University holds tenth annual Institute for HR Professionals

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (May 13, 2004) -- An upcoming event at Ohio University - Zanesville will provide networking opportunities along with insight into current human resource (HR) issues. The 10th Annual Ohio University Human Resource Institute will take place from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 8th.

The theme, "Building a Healthy Workforce," will offer ideas for employers to develop an energetic and supportive work environment. Motivational speaker Mo Pieffer brings the theme across during his keynote address on "Bringing Out the Best in People." This session will provide the seven key principles to inspiring others.

Candy McBride, director of Ohio University - Zanesville's Office of Continuing Education, said, "In planning this seminar, we asked HR professionals what they needed. As a result, sessions on Workplace Violence, Union Awareness, and Privacy in the Workplace will be offered."

Updates on employment law will be presented by representatives from The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as well as an attorney from Downes, Hurst and Fishel. Their discussions will center on elements of an effective anti-harassment policy and best practices for proactive prevention. New information on the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) will also be available during the Institute.

Human resource agencies and organizations will be on site as resource vendors. Certification credit to PHR/SPHR from the HR Certification Institute has been approved for 6.25 hours.
