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 that 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, follow a well thought-out strategic plan, 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 hold even the most difficult conversations. 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 Human Resource Management for Indigenous Communities, 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 imagine 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. Then register immediately to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to seeing you.
