Program Descriptions

“Launch & Grow” (October 6): Have you recently become an employer? Are you planning to hire employees? Or do you already have employees and want to make sure you have the right processes in place? This session provides a basic understanding of employer responsibilities and good, foundational HR practices. This workshop introduces small employer requirements, including new-hire paperwork and reporting, payroll, employment posters and notices, workers’ and unemployment compensation, employee files and record-keeping, critical employment policies, employee compensation and benefits, and training. Participants leave with a list of online resources so they can explore the topics in greater depth after the session.

“Human Resources Laugh & Learn” (October 13): Are your people practices fair, consistent, and compliant? Your answer might be “Yes” or “I hope they are,” but it might also be “I have no clue!” In this “non-conventional” HR workshop, participants explore a popular TV show to identify behaviors and habits that are not okay for businesses and that leave them open to great risk. By the end of the session, participants will be able to assess how well their businesses comply with various laws and HR best practices.

Living in the World of Cyber Liability (October 27): Clark Insurance joins KMA for this session, which explores how businesses and employers function in today’s electronic age of storing, using, and sharing employee and customer information and documents via computers, networks, smart phones, tablets, and more. Today’s businesses need to protect themselves, their employees, their customers, and their information from the damaging results of cyber-attacks. This session provides critical information intended to ensure what company policies and procedures need to be in place to prevent, respond to, and rectify security breaches.
