SEPTEMBER MEETING

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

11:15-1:00 PM 

Holiday Inn Downtown Duluth 

Presenting your HR Business Case to the C-Suite ~ Kendra Dodd


Learning Objectives:

1. Identify business problems where HR solutions can be most valuable.

2. Learn how to place a dollar value on the problems, solutions, and profit increase.

3. Create business proposals that solve business problems with HR solutions.

This session will challenge you to think like a partner in the business. That means you need to think like a CEO - or find out how your CEO thinks - in order to identify business problems and opportunities and offer viable HR solutions. Your effectiveness as a partner in the business is predicated on how successful you are in speaking the language of your senior leaders. We will also discuss how to dig up and generate applicable data in order to calculate dollars and cents to present to the C-Suite. Finally, we will walk through a business proposal step by step.

NHRA Leads Efforts to Combat Opioid Abuse in the Workplace

Opioid addictions, overdoses, and deaths continue to rise across St. Louis County and Duluth. Opioid addiction does not discriminate, and the opioid crisis is hitting manufacturing floors, office cubicles and even the C-suite at companies across Minnesota. Through the first week of March 2018, six in our county have already died among 19 confirmed opioid overdoses. 

On June 25th, NHRA partnered with Allied Against Opioid Abuse (AAOA) to provide education and awareness to employers, engage local communities, support solutions to reduce opioid abuse/misuse, and help eradicate the stigma surrounding addiction. The event provided a platform for business professionals and community members to dialog with subject matter experts, who presented timely information and vital resources to attendees.

The gravity of the opioid epidemic and remarkable response of attendees compelled NHRA to seek out additional employer resources even after the event. Members can view and download both event and post event provided resources here free of charge: https://nhra.wildapricot.org/page-18078.

On behalf of the NHRA, we thank AAOA for reaching out and partnering with us.
We are especially grateful to our panelists, who volunteered their time and expertise, provided invaluable resources, and remain available for follow up.

The opioid epidemic has reached into nearly every community and every workplace, so it is up to all of us to address the problem. When it comes to preventing prescription opioid abuse and misuse, knowledge is power. Get the information and share it as widely as possible!

From left to right - Patricia Stolee, NHRA Board President, introduces panelists:

Lieutenant Jeff Kazel, Commander of the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force
Greg Anderson, Program Supervisor, St. Louis County Public Health
Tim Ollhoff, Director, NuVantage Employee Assistance Program/Lutheran Social Services
Dr. Elisabeth Bilden, MD - Medical Toxicologist, Essentia Health - Medical Consultant, St. Louis County Public Health and the Community Health Board for Cook, Carlton, Lake and St. Louis Counties - Consultant, Minnesota Poison Control System

Employersand community members realize the magnitude of the opioid epidemic in the TwinPorts.

SHRM HOT 3 NEWS

EEOC:  Ageism Persists in the Workplace



Fifty years after the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) was passed, ageism remains too common and accepted, says a new report from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Google Places Limits on Workplace Discussions


Google—known for its culture of open debate—has released guidelines saying it will discipline any employee who discriminates against colleagues or engages in discussions that are disruptive to a productive work environment, according to The Wall Street Journal. The rules come nearly a year after the company dismissed an engineer who wrote a memo criticizing the company's diversity programs and saying that gender differences might partly account for women's underrepresentation in the technology sector.
