     5 Koalafications For Amazingly Awesome HR

    With all that is going on in the world and at work, the need for amazing HR has never been greater. According to Gallup, nearly 2 out of every 3 American workers are not engaged at work. Who is responsible? Lots of fingers can be pointed in a variety of directions which gets us nowhere. That said, the profession of Human Resources has the best chance to change the course of engagement levels for the modern workforce. During this thought-provoking presentation, participants will receive specific strategies and take-aways to ensure they are making an impact on their employees, managers, executives and organizations.

    1. Identify the five keys to making an impact: Purpose, People, Productivity, Profit, and Processes
    2. Develop and implement your impactful strategic plan for your organization's purpose, people, productivity, profit, and processes
    3. Learn how to make an impact by removing the barriers that HR faces with detractors

    John is a husband, father, brother, entrepreneur, author, and life-long Northeast Ohioan. Over the last 15 years, he has started or been an owner in six business ventures and is the president and founder of Willory, a staffing and consulting firm solely focused in HR and payroll. John’s latest project, HR Like a Boss, a book releasing in 2021 and a multimedia chat series, delves into how HR professionals can become amazingly awesome and make a demonstrated impact within their role. In addition to spending time with his wife of over 20 years, Emily, and their two children, Will and Mallory, John loves to golf, coach sports, root for Cleveland sports teams (he is a die-hard), and consistently runs in the Akron Marathon relay race.
