As a leader responsible for human resources, you play an essential role in your organization. You are required to develop and implement personnel policies, keep abreast of evolving laws and regulations, and champion a healthy, happy, and respectful workplace.

INFONEX's three-day Human Resources Management for Indigenous and Northern Organizations course taking place December 4-6, 2018, in Whitehorse, will provide you with a mixture of learning opportunities and advance your knowledge in employment law, staff development, how to do employee evaluations, instill a team culture, and prevent bullying in the workplace.

Attend this conference and hear HR practitioners share their success stories of improving human resources policy, employee wellness, skills capacity development, and preventing bullying, at their respective organizations. Discuss approaches to managing employees and social media. Learn about how one employer aligns their policy with the community culture. Get a toolkit for how to influence people, which will help you instill a team approach to meeting your human resources objectives. Hear how the youth movement can help you attract and retain talent for your organization.

Human Resources Management for First Nations Governments will allow you to benefit from the thought-provoking discussions, need-to-know regulatory updates, and practical tool kits covering the full scope of human resource management at First Nations organizations. We hope to see you there.
