As a Human Resources Manager your job is to strengthen the skills, competencies and abilities of the employees who are critical to the success of your organization, minimize conflict that can undermine success and comply with a myriad of complex workplace laws just waiting to trip you up. You can't reach your organizational goals if your workforce is not functioning effectively, conflict is rumbling below the surface or time, money and resources are being wasted fighting time-consuming, expensive legal challenges.

Formidable barriers stand in your way. To achieve organizational goals, you need to understand the dimensions of your role, assist employees in achieving their goals and engage employees so they are not just putting in time. You need to understand and manage the conflicts that are inevitable in any organization and confidently address difficult situations. Of equal importance, you have to be on top of a whole lot of complex laws that can undermine your effectiveness.

That's why we created First Nations Human Resources Management 2018, a program specifically designed to provide the HR essentials required to address the unique challenges facing aboriginal organizations. The program will provide the in-depth information, strategies and techniques you need to effectively manage performance, engage employees, and productively deal with conflict to avoid the pernicious effects of festering negativity. Experts will explain workplace legislation so it makes sense to you and address the steps you must take to ensure compliance. You will return to your organization having made an invaluable investment in your professional ability and your organization's future.

Take a few moments to review the jam-packed agenda and consider the leg-up the information throughout will give you. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to learn from and network with other first nations HR managers, leading consultants and the most well-informed lawyers you will find anywhere. Register immediately to avoid disappointment.
