Workplace Planning & Development,

Putting the Greater New Orleans Area to Work

Workforce planning and development is one of the most important issues that human resources professionals are talking about today. Still, many have not gone beyond the talking stage. The task of actually implementing workforce planning is daunting because it is so difficult to define and difficult to source. Join us for an informative panel discussion to find suggestions to demystify what workforce development and planning is in the greater New Orleans areas and to discuss the reasons why every HR department and business owner should implement such an effort.
