SHRM Hawaii Identifies Top Concerns Among Hawaii Human Resources Professionals

In a March 2009 survey, SHRM Hawaii asked our members to rank the issues most important to them.  The Top Three Concerns of SHRM Hawaii Members are


1.       Dealing With Reductions in Force (emotions, those left behind, result is HR now wearing   

          many hats, etc.)

2.       Keeping Employees Engaged and Motivated

3.       Keeping Health Care Costs Down (without eliminating benefits)

In May, SHRM Hawaii announced a new webinar series in order to equip our members with the tools for addressing these concerns in their workplace.  Please check our Calendar of Events frequently for the most up-to-date information on our programs.
