis?  Do you sometimes feel like you are all alone?  Are there resources available to you, on a zero budget basis that will save you time? What can you do when the boss says they want you to get some HR education and you don’t have any time?

      Spend some time with a HR professional who “has been there, done that” and worked with folks in similar circumstances every day. The information gained in this program will be invaluable to improving your role as the only HR professional in your workplace.

      Hear from Donna and her partner, Dave Ryan, HR pros who have both run a one-man shop. They have walked a mile in your shoes.  Their mantra is “get it for a dime… and get it on time!”

      Learn how to be more prepared for the demands of your job and how to make a positive impression on others in your organization. Learn how to organize the job of HR into manageable segments such as:  Recruiting and On-Boarding, Compensation and Benefits, Engagement and Retention, and Compliance. Leave with tips and tricks which will help you figure out how to prioritize your work, and what to try to contract with a consultant.
