Who Succeeds at Work and Who Doesn’t? HR Meeting This October Explores the Forces at Work

Posted on September 21, 2018 By

Many factors can affect a person’s career advancement in an organization. Why is it some people’s careers seem to accelerate while others who work hard can’t get ahead?

The presentation “Creating an Inclusive Workplace” examines the forces operating in today’s workplace at the monthly meeting of JSAHR (The Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources), open to the public, Thursday, October 11, 2018, from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., at Jumping Brook Country Club, 210 Jumping Brook Road, Neptune, N.J.

Learn the eight diversity-related forces, examine how they may impact an individual positively or negatively, discuss who is responsible to counteract these forces, and suggest strategies to counteract them.

The registration fee, including a full buffet breakfast, is $30.00 for JSAHR members; $40.00 for nonmembers; $25.00 for guests and those in-transition, and $10.00 for full-time students. Sponsorship for this meeting is still available.
