The 2012 Human Resources Seminar will take a close look at proposed government regulations and how these regulations impact human resources within the poultry and egg industry. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, the annual seminar was developed by an industry committee of experienced and knowledgeable human resource managers. It will be held April 16-18, at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, FL.
“Regardless of how sophisticated equipment and machines may be, the success of a company ultimately depends upon its workforce. People are essential to managing and maintaining the complex systems of today, and they must make vital day-to-day decisions,” said program committee chairperson Linda Smith, Pilgrim’s Pride. “It is extremely important to stay up-to-date on areas that affect our workforce such as government regulations, union activities, changing trends in society, and changes in recruiting methods, retention, and training. The Human Resource Seminar will provide the tools necessary to ensure managers are provided with the most current information available in these areas.”
The program agenda will include the following topics: State of the Industry Update; Report from Washington on How the Industry Can Be More Proactive; Dealing With OSHA Inspections, ICE/I-9/State Immigration Laws, and EEOC/ADA/Aging Workforce Issues, along with other important topics. A series of roundtable workshops are also part of the agenda, covering topics such as Conducting Internal Investigations, NLRB/Union Activities/Election Process, Healthcare Reform, New Recruiting Trends/Hiring Process, Immigration Issues, and more.
