The Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is pleased to announce the August Professional Development and Networking program "Building While Flying: Developing Data-Driven and Flexible Workforce Attraction and Retention Strategies" presented by Raleen Gagnon.  We will also be collecting school supplies in support of the United Way (see details below).

Business leaders experienced more changes to their workforce strategies in the past two years than they could have ever expected. And many HR leaders have questions still to be answered in 2022.

Two of the biggest being:

• Where do I find the workforce I need?

• Where will they work?

The talent shortage is impacting businesses across all industries and forcing employers to evaluate the types of workers they are requiring (permanent, contingent, gig) and where they can work (on or off-site). 

    Not all jobs can be remote and not all workers want to work remotely. However, for those workers that do want remote to be their permanent work model, they have many options during a talent shortage. 

    Employers know that offering flexibility in where, when and how people work can be the key to both attracting and retaining the workers they need.

    Yet there are many other factors to consider – such as:

    • What will it cost to shift to more remote workers? 
    • Can we have a successful mix of on-site and remote workers? 
    • How does this change based on where our company is located? 
    • What if we cannot offer remote work? 

      In this session Raleen will:

      • Provide a roadmap to HR leaders as to what the hiring landscape looks like
      • How to use data to determine the right worker mix for them. 

      She will also outline 5 emerging strategies to strengthen their remote workforce attraction and retention strategies for 2022 and beyond.

      In Person Meeting Protocols

      We are looking forward to seeing everyone in person. We wanted to make everyone aware of the safety protocols that will be in place at the Galaxy so you can make an informed decision if you want to attend. The Galaxy has hand sanitizing stations though out the facility and has stringent cleaning protocols in place. The Galaxy will have masked servers for us to utilize at the buffet line. We are also limiting the amount of people per table to 8. Feel free to wear a mask if that is your preference,  however, we will not require masks at our meeting.


      We will be collecting items at the meeting to support the United Way. As the school year starts, we know many teachers purchase items for their students out of their own pockets. It’s our hope to help every student find success in the classroom without asking teachers to dip into their own bank accounts. Donations of school supplies not only provide students with the right tools but remind them that there is a community of support invested in their success. List of ideas for school supplies:

      o Paper

      o Pencils

      o Pens

      o Markers

      o Crayons

      o Safety scissors

      o School glue/glue sticks

      o Rulers

      o Erasers

      o Binders

      o Notebooks/composition books

      o Backpacks

      o Lunch boxes
