A note on virtual working groups:  Sessions will be 90 minutes in length and are limited to 15 participants per session, allowing only one company member per topic.  If we have two sessions on the same topic the same applies, allowing only one company member for both sessions.  The limitation is to ensure that all participants have adequate time to share thoughts and ask questions.  The smaller number will simulate an actual working group and make it more conducive for participants to see and interact with one another.  In most cases, we will also do a CAHRScast on the same topic so all partners can benefit from the learning.)

While COVID-19 regularly gets the lion’s share of attention, the pandemic has been one of many changes to the work environment for CAHRS companies this year.  Natural disasters, fake news, protests, and deeper societal divides have also affected our companies and employees.  This has required that HR also adjust its support and no where is this evolving more that the HR Business Partner role. 

In this working group, CAHRS Executive Director Beth Flynn-Ferry will explore how CAHRS companies are addressing the challenges of providing HRBP support during tumultuous times.  Some of the questions we may address include:

•    What are the new challenges HRBPs are facing in supporting the business?
•    How has the role changed when working remotely?  How is this different for manufacturing?
•    Are there different or enhanced capabilities needed to excel as an HRBP during these times?
•    How are you planning to change your HRBP model going forward?

For security purposes, these Zoom working group sessions will be password protected and participation will be restricted to those participants who have been confirmed for a particular session.  Participation in these sessions is a great way to share and hear about key concerns, potential next steps and best practices, and to develop a network of HR leaders who are facing similar challenges for later one-on-one sharing and exchanges.
