What to expect
The class focuses on the attached HR Scenarios on the last day of class in a 2-hour session. Suggested responses in blue text are available to HR professionals and the facilitators, but not the learners. While there may not be time to touch on every scenario, we anticipate the conversations will be rich! Our goal is that through this experience, learners will think about ways to address the many possible facets of complex situations, and better understand the support and partnership available to them through the HR community.
