SBHRA - HR Department of One Series

13 Apr 2017 11:30 AM | Anonymous

 Join us on Thursday, April 13th, when SBHRA initiates the yearlong, 12-session program HR Department of One, designed for the solo HR practitioner, office manager, controller, or other manager tasked with the job of being the HR person in the workplace.

DATE: 2nd Thursday of the month, 12 sessions, begins April 13, 2017
TIME: 11:30 AM-1:30 PM
WHERE: Office of Emergency Management, Santa Barbara

: One-time $25 fee for all sessions
LUNCH: Brown bag, bring your own


We are pleased to announce that SBHRA is introducing a very special program called the “HR Department of One.”

The program is designed for the solo HR Practitioner, office manager, payroll manager, controller or other manager who has been tasked by the CEO or COO to “Become the HR person.”

This program may not apply to you, but we hope that, if you know an HR colleague who fits this description, you’ll pass on this email.

The symposium has been designed by fellow SBHRA members, most of whom are or have been the Department of One and learned HR the hard way.  They will be sharing their expertise with real-life examples, and how they solved HR issues, providing insight into problem-identification and how to interpret rules and regulations.

SBHRA is offering the program not only to its own members, but to the many small companies in the Tri-County area who either have such a person in place with no training on the ins and outs of HR Management, or have been thinking about adding those responsibilities to someone in the organization.  Given the plethora of workplace regulations in California, this program can help employers stay out of trouble by understanding how to comply with the laws and avoid potential employee complaints or lawsuits.

Sessions will occur on the second Thursday of each month and include “bring your own brown bag" lunch.  The time will be 11:30 AM–1:00 PM and take place in the Office of Emergency Management building, 4408 Cathedral Oaks Road, Santa Barbara. There will be plenty of free parking; water and coffee will be provided.

A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to those who complete the 12-session symposium.

Registration for the program opens March 22nd.  There is a one-time $25.00 fee that covers all sessions, materials included. Go to www. to register.

We look forward to your attendance or of someone you know who might benefit from the program.

Thank you!
