    Presentation Overview: 

    After a few Treasure Valley employers announced plans to require employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19, several HRATV members have asked for resources related to vaccination policies and other workplace issues related to COVID-19 developments.  John Ashby, an employment lawyer and co-chair of the HRATV Legislative Affairs committee, will address several employment law developments related to COVID-19.  This presentation will not advocate either for or against vaccination mandates.  Instead, John will explain the various options employers have with regard to vaccination policies – from mandating vaccines, to programs encouraging vaccination, to a completely hands-off approach – and the pros and cons and legal ramifications of each approach.  John will also discuss the various approaches local employers are taking in response to the CDC’s most recent mask guidance.  Finally, John will discuss employment law issues surrounding employee leave for COVID-19 issues.

    About the Presenter:  

    John Ashby is an experienced employment lawyer and is the chair of Hawley Troxell’s Employment Law Practice Group.  John represents employers in all areas of employment law, including wrongful discharge, discrimination, harassment and fair labor standard practice claims.  John believes that good training and a proactive approach can prevent most employment law claims.  However, when employees do raise claims, John represents employers in court or in proceedings before the Idaho Human Rights Commission, the EEOC and the Department of Labor.

    WASSMUTH CENTER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS TOUR

    Join your fellow HRATV members, August 18th @ 4:30 p.m. or 19th @ 12:30 p.m.  Each tour will take approximately 90 mins and we will tour the outdoor monument, new classroom and education center as well as a virtual introduction to four holocaust survivors and one survivor from the Nanjing Massacre.   Each tour can accommodate up to 25 participants.

    The year 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, and they're looking forward to the dawn of a new era of continued program growth. The City of Boise has offered the opportunity to build a permanent center within the licensing agreement of the land designated as the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial. Not only is the Memorial the only Anne Frank memorial in the United States, it is also one of the few places in the world in which the entire text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is on permanent display, and it is recognized as an international Site of Conscience.


    The dramatic presence of a comprehensive human rights education center will add to the state’s reputation as both a welcoming and compassionate community in the capital city.  The new Wassmuth Center for Human Rights will blend into the Memorial landscape, providing both a focal backdrop behind the central waterfall in the Memorial and adding an expanded buffer zone between the memorial and 9th Street traffic. Designed by local firm Erstad Architects, the building will enhance both the physical and spatial impact of the memorial.

    Got A Minute: The 9 Lessons Every HR Professional Must Learn to Be Successful

    By: Dale J. Dwyer PhD and Sheri A. Caldwell PhD

    Read and discuss the book.

    Designed to help HR and line managers deal with challenging employees in the workplace, this book enlists a novel approach by tying together several real-life--and often entertaining--examples of employee behavior within a broad range of circumstances. Following the stories in each chapter, an analysis of how the HR professionals handled the situations highlights the benefits and detriments of their choices, showcasing both successes and failures--and what can be learned from them. Providing valuable examples and thought-process guidance, this record is ideal for understanding the ethical and legally defensible practices of human resource management.

    The Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is pleased to announce the August Professional Development and Networking program "On-Demand Coaching:  A New Leadership Development and Retention Solution in Response to Emerging Trends" presented by CC Cameron, MBA, PhD, a Senior Talent Management Consultant and Executive Coach with Right Management, the global leader in talent and career management workforce solutions within ManpowerGroup. Emerging global workplace trends in 2021 have set the stage for new demands in the space of leadership development as a retention strategy.

    Learning Objectives:  

    As a result of attending this session, participants will:

    • Examine three key trends that are transforming talent management in 2021
    • Recognize the agility and benefits that coaching offers as a leadership development and retention solution
    • Explore the unique value proposition of cloud coaching in response to evolving workplace demands

      Performance Conversations: Using Questions to Coach Employees, Improve Productivity and Boost Confidence (Without Appraisals) 

      By: Christopher Lee

      Read and discuss Chapters 1 to 9

      There are three universal truths about traditional performance management. They are widely used, universally despised, and are known to be ineffective. As a result, many organizations are grappling with what to do instead. They have adopted many interesting and innovative practices, but most are a random collection of activities that are not bound together by a sound theoretical framework. This new approach is built upon a sound theoretical foundation, uses proven management techniques, and offers a novel framework and tool for managers for regulating and enhancing the performance of their staff. Dozens of ready-to-use templates and accompanying tools help make good management practice more accessible, practical, and effective. Just as important, the new approach is both millennial- and remote worker-friendly as it incorporates features that speak to how they work.

      The Power of Appreciative Inquiry 

      By: Diana Whitney and Amanda Trosten-Bloom

      Read Chapters 1 to 6

      The Power of Appreciative Inquiry describes the internationally embraced approach to organizational change that dramatically improves performance by engaging people to study, discuss, and build upon what’s working – strengths – rather than trying to fix what’s not. Diana Whitney and Amanda Trosten-Bloom, pioneers in the development and practice of Appreciative Inquiry (AI), provide a menu of eight results-oriented applications, along with case examples from a wide range of organizations to illustrate Appreciative Inquiry in action. A how-to book, this is the most authoritative and accessible guide to the newest ideas and practices in the field of Appreciative Inquiry since its inception in 1985.
