Now more than ever, it’s incredibly important to have a trusted peer group of HR professionals to confer with about emerging trends and challenges in our field. We saw so much change so fast in the first few months of the COVID-19 outbreak, and no doubt this will continue through 2020 and into 2021 — if not beyond.

Due to rapidly shifting circumstances, Wipfli has created a dynamic and interactive HR forum specifically for financial institutions, constructed with a flexible agenda that allows us to shift or add topics as new issues surface.

The same people will participate in each forum session throughout the year, allowing individuals to develop powerful and lasting professional relationships and to engage in specific problem solving. Our facilitators will customize your forum to fit the needs of your group and emerging challenges.

The forums will be held monthly from January through September.

Who Should Attend
Appropriate for individuals who have participated in the foundational HR forum or who have at least five years of experience in HR management. These advanced topics will explore high-level initiatives that will enhance your effectiveness and the role of HR in your institution.

Discussion Topics
These advanced topics explore high-level initiatives that will enhance your effectiveness and the role of HR in your institution. Some of the hot topics we’ll discuss include:

The New Normal: HR is performing a balancing act between protecting employees and ensuring your institution can operate sustainably. It is a constantly changing environment of health, financial, technical, legal and moral factors that influence our decision-making. We will address these interwoven influencers on corporate and personal workplace behaviors and tap into the wisdom of each group member to explore options and problem-solve dilemmas.

Compensation Planning and Pay Transparency: Compensation is always a critical HR topic even in the best of times. In highly uncertain times, it is even more important. Employees want to know their leaders have a plan (even if it’s not good news) and that it is communicated well. How much information you share, how you share it, and WHY you share it is crucial. We will explore different levels and definitions of the pay transparency “journey,” address where your institution is on that path and what can be done to keep it moving forward.

Addressing Mental Health: Especially now, the uncharted stresses of the world and the workplace are impacting the mental health and coping strategies of our employees. We have invited mental health professionals to speak with our groups on resources available to businesses to identify and proactively address your concerns.

Cybersecurity in Human Resources: COVID-19 opened the door to unscrupulous hackers looking to worm their way into your institution’s data. Particularly attractive is employee data that can be sold to identity thieves. As HR is the “keeper of the keys” to highly confidential employee information, one of Wipfli’s IT Risk Management consultants will walk you through actions you can take to protect your people and your data.
