Annual Meeting June 13!

Happiness, Resilience, and Employee Retention: Strategies to Help YOU

Human Resource professionals need strategies to support their own wellbeing, as well as to support employees. Join us as we hear from an expert in the field of Happiness and Resilience, JoAnna Brandi. 

JoAnna, Certified Chief Happiness Officer and the principal of JoAnna Brandi & Company, Inc., is an engaging speaker with some great tips to share that will help you weed out negative thoughts (the seeds of stress!) and develop resilience by changing your thinking. JoAnna has worked with numerous CEOs and organizations to help them learn how to better care for their employees and customers.

The meeting will also include a panel discussion with fellow HR professionals who will reveal strategies they use to maintain perspective, and a presentation by Sharon Van Auken, Business Advisor and HR consultant for CITEC, who will discuss strategies for engaging and retaining today’s employees.
