The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) Annual Meeting
February 12–14, 2020 | Rosen Plaza Hotel, Orlando, Florida
In HIS Name HR, in conjunction with ABHE, is excited to announce the 2020 Annual Meeting presentation topics.
How to Develop a More Effective Employee Search Process
It’s no secret that your higher education institution wants to succeed. It should come as no surprise that your employees also want to succeed! Naturally, there’s often a strong, positive relationship between the two—when employees succeed, so do the institutions they serve.
A key question: How can organizations most effectively find, train, motivate, and encourage employees’ success?
Primary Topics Covered
- Marketing your institution in today’s difficult labor market
- What makes employers attractive?
- Where do institutions find the best employees?
- What are the three most important steps of an effective hiring process?
This presentation helps prepare not only those in HR but also anyone who might have an effect on hiring in your organization. The presentation is highly interactive (including table exercises) and gives participants the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations and professionals.
The Art of Employee Evaluation and Transition/Separation
Here, we examine the concept of a high-performance review process, and how your institution can optimize performance levels through an effective and enjoyable employee review process—a process that your employees will enthusiastically embrace and enjoy instead of dread.
We also discuss performance improvement plans that transition underperforming employees either to more suitable roles or out of the organization, and how to separate employees with grace.
Primary Topics Covered
- Taking steps – simple, impactful, and timely – to make the process gracefully effective
- Executing a comprehensive communication plan to all employees
- Avoiding the common pitfalls in other organizations
- Setting expectations
- Employee policy manuals
- Codes of conduct
- Counseling and disciplinary procedures
- Labor law overview
The training is highly interactive (including table exercises) and gives participants the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations and professionals.
