Recently, Hanna Resource Group facilitated HR Boot Camp, a two-day training conference offered in conjunction with the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and Kentucky SHRM. With over 30 participants, this training was packed full of information for all levels of HR professionals. Lyle and his team of presenters went beyond the basics of HR to help participants look at how they could utilize each of the topics discussed to become key business partners within each of their companies.
The highly interactive program offered participants 8 different training sessions covering everything from HR audits to HR technology to compensation. HRG rounded out the program with an impressive executive panel featuring some highly seasoned, local HR professionals including: Brad Patrick, EVP and CHRO at Tempur-Pedic International; Susan Brewer, VP of HR and IT at Grey Construction; and Scott Nielson, Head Honcho of HR at Big Ass Fans. Panelists focused on how to build a strategic human resources department and become integral to the success of the business.
When asked the best piece of advice she could give about how to gain a seat at the executive leadership table, Susan Brewer responded, “People are people wherever you go. It’s all about learning the business.” Participants had the opportunity to ask many questions and gain insight into each of the panelists’ successful careers.
