Reinventing the Employee Handbook

Presented by Melissa Hajjar, PHR

Helios HR, Washington, DC

This is not your average handbook update! Discover what’s new in the world of employee handbooks. Today’s workplace has evolved, and your employee handbook should too. In this interactive and lively discussion, Melissa Hajjar, HR Management Consultant with Helios HR, will share what trends she sees in the market, their advice among clients, and the latest must-haves in employee handbooks.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Pivot and adjust to the evolving workforce expectations and employee experience by re-evaluating what works and what doesn’t work with the current handbook.
  • Effectively communicate the critical components within an employee handbook while demonstrating the organization’s intended culture.
  • Stay informed of industry trends, DEIB best practices, and frequent regulatory changes.

Parking permits are not required.  Parking is available in a number of locations including the lots

  • on 6th street along the west side of the Bakery District building (across from Hanna Oil and Gas)
  • adjacent to the National Cemetery (north edge) on Garland Avenue (FREE)
  • adjacent to the ArcBest Corporation Performing Arts Center on the east side of Wheeler (Free)
  • and for a nominal rate in metered spaces and the parking garage at 715 Rogers Avenue.
