Employment Law Compliance for Banks

HR professionals with relevant, practical and up-to-date advice in employment law compliance. Focusing on recent developments in federal law— as well as in federal regulatory agencies and their initiatives— this interactive forum will allow participants to ask questions and discuss solutions while networking with other bank HR professionals.

Collaborative Communication

The number one concern raised in most organizations today is communication; or lack thereof. We disagree, we argue, we debate, and we stay silent. We use tactics that help us get our way or shut other people down. We damage relationships because of these things. We communicate with people in ways in which we like to be communicated with but what we don't realize is 75% of the population communicates different than us. We are often unaware of how ineffective our approach might be or we might not even have the right skill set. Often times during challenging conversations, we see others as the problem and seldom see ourselves. What if… "We" might be part of the problem?"

Stepping Up to Supervisor

You have excelled as an individual contributor and now it's time to move into a supervisory role. You are excited about your new role and promise to never make the same mistakes that "terrible" bosses have made with you! You start your new position and are told, "Just ask if you have any questions. Good luck!" Now what? You have great plans for your new role, but you aren't exactly sure what it is you should be doing or not doing in your new position. Nobody said that managing, supervising or leading would be easy but with the right expectations, tools and skills, you will learn what it takes to be an effective supervisor.
