Human Resources (May 22-23)

This semi-annual program provides a roundtable opportunity for human resource leadership to address contemporary, strategic issues in human resource management. Regardless of company size or structure, energy industry human resource professionals face complex challenges related to recruitment and retention, employee assessment and training, succession planning and maintaining safe and compliant business practices. The program considers strategic inclusions such as collective bargaining agreements, benefits, employee diversity, performance management, compensation policies and change management.
