What a great conference we have enjoyed! Today's power packed schedule included continental breakfast beginning at 7AM and followed by the Keynote Speaker for the Morning Session.
Stuart Jackson provided valuable insight into the Medical Marijuana issue in Arkansas and where we are headed in the coming years.
Following up at 9:30AM, Robert Lemke spoke about the ever important topic of Pay Equity. Are you sure that your organization has done the right things to ensure that pay equity exists? If not, you should waste no time in reviewing your procedures and payroll to ensure like employed/tasked team members are receiving like pay. Failing to do so may lead you and your organization to costly and embarassing legal issues, plus reduced morale in your workplace.
Just a few moments ago, our keynote speaker, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson took the podium to address the group about the importance of strong Human Resources practices and policies he and his administration have championed to help promote a climate for job growth and employee growth/development in the state of Arkansas.
If you did not attend ELLA this year - we encourage you to put it on your calendar for next year. This conference is great!
