2 days in person seminar on Project Management in Human Resources By Cathleen M Hampton

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Diego Downtown San Diego, California United States
Event Listing


Learn the imperative questions to ask before you even begin - get the information that will make certain you key in on what is expected, by when, and at what cost

Practice using the planning and scheduling tools that professional project managers use (GANTT charts, the critical path method, work breakdown structures, project management software, and others)

Discover the best practices for gathering your team, how to articulate the kind of skills, attitudes, and work habits you're looking for, and how to encourage your team to focus on your work and even a few ideas for how to deal with their rather reluctant bosses

Implement the controls and safety nets you need to establish early on: learn how to set (and meet) milestones, gain confidence to negotiate for new deadlines if necessary, motivate a team that's losing interest, and determine what to do when plans change midstream - or when the "Murphy factor" hits your project in a big way

Why should you attend:

Naturally, getting a project to deliver on time, within budget, and in line with quality standards requires savvy management. And, the bigger the project, the more challenging good management becomes. As a professional, you're expected to transform a vague concept into a measurable outcome by channeling a broad array of knowledge, skills, and resources toward a critical organizational goal.

Who will benefit:

Self-taught project managers seeking enrichment training and new skills

Project teams having trouble juggling their tasks and responsibilities

People with limited experience in spearheading a project

Anyone about to step into a project manager role for the first time

Seminar on Family and Medical Leave Act
8/7/2014 9:00 AM - 8/8/2014 6:00 PM
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Diego Downtown San Diego, California United States
Event Listing


The federal FMLA requires employers to grant eligible employees at least 12 weeks of unpaid medical leave in the event of an employee's serious illness or the serious illness of immediate family members. As much as 26 weeks of leave is available to families caring for certain military service personnel, in addition to leave to care for seriously ill or injured military personnel the FMLA. Military families may also get up to 12 weeks of leave for a "qualified exigency," which includes such circumstances as preparing for immediate deployment. FMLA leave can be taken in one continuous period of time or taken from time to time as needed.

The issues that arise for employers include knowing, among others, when an employee has a "serious health condition" as defined by law and not by the employer's doctor, when an employer can seek verification from a physician that the employee still cannot return to work, and what notices employers must provide and when.

This program is designed to provide an overview of the FMLA and the relevant regulations, to discuss amendments or modifications from the last few years, to discuss integrating FMLA with your other leave programs and to provide suggestions as to how to minimize employee abuse of this valuable benefit.

Why should you attend:

New developments include the application of the statute to same-sex couples (in at least16 states), expanded benefits for military families and clearer guidelines in the regulations.

Virtually every HR Director in a company of 50 or more employees will have to administer FMLA leave. One of the most common complaints among employers, however, is that some employees will seek to abuse FMLA leave. Such abuse can impose significant cost upon employers in terms of time and money.
