    “Self-Care – The HR Professional Must Survive”

    The demands and pressures on HR have always been immense but never so much as during the last 2 years of the pandemic. We have worked tirelessly to help our companies comply with various health and safety protocols while also assisting our leaders and employees navigate how they can work effectively in hybrid environments.

    Perhaps we have even advised our employees on self-care, but how much do we really understand about this topic and to what degree have we been role models for practicing what we preach? This 1-hour interactive presentation is just for us! We must survive and take care of ourselves first, in order to build and maintain a reservoir of energy to help and support others (e.g. our families, co-workers, etc.).

    During this session we will address the importance of Self Care for the HR Professional and more specifically focus on.

    •  Learning the difference between worry, stress, and anxiety.
    •  Recognizing warning signs to watch for to ensure we are properly taking care of ourselves.
    •  Learning the importance of managing stress and why boundary setting is so important.
    •  Learning how to recognize when we might need additional support.
