San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2009
The Northern California HR Association (NCHRA) celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its annual conference -- HR West -- April 28-29, 2009 in South San Francisco. Since 1984, NCHRA has hosted the largest West Coast gathering of the HR community. HR West presents the opportunity for two days of unparalled learning, exceptional networking and more than 50 educational sessions covering all facets of HR.
25 years ago, hundreds of Bay Area human resources professionals joined together in the spirit of collaboration and success to plan the first HR West Annual Conference. Today, the problems are not only as complex as ever, they exist in the context of one of the most difficult global economies in recent history.
"Effective human resources is more critical to organizational success than ever," says Danika Davis, NCHRA CEO. "In a fluid business environment, leading practitioners of the science and art of HR position their organizations and the people that comprise them to succeed because of or in spite of external pressures. Throughout the years, the 100s of great HR leaders who attend HR West are dedicated to continual learning and then effectively design and execute strategies that positively impact hundreds of thousands of Bay Area citizens in the workplace and beyond."
This year's event answers the question on every business professional's mind -- how do organizations stay on top in a bottoming out economy? From retaining top talent and facilitating tough conversations to successfully handling mass reductions in force and finding affordable health care options for the workplace, the stellar lineup of presenters provide solutions to address today's problems. Attendees will gain real strategies and techniques to improve the workplace immediately. Visit http://www.hrwest.org for more on the event.
The Northern California HR Association has been advancing organizations through human resources since 1960. We are dedicated to connecting human resources professionals with practice resources, leading California-specific training, legal and legislative developments, quality service providers, and each other--forming career-long networks and partnerships.
