Presentation Description

Being a Solo HR Practitioner in a small or medium-size organization or in a small HR team of three or less people can be a challenge.  Come learn about how a Solo HR Group that meets monthly and emails daily on issues and challenges may be just what you’re looking for to help you build a network of colleagues from a variety of organizations who can share knowledge, seek advice, provide support and tangible resources for one another.  We have had a successful group of 32 members going strong for four+ years, and are looking to either expand or create a new group that can benefit from teaming with others that are in the same boat as you.  Please bring an item or two that is challenging for you at the moment to discuss.
