Senior Human Resource Business Forums

2017-2018 Program Year

For over 20 years, Wipfli’s Senior Human Resource Business Forums have provided education on current trends and best practices in human resource (HR) management to each session’s participants. Our nine monthly Forums provide a professional and constructive environment in which to learn from our consultants, from other participants, and to discuss employment issues.

Participants receive supporting educational materials for five educational sessions, three sessions with robust discussion on current topics in HR, and a legal update session with a local employment attorney. Our consultants also professionally facilitate time at each session for participants to address pressing issues and problem-solve. With 90%+ of participants returning each year, trusted and lasting professional relationships are developed and supported.

Who should attend?
The Senior level forums are appropriate for individuals who have participated in the foundational Human Resource Business Forums or who have at least five years of experience in HR management.

Sessions are held at local Wipfli offices from 8:30 a.m. to noon on their scheduled date (unless noted otherwise). Our program year runs from September 2017 through May 2018 with monthly meetings that are 3.5 hours in length (total of 31.5 hours over nine months).
