The HR Forum provides an outlet for bankers to discuss important issues, dissect problems and gain insights into best practices with banks from across the state. It's a fact. Employee turnover costs your company plenty, and losing one of your star workers can be staggering. And while it's easy to assume that your most capable workers are satisfied and loyal, these highly talented employees are in big demand … everywhere. That's why they require special attention and a different managerial approach than other employees. But in a cultural and legal environment that emphasizes consistency and fairness in managing employees, finding an effective, sustainable way to lead high performers is a challenge. The HR Forum sessions provide Open Forum Discussions, topical presentations and a quarterly Employment Law Update to help you through.
