Human Resource Business Forums-Foundational

2017-2018 Program Year

For over 20 years, Wipfli’s foundational Human Resource Business Forums have provided participants with education on the fundamentals of HR management and providing great HR service to their organizations.

Often referred to as “HR 101” participants receive supporting educational materials for each of the nine monthly sessions which are led by one of our seasoned HR consultants. At each session, our consultants also take time to professionally facilitate a discussion with participants to apply their learning, address pressing issues, and problem-solve.

Who should attend?
The foundational Human Resource Business Forum is ideal for individuals who do not have a formal education in HR management, who may be new to the field and are looking to acquire foundational knowledge, or who are looking to strengthen their technical skills.

Sessions are held at local Wipfli offices from 8:30 a.m. to noon on their scheduled date. 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).
