Human Resources Workshop Agenda
General Session – Trevina Broussard
Hire right: Spot the eagles among turkeys
If you’re going to succeed in business, there’s one key area you have to master – how to find, hire and keep eagle employees. This interactive session will equip you with hiring tools, tips, and techniques that’ll make life easier and take the guesswork out of hiring and retaining not just employees, but eagle employees.
Creating a contagious culture of caring
Learn why so many employee-employer relationships fail in the first six months and discover the steps you need to take to prevent this from happening. In this session, Trevina will outline five steps to generate a culture of caring, reduce employee turnover and create a highly engaged and motivated workforce.
Rotate through all three 60-minute sessions
Thrive in a multi-generational, multi-personality workplace – Trevina Broussard
Increasingly, younger employees are leading older team members, and that’s turned the established order on its head. This new scenario can cause problems and misunderstanding. The flip side is that it also presents opportunities for sharing knowledge and experience. This session explores how to thrive in a multi-generational, multi-personality workplace.
Navigating the roadways of stress – John Shutske
Running a business requires tough decisions, leading to added stress. Learn the basics of everyday and acute stress in addition to how long-term pressure can create a vicious cycle of chronic stress. Shutske will map out the negative outcomes of unresolved chronic stress and its impacts on health, including impaired decision-making abilities, addiction, depression, and suicide risk. Learn to take control.
While agricultural work isn’t typically considered athletic, the associated movements of bending, lifting and pushing would prompt most athletes to warm up before performing these daily activities. In this hands-on session, obtain the skills and resources to initiate a worksite-wellness program and learn preventive health strategies and routines to prevent injuries.
