• Human Resources Education

    For more than twenty-five years the Chamber’s Human Resources Group (HRG) Advisory Board has encouraged education, participation, mentoring, inclusion and networking for those charged with responsibility for human resources within organizations of varying sizes.

    The Advisory Board is made up of HR practitioners, employment and labor attorneys, and human resources consultants.  They coordinate a dynamic monthly programming schedule that is of interest to small business leaders, managers, human resources specialists and generalists, and those who have human resources responsibilities in addition to other duties within their organizations.  In a world of changing laws and regulations affecting the people side of the business, the “Ask the Lawyer” roundtable event with tables hosted by employment and labor lawyers from the South Shore and the Annual Employment Law Update co-sponsored and presented by Chamber President's Partner, Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane, LLP are integral parts of the annual programming.  Other topics are selected based on feedback from past attendees and input from the advisory board members and Chamber membership. 

    In addition to monthly programs, the Advisory Board works to ensure that employers of all sizes are informed of the professional requirements associated with human resource management, assists Chamber leadership in clarifying the impact of recommended or pending legislation and select legal issues that affect human resource management issues at companies of all sizes, and promotes inclusion, valuing differences in support of the changing demographics of the South Shore community and member businesses.

    The Advisory Board welcomes your feedback not only on topics for our regular programming but also your input into what else you need to ensure that you are handling the human resources piece of your business with confidence.
