    There’s no escaping the need to schedule, direct and host meetings as an HR professional. You've likely heard or read the statistics on meetings: 37% of employee time is spent in meetings, managers attend more than 60 meetings per month and 47% consider too many meetings the biggest waste of time. If members of the workforce are attending your meetings, whether it be for an important communication on benefits or a management training on sexual harassment, shouldn’t you ensure this is a valuable use of everyone’s time?

    Many meetings are poorly planned and as a result, the process itself is less than effective and your key message is lost. Yet, 92% of meeting attendees value meetings as an opportunity to contribute to the organization. So how can you leverage that opportunity to get your meeting participants engaged and build your credibility as an HR pro? It starts with planning.

    This engaging and interactive session will outline the best practice elements for planning an effective meeting, from the agenda development to engaging the group. Join us to learn techniques for "setting the meeting stage" so you are better enabled to deliver a successful workplace communication. Also, it’s important to note, the class has been approved for 1 SHRM recertification credit and 1 HRCI general recertification credit.
